Pigs are one of those animals that has a bad reputation for being dirty and mean. Ironically, these barnyard animals are very sweet creatures that love human interaction. A precious pig named Julia had a shocking life story, unlike any other infamous porker.
While you like to think of animals as these happy creatures spending time with their loved ones outdoors, that’s not always the case. 95% of pigs raised in the United States are kept in unsafe and unsanitary conditions.
Julia was one of those pigs that were being abused at a farm in Upstate New York. The conditions were so horrible that an employee alerted the police. Thankfully, the police called Farm Sanctuary to intervene.
This caring animal sanctuary was able to take Julia and other animals into their arms to give them a second chance at life. Little did they know Julia was pregnant with 17 adorable piglets. She successfully gave birth and lived a long and happy life at the sanctuary.
