Circle of Compassion--Pigs

by Indraloka Animal Sanctuary

Indraloka's 12 pigs are a mix of elderly and young farm and potbellied pigs.  Each has his or her own unique story.  But perhaps the most memorable and exciting is that of Eddie Traffic.  Eddie jumped off a truck headed for slaughter two days before Christmas. When he jumped, he was in the middle of traffic on a busy New Jersey Highway. A kind truck driver from a few cars back pulled over and blocked Eddie from traffic with his truck. He sat in heavy traffic for several hours until another truck came to take him to a farm, temporarily. Meanwhile, Farm Sanctuary was contacted about taking Eddie. They decided they couldn’t take him and called us to take him instead. We agreed. A few days later another kind individual offered to transport Eddie from his temporary home to Indraloka. 

Ever since Eddie arrived he has been quite the adventurous individual. He is very energetic and full of life, and he loves absolutely everyone. He is best friends with Jeremiah. Eddie’s favorite treat is strawberries. He enjoys his days wallowing in the mud with his brothers, grazing on grass, napping, and rooting. Eddie is also the star of his own major motion film, Truckin’, which follows his story from the highway to Indraloka. Truckin’ was filmed and directed by Indraloka’s Creative Director, Johnny Braz. He has his own Facebook page, too!

Each pig cost $3,566 every year in food, veterinary care and a well kept home.  Many of them experience health challenges and complications from being raised for slaughter.  But all of them are friendly, intelligent and happy to meet new people.  Will you join us by joining their Circle of Compassion or becoming a Lifeline Sponsor?
