Piglets & Goats Rescued
November 15, 2011 -
No, the dog isn't one of the animals rescued, but she has bonded with Mishka, the little piglet on the left. (She's also a tripod like little Carmen!)
Mishka would be dead if not for one person.
The four animals were bought at auction and used as gimmicks for a pumpkin patch petting zoo.
What no one told the excited children and parents is the animals would be sent to slaughter the day after the pumpkin patch closed.
A volunteer refused to let that happen. If you doubt what one person can do, ask Mishka.
Mishka and his friends are at our Rescue Ranch facility, which has saved over 2,000 animals this year alone!
The two Boer goats are available for adoption through our Rescue Ranch program. They are incredibly friendly...which makes the betrayal by the petting zoo all the more awful.
Mishka and his buddy will get healthy and head up to our Grass Valley facility in the coming months!
