Piglets Found Wandering In Lowell Now Up For Adoption

METHUEN (CBS) – Two pigs found wandering on the streets of Lowell earlier this year are now up for adoption.

Four-month-olds “George” and “Harriet” have been recovering on the MSPCA Nevins Farm since they were found January 24.

No one has stepped forward to claim the pigs.

When they were found they were underweight and had very patchy skin, making it difficult for them to stay warm. Since then, their health has improved.

MSPCA officials say they realized the two had a close bond when Harriet was to be spayed.

The Nevins Farm team says George was allowed in the surgery suite and stayed by Harriet’s side during her recovery.

The MSPCA is hoping to find a home from them with a large outdoor space and a sturdy shelter to stay safe from the elements.
