Good news-- I have found a farm for them to live on and I could be their new mom for the rest of their years!!
Bad news-- I don't have enough money to save them. The farm wants me to buy them for the same price as if they were slaughtered, called "hanging weight." This is $7 per pound.
Cost of 2 pigs: $1,600
Food: $200 (to start)
Harnesses & Leashes: $75
Fence & shelter maintenance: $350
Food & water trough: $75
Vet visit: ~$200
Please help me save these beautiful animals!
