Pet Project: This Little Piggy

Print

 

This little piggy went to Iona.

Police were called Sunday with a report of “a pig on North Avenue.”

The New Rochelle Humane Society responded, and found this pig in the backyard of a fraternity across the street from Iona College on North Avenue.

 

 

“A group of students claimed the pig ‘just wandered into their yard’ a few days prior”, says NRHS Shelter Director Dana Rocco. “They were feeding it Cheerios. At least it was the unsugared type.”

The students also just happened to have a crate the right size for him, and a name: Payton.

Payton is now hanging out at the NRHS Shelter, where we photographed him. The staff is in contact with Farm Sanctuary, which will find it a more appropriate home. We are told he’s a pot bellied pig. Aw.

Now I want him.

 

 

We’ll alternate daily between animals for adoption and your fun or interesting animal and pet photos.  Just email editor@theloopny.com with ‘Pet Project’ in the subject and include the name of your pet and your town. Or upload your photos to the looppool on flickr .
