We've all heard of stray dogs, stray cats, even stray hedgehogs... But stray piggies? Our hearts are officially broken.

Leitrim Animal Welfare Centre put up a post on their Facebook page yesterday about two little pigs who were picked up by the dog warden on Dowra road, Co Leitrim. 

They're currently in the pound (yikes) but can't stay there for much longer, so the animal centre are desperately trying to find these two cuties either a foster or a permanent home.

How could anyone resist?


Pigs make brilliant pets if you have the space and time to look after them - they can be trained to walk on a lead, will cuddle up against you and will quickly get attached to their human families.

They can also live up to 15 years, so if make sure you're in it for the long haul if you think you'll be able to save these two dotes!

Contact Leitrim Animal Centre on (071) 964 8300 and help save these pig's bacon (that pun just had to be made - forgive us)
