Help the pigs

Pigs at SeaWorld in California?

My first question was: Why? They were part of an animal entertainment show and were used when they were both young piglets. As they aged and grew larger they became more difficult to control and were no longer in the stage show. When I found out they were living in an 8 x 8 cemented room I didn't hesitate to say 'Yes -bring them here'.

Early in November, after a long trailer ride, Isabelle and Ramona are welcomed to the sanctuary. For the first time in their lives they have room to run, and they do!.
