Oink—Two Piglets Abandoned at the ASPCA

Friday, January 4, 2013 - 1:30pm

Holy moly, cuteness! Imagine our surprise when ASPCA staffers found two little piglets abandoned outside our Spay/Neuter Clinic in Queens, New York. The pot-bellied duo was locked inside a cat carrier left outside the building’s garage entrance. We immediately called our friends at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary to see if they could lend a hand.

“We were happy to help,” says Sheila Hyslop, Woodstock’s sanctuary manager. “The boy, whom we named Humpty, was just neutered, and his sister, Dena, was given a clean bill of health, too.”

The sanctuary is following up with families who have expressed interest in adopting the butterballs and will be conducting site visits to check out possible homes.  

“As I'm sure you can imagine, these babies are charming everyone they meet,” Hyslop tells us with a chuckle. “And, if possible, they seem to be getting cuter every day!”

Check out our special photo album for more adorable pictures of Humpty and Dena!

By the way, abandoning animals is dangerous and never OK. Check out our tips on how to properly re-home a pet in the event you cannot possibly care for him or her.

to the people that left the piggies - thank you for doing that for whatever reason, some people do terrible things to animals because they cant keep them but you did the right thing


well of course taking into account that aspca said its not ok but if you have no other option, leaving them and letting someone know or where they can be safely found is better than the horror stories we hear about when people dont do that...


bacon!!!!! ^^


These pigs are adorable but whoever left them should have arranged for the piglets to go to the ASPCA safly
