It was with great interest that Pigs & Pugs read about the discovery of Victory, a small black piglet, found running around NW DC (where pig ownership is prohibited). After a diligent search by the team at Humane Rescue Alliance, Victory was located and safely transported to HRA’s New York Avenue facility. After determining that he had several puncture wounds, likely from a bite, Victory was given medical care and rested up before his journey to Gratitude Gate Farm Sanctuary, 250 acres of farm sanctuary heaven in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
As pigs like Victory can grow to be well over 100 pounds, Gratitude Gate will be a perfect spot for him to wander, snort, and live out a happy, hopefully muddy, life. Pigs & Pugs made a $200 donation to the sanctuary for Victory’s care (and feeding). We’re thankful to our friends at Gratitude Gate Farm Sanctuary for giving Victory another lap of life!
While Pigs & Pugs generally focuses our resources and support on either pug rescues or pig sanctuary organizations, when we saw the heartbreaking photos of animals separated from their owners due to the wildfires, with bandaged paws, among other injuries, we knew we needed to do something.
Because of their tremendous efforts, we reached out to the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC), who provides safe sheltering for animals as a result of the active fires that have affected thousands of area residents. DACC has sheltered OVER 800 ANIMALS since November 8th, including dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, llamas, and donkeys!
Through the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation, we’ve made a $250 contribution to Noah’s Legacy Fund, which provides supplies, training and equipment to support these ongoing rescue efforts. Pigs & Pugs is grateful for and to these heroes and the compassion and care they bring to their rescue and recovery efforts.
