From Free From Harm:

On February 20, Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania got a call about a piglet in need of a home. A week earlier, a humane police officer had responded to a citizen complaint about a situation of extreme animal neglect: two emaciated piglets who were being raised for “backyard meat” had been languishing for months in an uninsulated, outdoor pen during one of the harshest winters in decades. Night after night for weeks on end the two piglet brothers huddled together through sub-zero temperatures, whipping winds, and blistering blizzards. With no straw or bedding in their exposed pen, they were forced to lie in ice and freezing mud. 

Sadly, one of the piglets died before help came to rescue them. One piglet though, now called Jeremiah, was saved. You can see the story of his recovery above. It’s all similar pictures for the first few minutes but at 3:50 there’s adorbs footage of happy Jeremiah! 

Thinking of this young pig in the freezing cold breaks my heart. But to see him now! Incredible! And I’ve said it before but this makes me say it again: animals’ capacity to trust and forgive is amazing. 

Read the rest of the story at Free From Harm and donate to the Idraloka sanctuary to help animals like Jeremiah!
