Before you decide to peruse or read this, the puppy in this story was a foster.  This little story for me had a bittersweet ending for I had become attached to “Spotty” and knew that as soon as he was strong and had gained weight and provided that he did not get sick, I would have to give him up to another rescuer who drove him to Austin,TX and then turned him over to another rescue organization.

Take a look at this female pig, trapped in a gestational crate, unable to turn, move, breathe fresh air or feel the sun on her back — living out her miserable life in a factory farm  Tell me you cannot feel her pain and sadness just by looking at her in this photo.

Oh and btw, gestational crates are the equivalent to being strapped into an airline chair for your entire life… noodle on that the next time you board a plane.  This is what life is like for sows in factory farms.  

Now look at this picture of a rescued pig living her life on a farm sanctuary. Can you see the difference?  It’s pretty obvious isn’t it.
