Most piglets grow up in dark, dirty and cramped conditions on factory farms where they are slaughtered for pork at just three to six months old.
They never get to experience the joys of piglethood, which involves play fighting, mudbathing, and snuggling up to mom, and their lives are hidden from the public, which means very few people make the connection that these intelligent, loving and incredible individuals want to live and donít want to end up on someoneís plate.
Everyone should have the opportunity to witness piglets living free and happy, so get ready to meet some of the cutest little piggies in the whole world:
