Potbelly pigs want properties at Allegany County SPCA animal shelter

The animal welfare group is accustomed to sheltering deserted, uncared for and abused companion animals similar to cats and canine, however when 27 potbelly pigs had been handed over to the company on September 19, there was no room for protest. Nonetheless, there was quite a lot of pig punishment.

Linda Prusky, government director of the SPCA, which serves Allegany County, stated the pigs got here from a farm in Allegany County. She stated they had been voluntarily handed over to the SPCA by their proprietor and that there was no legal cost concerned.

Potbellies embrace younger pigs and adults, each women and men, and are all thought of to be on the smaller aspect, weighing in at lower than 100 kilos.

“It was a bit overwhelming when all of it occurred however we’re achieved with it,” Prusci stated. “Historically, we shelter cats and canine however we (shelter) cattle and different forms of animals.

“We have had one or two[potbelly pigs]within the final ten years. Possibly we have had 4[total]in that interval, however by no means 27 without delay. That is what makes it all of the more difficult.”
