Farm Sanctuary is a place of healing, love, and happiness for both our animal
residents and our human guests. With this canvas featuring a representation of
Johnny, you can bring the Farm back home with you!
In California, it is
unfortunately common for people to raise animals on their private properties for
slaughter. At many of these “backyard butcheries”, ,” animals are kept in horrid
conditions, are mistreated, and are valued for their commodities instead of the
beautiful individuals that they are. Johnny was one such being, and was kept
without food, water, or basic care. During his first six months of life he knew
nothing but cruelty. After being rescued and brought to Farm Sanctuary’s
Southern California shelter, however, he was able to exhibit the natural
behaviors that pigs are born to express.
Pigs sleep over 18 hours per day, and
at his new home Johnny was finally able to enjoy peaceful naps in his clean,
spacious barn. Johnny now lives at our Northern California shelter, where he
will continue to be loved and respected as someone, not something.
