She said they’re fundraising to expand the sanctuary’s pig area to accommodate Grover and future pig rescues.
Vickery said it’s imperative that small New England farms work together to promote consumer awareness, animal welfare and secure the agricultural way of life the region has enjoyed for generations.
“The time to act is now and in the case of Grover, that action will not only save his life, but could make an impact that goes beyond one animal, two businesses and a few people blazing a trail,” Vickery said. “We have no doubt that Grover is an ambassador for meat pigs everywhere and are hopeful that his pardon will stimulate thought and conversation among many.”
She’s hopeful the collaboration with the Gilford farm stand will “stimulate thought and conversation” between other sanctuaries and farms.
