Penelope Sue’s Dream Came True…

The story of this perfect pink piglet starts first with her mother. 

Piggy Sue, a kindly sow with the saddest of eyes, was rescued by Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary with a rough past hidden behind her battered body. And we soon learned that there was something else that was well hidden beneath frail frame, with the birth of nine piglets! 

Amongst the tiny babies was an even tinier one, Penelope Sue. Being a ‘runty’ little girl she needed a bit of a hand, and that is just what we gave her.

Penelope Sue soon found ‘Piggy Paradise’ in a special space named just that - complete with a wallow for her to bathe in on sunny days, ample space to forage to her heart’s content, and a soft bed of golden straw to nestle in for a snooze. 

There, Penelope Sue found a life truly worth living alongside her best buddy Ballet Bob, and they could often be found spooning or sleeping snout to snout. She relished delicious food and belly rubs from kind humans in equal measure. 

Reminding us of just how clean pigs are, Penelope Sue would go to the toilet as far away from her sleeping quarters as possible, and she daily demonstrated her smarts and problem solving abilities. 

Luckily for Penelope Sue, her dreams were fulfilled, but sadly for most other pigs theirs will not. Kept in cramped conditions and denied their natural behaviours before having their lives reduced to pork, ham and bacon, no one will ever get to know what incredible and unique animals they really were. Animals who can feel fear and pain, and respond to love and kindness.

But you can change this. Please pledge to have a Kind Christmas today!
