Shop Selling Piglet for 'Christmas Dinner.' Rescuer Changes Entire Life To Save It

Share

Having a pig for a pet has become an ongoing trend in recent years. Teacup pigs are extremely popular, mostly because they’re so small.

After all, no one wants a full sized pig for a pet, right? Wilbur and Babe are cute in their respective films, but does anyone really care for a pig when they’re not that cuddly cute pink color we see on screen?

It would appear so. Hope Sutton fell in love with a pig named Sunday when he was just a piglet. And her love has only grown the bigger he’s gotten.

When Sunday was only 3 weeks old, he was being held in a tiny cage inside a shop that was selling him for “Christmas Dinner.”

Hope Sutton would have none of it. “My daughter took a photo of him and sent it to me,” Hope shared in a video posted on The Dodo Facebook page.

In the video she shared that a pig was never her idea of her dream pet. But Hope couldn’t let Sunday be led to the slaughter.



The bigger Sunday grew, the less he fit into Hope’s lifestyle. Something had to change. Too heavy to lift or even put in her car, Sunday was quickly outgrowing his surroundings.

But instead of getting rid of him, Hope decided to alter her life to fit into Sunday’s. If she had stayed in town, Hope would have been forced to give Sunday away.

So she moved her family to the country in Gloucester, Australia, to a farm where Sunday could have other animals to play and socialize with.

Have you rescued an animal in need?

Sunday is the big man on the farm, but his goat friends are just as bossy, Hope shared with The Dodo.

Unfortunately, expenses to keep Sunday and the farm have become quite the financial burden. A GoFundMe campaign is open for anyone who wishes to help this family with these expenses.

“We are so humbly grateful to The Dodo for sharing our past videos and creating an update video on Sunday’s life,” the GoFundMe page reads. “Your kind contributions to Sunday and his brothers and sisters will be very [much] appreciated.”

According to the campaign post, Australia is currently experiencing a drought. Because Hope is not a real farmer, she does not qualify to receive help from the government.

You can keep up with Sunday and Hope by following them on their page “Sunday ‘the Vegan Great’” on Facebook.
