Ahab – Finding yourself on the “dead pile” of a Canadian slaughterhouse is not the best start in life. Fortunately, now that this very social boy is at CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm, his only concern is whether to first take a nap or a mud bath before feasting on fruit, bread, vegetables, grain and juice.
Charo – Life as a gestation sow in a factory farm…couldn’t get worse, right? Unfortunately for this Yorkshire/Landrace porcine, it was about to as her Oakville, Iowa farm (along with every other farm) was destroyed and she had to avoid drowning and shootings, only to suffer pneumonia, severe sunburn, and starvation. Despite this rough start, Charo’s story has a happy ending now that she has found a home (with love, food, and shade) here at CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm.
Suzie – This “fugitive” piglet first caught our attention when her story made the papers. She’d eluded police in the Panhandle for two weeks before, out of frustration, they set a hunting dog after her, cornered her, then tased her. A public outcry ensured she was donated to CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm, where now she spends her days napping, eating, and regaling her days on the lam.
