Pet Project: This Little Piggy


This little piggy went to Iona.

Police were called Sunday with a report of “a pig on North Avenue.”

The New Rochelle Humane Society responded, and found this pig in the backyard of a fraternity across the street from Iona College on North Avenue.



“A group of students claimed the pig ‘just wandered into their yard’ a few days prior”, says NRHS Shelter Director Dana Rocco. “They were feeding it Cheerios. At least it was the unsugared type.”

The students also just happened to have a crate the right size for him, and a name: Payton.

Payton is now hanging out at the NRHS Shelter, where we photographed him. The staff is in contact with Farm Sanctuary, which will find it a more appropriate home. We are told he’s a pot bellied pig. Aw.

Now I want him.



We’ll alternate daily between animals for adoption and your fun or interesting animal and pet photos.  Just email with ‘Pet Project’ in the subject and include the name of your pet and your town. Or upload your photos to the looppool on flickr .
