As our rescue mission continues in Oakville, Iowa we wanted to give you a glimpse into the incredible efforts of the crew on the ground by sharing this video from one of our coalition partners, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), narrated by Dick Green – IFAW disaster relief manager and the incident commander of our team. Watch out for Farm Sanctuary’s very own Chuck Pappas and Dan D’Eramo, as they work with IFAW, AHA, and ARL-Boston workers to secure and load stranded pigs onto a trailer for transport off the levee!



Help Farm Sanctuary continue our rescue efforts in the Midwest by making a donation to our Emergency Rescue Fund at farmsanctuary.org or by calling 607-583-2225. Or, if you or someone you know can adopt a rescued pig into your home, please contact shelter@farmsanctuary.org or 607-583-2225 ext. 223.

Thank you for saving these pigs. While no pig deserves to live their brief lifespan in a CAFO, these pigs who managed to escape surely deserve a better life now. The good news may be that millions of people have seen the news photographs of pigs desperately trying to swim to safety...maybe a few of those people we realize that bacon isn't worth the suffering it causes.

I made a donation to support your efforts.
