Smart Pig Escapes Deadly Flood And Finds The Best Family He Could.

As an avid animal lover, Walls didn’t want to see any animal suffer needlessly, so he did what he could.

Sadly, Walls wasn’t allowed to keep Flo on the property, so he and his mom decided to come up with an alternate solution. They reached out to Ziggy’s Refuge Farm Sanctuary in Providence, North Carolina. That’s where sanctuary co-founders, Kristin Hartness and Jay Yontz, agreed to take the pig in.

The problem was that Hartness and Yontz couldn’t get to the pig because all the roads were closed.

Hartness managed to find a family in the area who could look after Flo until they arrived to pick the pig up. The local family also scrambled to find a vehicle so they could transport Flo safely. Meanwhile, Walls remained by Flo’s side in the front yard.

Walls had formed a bond with Flo, and he would talk to him and rub his belly while they both waited.

Over a period of three or four days, Walls claimed that he learned more about pigs than he ever had in his whole life. The temporary family arrived at Wall’s home around midnight, but the vehicle they were expecting never came.

The family managed to care for Flo until Hartness and Yontz were able to pick him up and take him to the sanctuary. There, Flo won everyone over with his goofy and lovable attitude. But Flo was having trouble breathing and he had a fever, so Hartness and Yontz took him to a vet.

Flo had a rough night, but the following day, he was running in the yard as happy as he could be.

Hartness and Yontz have rescued other pigs from factory farms, and they claim that the pigs are always grateful for their second chance. Meanwhile, Walls formed such a strong bond with Flo that he’s planning to visit him at Ziggy’s Refuge Farm Sanctuary very soon.
