Aww I love the photo of Petunia with her Raccoon dolly! Super cute! It reminds me so much of the Australian movie 'Babe'. If you haven't seen it, i'm sure you'll loooove it!! Ahh to be back on the farm again!! Thanks so much for the story, hehe cant wait to show my sister!

We are amazed at the work you have done, are doing, and will continue to do in the future. We've added a link to Farm Sanctuary on our blog in hopes to direct more traffic your way. Good luck and thank you very much!!


Thank you Farm Santuary!! This story of Petunia made me cry, I only wish I was there to see her, touch her, and play with her. What an amazing little girl she is. And what an amazing job you are doing. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Keep up the wonderful work.

Wow..!! Piglet is looking so cute and innocent....The very first pic describes how it really looks...In the first pic it looks that Piglet is giving a huge smile..

Omg! I especially love the last picture of her sleeping with her doll! Not that my family and I need reconfirmation to stay vegan but I love love seeing these animals so happy and so at home.


Thank you dear little Petunia, and all the animals at Farm Sanctuary, for opening our hearts and giving us inspiration to be more kind and compassionate human beings. You are so precious and sweet and strong, and I'm so happy you have been rescued by this wonderful, caring organization. I have not eaten pork, or veal, for many years, and never will again, and very rarely have beef. But I do still eat fish and humanely raised chicken. Maybe one day I will be able to be completely vegetarian. Blessings to all.

I can't wait to take my family to the farm sanctuary in NY! What a precious baby!

I 100% - no 1000% with all the above comments. I just was informed about your site this afternoon. God bless you for all you do. We all must help, b/c it surely appears there are more callous people who put up with the animal violence on today's farms.


What a great story. Yey Petunia! Go Vegans! ;)

Graceful Blessings to all


Dena Picken

thank you again Farm Sanctuary!!

Thomas Williams

I'm going vegetarian as of today as a tribute to the spirit of this amazing pig. Thank you Petunia for showing me the way!


What a sweetie! I can't wait to see her in person when the weather gets a little better and she gets a little bigger and healthier.

Way to go!

This story is a testament to the value of a life. Petunia's life matters, as do the lives of all the animals that are subjected to the barbaric and brutal factory farming system. I'm happy for Petunia that many people cared enough to recognize her will to live, and that she will have a nice home at Farm Sanctuary.

wish I were there to hold her

Thank you so much for your noble work,I´m a vegetarian Taoist and though not all Taoists are veggies, I can tell you that at least one master in mainland China,the great Wang Liping , has amazing cases to tell of the spiritual evolution of non-humans ,how even a little turtel can practice inner alchemy.
So,non-humans have a soul too and farm animals can be quite evolved !


This little piglet is what Farm Sanctuary is all about. Love.
Keep us posted on her progress!


This lovely story touched my heart. I am still crying. This is why I love you. Your care and commitment have enriched all lives!


Thank you Farm Sanctuary!


Wowl She's adorable. I hope she finds a great home and some companionship
