SPOKANE, Wash. – Eight full grown pigs, weighing approximately 600 pounds each, were recently rescued by SCRAPS from a farm in Spokane County.
The pigs, along with dozens of other farm animals, were malnourished and living in filthy conditions when they were rescued.
SCRAPS is now asking for donations of vegetables like cabbage, carrots, squash, apples and pumpkins to help feed the porkers.
“If people are replacing their fall decorative pumpkins with Christmas holly, we’d like them to consider bringing them down to SCRAPS,” said Nancy Hill, Executive Director of SCRAPS. “Please make sure they are still edible and we will take them to the pigs for feed.”
The pigs will soon be available for adoption. Those interested in being pig parents can leave their name, address and phone number at the front desk and will later be contacted.
