From Suffering to Sanctuary
Apples arrived at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary on May 26th.
Apples ended up at the Santa Cruz Animal Shelter and was there for almost 6 months – no one came forward to adopt him. CAPE was contacted and we knew Apples was destined to be a part of the CAPE family. We also knew that transporting a 500+ lb. pig from Santa Cruz to Grass Valley was going to be a challenge. It did not take long for some amazing people to step up to help this amazing pig find a safe ride to his new home!
According to the manager of the shelter, Apples is extremely friendly, comes when he’s called, and enjoys playing with toys. At the sanctuary, he has a 5-acre pasture to roam with other pigs and goats, plenty of healthy food and a lot of TLC! Apples also enjoys hanging out by the chicken coops.
“"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
