VernonVernon – Safe at Happy Trails

 Happy Trails now has Vernon at the sanctuary and he is settling in well.  Despite his serious abuse, this pig has nothing but love to give and a willingness to trust his humans.  We owe it to him to spread the word of his abuse and his rescue.  As hard as it is to view the painful wounds and read the violent story, this is the reality.  Abusers of animals are abusers….  This is another example of animal abuse being directly related to other violent crimes such as domestic violence, drugs and child abuse.  Please read the story of Vernon the potbelly pig, share with your friends and family, and if you are able, donate to the care of Vernon and the other rescued farm animals such as Vernon who receive the rehabilitation they need at Happy Trails.
