Pigs are all-too-often overlooked as “cute” or “loveable” due to a common misperception that they’re dirty, greedy, and noisy animals. But the truth is that pigs are pretty adorable and they can be as friendly as the average cat or dog. Unfortunately, most domesticated pigs are raised as livestock for leather and meat, with few living past the age of six months, when they’re sent to slaughter. Despite their emotional awareness, intelligence, and sensitivities, pigs are seen as bacon, gammon or sausages, and remain to be one of the most abused animals in the world. Over 100 million pigs are raised and slaughtered in the United States alone each year, most of whom are born and raised in intensive factory farming operations.

If left to their own devices, even domesticated pigs would build communal nests, snuggling up together when cold or sleeping, looking after each other to ensure everyone is cared for. Considered to be the most intelligent domestic animal alive today, pigs are also naturally curious, joyful, and loyal.

We’ve found five amazing stories of pigs that are worth getting excited about, reminding us exactly how incredible these animals are!

This is inspiring AND incredibly adorable. Reading stories like this makes me a bit sad thinking of where these animals came from but then also incredibly hopeful because someone saved them and gave them a good home, faith in humanity restored. smiley.gif
