Birth date: 25 May 2013
Rescue date: 25 May 2020
George is a 7 year old pig, who had been livening one a property in Moruya before the fires came and destroyed it, along with all of the fencing.
With nowhere safe to stay, George moved to a small beachside backyard whilst we prepared space to take him in.
Thanks to everyone who contributed, we were able to fund construction of a new paddock for George, and so we journeyed down the Clyde mountain, through kilometres of fire ravaged bush land that is starting to show signs of regeneration.
We thank everyone who donated to bring George to sanctuary, and would like to give a special shout out of thanks to some of our south coast crew, Mark and Maryke, for helping us with the rescue mission to collect George.
George now lives with another shy pig, Minnie.
Help Protect Pigs
Pigs are the flagship species for Little Oak – indeed it was a pig who inspired us to start the sanctuary and of all animals, they hold a very special significance to us. Pigs are amazing beings, they are smart, funny characters, sadly we rarely get to see them as the individuals they are. Today, over 5 million pigs are confined in sheds across the country each year. Their lives are short and filled with suffering - but it doesn't have to be this way.
When you sponsor a pig you will be helping protect pigs. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual pigs and the plight of their kind across the nation.
Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about pigs through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the pigs at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
