Weak Little Calf Was On Death’s Doorstep, But This Baby Pig Refused To Give Up On Him

Bunny, the calf, had been abused and had health problems and was virtually at death’s door. Bunny arrived at the Sugarshine Farm Sanctuary just before he was about to be slaughtered.

Kelly Nelder picked him up and also rescued three piglets, one was named Baby. The woman who gave up the animals said she couldn’t feed them. Bunny lived indoors because he was so thin and weak.

Nelder was trying to nurse him back to health. One morning, Baby, the piglet, pushed her way into the room where Bunny was being kept. Baby went right over to Bunny and started to nuzzle his face with her snout.

Nelder finally decided to let Baby and Bunny stay together. Despite the extra love, Bunny’s health got worse.

Nelder rushed him to the vet after he came down with pneumonia and was touch and go, even on medication. Bunny had trouble swallowing and couldn’t stand up to relieve himself.

Thanks to the love and support from Baby and Nelder, Bunny is on the road to recovery!
