HOUSTON — Eight adorable newborns are bringing a lot of smiles to workers and volunteers at the Houston SPCA.
They welcomed two litters of piglets in less than a week and named them Gizmo, Sweetie, Piggie, Suey, Hamlet, Goonie, Tweetie and Berta.
The piggies' pregnant mamas were rescued from a north Houston property in August along with three sheep and three lambs. Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigators and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 said the animals were found emaciated with no food or water.
They're all getting plenty of TLC now and even got to pig out on a "‘fruitcuterie" board made with grapes, apples, bananas and strawberries to celebrate all the new babies. No doubt, they squealed with delight.
Once the piglets are weened and a little bit older they'll be available for adoption along with the other rescued farm animals.
