Not-so little piggies need veggies

SPOKANE, Wash - Eight pigs seized from a Spokane County farm last week will soon go up for adoption, but first, they need donations from the community to get healthy.

The pigs, each weighing about 600 pounds, were among dozens of animals seized last week. SCRAPS says they were malnourished and living in filthy conditions.

Before they're ready for adoption, SCRAPS says the pigs need donations of vegetables like cabbage, carrots, squash, apples and pumpkins.

"If people are replacing their fall decorative pumpkins with Christmas holly, we'd like them to consider bringing them down to SCRAPS," said SCRAPS Executive Director Nancy Hill. "Please make sure they are still edible and we will take them to the pigs for feed."

Anyone interested in adopting the pigs can leave their name, address and phone number at the front desk at SCRAPS. Potential owners will be contacted when the animals are ready.

SCRAPS is located at 6815 E. Trent Avenue in Spokane Valley.
