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.

By the time the humane police were notified of this situation, one of the piglets had already died and the other was near death’s door. The responding officer visited the residence and was able to persuade the owner to surrender the listless and critically ill piglet for urgent veterinary treatment and rehoming.

Jeremiah rescued piglet

Jeremiah’s pneumonia was so severe that he was constantly spewing blood from his nose.

Jeremiah, as the young pig would come to be called, spent the next few hours being treated by a veterinarian who, despite his best efforts, did not believe the little piglet would pull through. In addition to having spent all winter in freezing temperatures without any bedding or protection against the cold, Jeremiah had been nearly starved to death. He was suffering from numerous critical conditions, including extreme anemia, and a long term case of untreated pneumonia that left his airways so severely scarred, blood spewed from his nose non-stop as he struggled to breathe. His body was covered in bruises and ulcers from being forced to constantly lie in ice, snow, mud, and his own urine and feces; his muscles had atrophied so badly that he could no longer walk.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this, hon, I love Indraloka and what they do. This is such an amazing story. I am so happy for Jeremiah and all who nursed him back to health and gave him a sanctuary for life.

    • My pleasure Stace. I meant to post this story last Thursday when Free From Harm first wrote about the it but I was too overwhelmed at work.

      This is such a great organization. I wish I could do this for a living. My calling in life is not to sit behind a desk. Oh well…

      🙂
