We are pleased to report on a few more happy endings that have recently unfolded for 10 of the Iowa pigs who traveled to their new adoptive homes over the past few weeks. On October 8, Gwen, Sweet Pea, Cherry, and seven other youngsters arrived at Lost Dog Ranch in Sumerduck, Virginia, where they have joined a whole family of other rescued animals. Lost Dog volunteer and former Farm Sanctuary intern, Sarah Barnett, sent along these great photos of her newest friends. Here they are having a ball, wallowing in the mud and running through the trees!

Ten more of the pigs, among them our beloved Rosebud and her seven growing piglets, reached the end of their cross country trek when they arrived at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary in beautiful Scio, Oregon on October 18. Read more about the adoption in an article from the Albany Democrat Herald, and see them on KEZI 9 ABC News. The pigs’ new guardian, Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary President Wayne Geiger, was also kind enough to send the photos below. With big tree-lined pastures to explore and thick mounds of straw to nest and rest in, these pigs couldn’t be happier!
