In a heartwarming turn of events, two farrows of piglets were birthed at the Houston SPCA campus less than a week after four Vietnamese Pot-bellied pigs were rescued along with three female sheep and their three lambs from north Houston. When the Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigator and Harris County Precinct I arrived, they said the animals were found emaciated with no food or water.
To celebrate the new arrivals, moms and their friends were treated to a fruitcuterie board made with grapes, apples, bananas, and strawberries.
The piglets have been named Gizmo, Sweetie, Piggie, Suey, Hamlet, Goonie, Tweetie, and Berta. Once the piglets are weened and older, they will be available for adoption along with the other rescued farm animals.
