Hello everyone, it’s been a month since my pig bro GG left us. The house seems very empty without him & I have had to comfort huMom a lot because she gets sad when she thinks of him.
We wanted to do something to honor GG’s memory. So we are sponsoring a pig called Pumba, who lives at the Ruby Ranch pig & Farm Animal Sanctuary. It’s run by huMom’s friends Sherry & Bob.
It’s not good that Sanctuaries for pigs are necessary but I’m glad there are humans like Sherry & Bob. People get fooled into thinking micro or teacup pigs are real. They aren’t. Pot Bellied pigs like GG can be smaller than pigs like Esther, but still, GG was about 150 lbs. On top of that, pigs are not like dogs or cats. They are more like small humans, not fully able to reason with but well able to demand. Far too often humans get a pig not understanding that they will get big, are very intelligent & will be a 15 – 20 year commitment.
With our monthly donation we will help cover the cost of Pumba’s food & shelter throughout his life. There are many pigs at Ruby Ranch so any help is always welcome. Shelters for pigs have become like shelters for dogs & cats in that they are often stretched to the limit. Too many pigs are being surrendered by humans who didn’t do their due diligence.
Perhaps you would like to sponsor a pig. I bet there is a pig rescue near you that could use help. GG would be pleased.
