At only a few days old the adorable spotted males were a mirror image of those stupid ads that you see from breeders trying to sell micro mini teacup piglets. I don't lie and of course these pictures can't lie, I am more furious than I was before this family came to Windy's; the teacup piglet ads are for babies that are only a few days old, no other form of selling anything, would ever allow such a thing!
PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PIGLET WHO WILL STAY S M A L L
Mama pig has done a wonderful job of mothering so far, especially considering she isn't even a year old.... but thru no fault of her own, the littlest piglet, the only girl, has had some real struggles with walking and nursing and growing. Gina Brown hooked her up with a wonderful specialist vet, Dr. Smee, who worked her magic and now, the tiny girl, Cherry is back with her family and showing incredible improvement!!!! Woo hoo!
(SAD update: Cherry was in the backyard at her home and the landscapers left the gate open, Cherry has been missing for many months...)
But... ONCE AGAIN, Windy's is tending to baby pigs who have no business being here! This pair of parent pigs, found stray walking on the city streets, should have NEVER been bred. While everyone loves these precious babies, PLEASE remember we have several other pigs JUST AS IN NEED of your love and affection....
my heart just aches for those forgotten pigs.
Windy's has been in Moapa Valley almost a year! The animals are happy and flourishing. We are in need of several shade trees and a pasture shelter for the horses. If you can help, send us an email. THANK YOU very much.
In the past, when I was younger and much more spontaneous, I donated money to all sorts of animal organizations, in many different states, never knowing enough about the local rescues and sanctuaries who were struggling in my very own community,
IF you give on a monthly basis or even just a few times a year to a non-profit organization, I plead with you to do some research and choose one here in our valley. GIVING WHERE YOU LIVE allows you to actually visit the organization and SEE your precious donations being used directly on the ones in NEED. Thank you < ( * @ * ) >

VOLUNTEER with your local rescues or FOSTER
You can help the animals and help yourself. Spending time with abandoned, neglected, and often abused animals, helps them to regain the trust of humans, creating a more adoptable pet... plus we think it makes YOU a better person, you will feel so good when you know you helped a pet find their way to a loving, forever home! CONSIDER BECOMING A FOSTER PARENT!!!!
TEACUP is part of a set of drinkware. It should NOT describe an animal. We must educate those people who go shopping for a piglet: MINI is description compared to the MUCH larger farm pigs... JUST like human babies, piglets need proper feed and care and NEED to grow into a healthy weight and size, some bigger, some smaller, but NONE are going to be TEACUP, NO healthy ones will.
Windy's Rescue is helping animals in any way we can. We urge families who need help with their pets, to consider every possible option to enable you to keep your pet. Pets KNOW their family, they KNOW who you are, and they do not want to leave you, THAT should matter to you and your family...
Work within your community and make a difference LOCALLY
