11 Piglets Saved After Farmers Have a Change of Heart

Husband and wife farmers in Virginia had a plan: Raise some pigs and then make a tidy profit by selling them. But along the way, something wonderful happened: The farmers realized that pigs were beings, not “bacon.”

The couple called PETA, and we jumped at the chance to make sure that 11 piglets never wound up on anyone’s dinner plate. We took custody of them and immediately transported them to a veterinary office, where they were all examined, microchipped, and given a clean bill of health.

The piglets spent that night at PETA’s Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters, the Sam Simon Center, in a room prepared especially for them with lots of fluffy straw to root through and fresh veggies to munch on. The following morning, they embarked on an eight-hour drive to their permanent home—the 110-acre Catskill Animal Sanctuary in upstate New York, a safe haven for hundreds of rescued cows, pigs, chickens, horses, and other farmed animals.

If these farmers can have a change of heart, so can anybody! Letting pigs live is as easy as leaving the ham and bacon on the supermarket shelf.
