The Giant Pumpkin

Every day, we receive hundreds of pounds of day-old produce donated by two grocery stores. Yesterday, an employee at one notified us that a 60lb pumpkin had failed to sell and did we want it? Um, do pigs love food? Yes!

The Pumpkin
Abby, sanctuary supervisor and Louie, animal caregiver, took a picture with the giant gourd.

And then it was time to abandon the pumpkin to its fate.

Enjoy! The pigs and cattle sure did!

I love your blog and enjoyed your animal pictures. I especially liked the blog about "The Giant Pumpkin".

My blog is about my personal animal rescue mission, called "My DogPatch".

This summer I saved 19 feral cats by hand-raising them and placing them in forever homes. It makes me feel good to be able to make a difference, just like you must feel good about your work.

I live in Sydney Australia and look forward to receiving your newsletter about the goings on at your wonderful sanctuary. One day I hope to visit the USA and see the work you do first hand. The Pumpkin story especially made me smile.
