Arthur is one of our big boys from the Indy Pig Rescue case we worked on over the summer of 2019, with a handful of other non-profit pig rescues and sanctuaries across the country. These boys suffered for years, without shelter, clean drinking water or consistent food, and without vet care spays/neuters. Their group of 67 pigs were scheduled to be euthanized on June 03, 2019, as part of a criminal abuse case in Indiana – but we came together with these other orgs and got them out of there in time to save their lives and begin their rehabilitation. Our group of 14 arrived to the Kansas City area on July 4th, 2019 and they have come so SO far. Arthur was the least trust, obviously the elder, the leader, the protector. We used to not be able to allow visitors into his pen, and could not do chores with our backs turned to him. He didn’t trust us, and we couldn’t blame him. Late Fall 2019, Arthur and the other big boys remaining for their case moved to our Winston MO foster home, where they settled in for the winter and surprised us by becoming the sweetest and most gentle pigs in our program.
