She Was Too Cute to Eat, Even at 670 Pounds

This pygmy piglet turned out to be a full-size commercial pig.  What were they to do now?

When Ester the pig was adopted by Steve and Derek they thought she was a pygmy piglet but after two years she was a 670 pound house pet.  She changed their lives as their love and friendship grew along with her.

When they realized how intelligent and friendly Esther was (pigs are as smart as dogs, and considered by many to be cleaner animals), they couldn’t stomach the idea that they were eating other pigs that were just as smart and friendly, so they became vegans. They were so deeply affected by their life with Esther, in fact, that they were inspired to devote their loves to building an animal shelter.

Read on between the photos for more of Ester.

When Ester came home she was 3 pounds.  So cute!!


She is just one of the friendly gang.  Wonderfully getting along with the other pets.

 Ester, 670 pounds and still so cute!!


Ester is so lovely we would have done one of the same things, become vegan.  Steve and Derek have already raise thousands of dollars for their Ester inspired animal shelter.  Best of life to one ‘big’ happy family!!
