Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary is bringing you the story of Rose, an adorable little piglet who needs a lot of love and attention.
This poor little girl was found covered in asphalt burns and in severe shock. She was listless and unresponsive when she was rushed to a veterinary hospital by Blind Spot volunteers, and the Sanctuary was unsure she would make it through the night.
It looks like Rose is another victim of a feeder farm, falling from a truck during transport. These farms fatten up piglets ready for market and give little thought to the animals in their care. The fact this farm couldn’t even provide this piglet with safe transportation shows just how little value they placed on her life!
But little Rose is a fighter, and thankfully, the medication she was given along with fluids to rehydrate her have started to kick in. Rose has a fractured leg because of her fall, and with all her other wounds, she is in a very sorry state. She needs nutrition and glucose to heal, but it looks as though she was torn from her mother, and at that age, only knows how to nurse, so she is refusing food. It’s going to take around-the-clock care and attention to help Rose recover.
Here is Rose with one of her rescuers, wrapped up in a cozy blanket, shown more affection in these few moments than she probably has in her entire short life. They hope once Rose is strong enough, she will be able to join the other pigs at Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary. Get well soon, Rose!
Pigs are beautiful animals that are sociable, intelligent beings, far more suited to living their lives out in fields and pastures than ending up served on our dinner plates! Factory farmed animals lead lives no one would want to be inflicted with, kept in cramped conditions, taken from their mothers long before they are ready, and raised only for slaughter. The fact no one even noticed Rose fell from this truck proves she was a replaceable commodity. These animals deserve so much more than that!
Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary works hard to rescue, rehabilitate, and care for animals who have been surrendered, abandoned or exploited. If you are interested in following Rose’s story or want to know more about the sanctuary’s incredible work, please visit their Facebook page.
