Local humane society collected donations to help rescued pigs

(WBNG) — The Delaware Valley Humane Society in Sidney made is on a mission to help four pigs that were recently rescued from horrible conditions in Otsego County earlier this month.

Four large pigs were found in horrible conditions in Morris. One man has been charged in the case.

“We felt compelled to help because it is our job working at the humane society to be part of the solution and to be proactive,” said Delaware Valley Humane Society shelter manager Erin Insinga.

Insinga asked the community to gather up donations of food to send to the Southern New York Pig Rescue, where the pigs are currently.

Among the many people and farmers in the area who wanted to help includes Erin Johnson, co-owner of Covered Bridge Farm Market in Unadilla.

“The welfare of animals is our number one priority here,” said Johnson. “So to see animals in that kind of condition and to know that we had stuff available to help out there was no reason to not to.”

Johnson donated peppers, tomatoes and pumpkins.

“I just hope that they get healthier, continue to heal, and go to good homes eventually,” she added.

The owner of Southern New York Pig Rescue says the four-legged pals’ condition have improved immensely in one week.

The pigs sport new names, Katniss, Prim, Rue and George.

Donations were sent to the rescue Wednesday morning.
