“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not. ” ~ Pablo Picasso
Birth Date: 12 Nov 2013 Arrival: 12 Mar 2014
A lost little piggy found his way to Blacktown Pound, NSW. Lost but not one to let a chance to befriend some people go past, this little guy won the heart of the staff and several rescue groups who came to visit the pound.
It was through them that we heard of his plight, and welcomed him as a new member of the Little Oak family.
When he arrived, Pablo was 1/10th of the size of Dr Seuss or Heavenly Hiraani Tiger piggy! Now Pablo has grown to around 150kg, a typical size for a 'miniature pig' in Australia.
Pablo is best friends with Lucy pig but shares a paddock with Albert Sweinstein, Polly Piggins, Lucy and Patsy Swine. An amiable fellow, he gets along with everyone!
Pablo is a very affectionate, charming young man - he will leave his mark on your heart!
You can sponsor Pablo and his friends below.
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.
