Bentley, our tiniest and youngest rescued pig at EARTH, is very sick.
Bentley is the youngest and smallest rescue pig at EARTH Animal Sanctuary in Illinois, and earlier this spring the 9-month-old potbellied pig wound up fighting for his life in the animal hospital.
His human caretaker Corinne was by his side as Bentley fought a life-threatening case of meningitis, and the sanctuary uploaded a touching video of her gently rocking the sick pig as she sings him a quiet lullaby.
The video has since been seen over a million times — and donations poured in to help cover the cost of Bentley's medical care.
EARTH Sanctuary posted the happy news that Bentley was finally well enough to come home! For a time, doctors weren't sure if Bentley's illness would leave him blind — but happily, Bentley can see, run and play!
This was a miraculous recovery that is due in part to the loving, gentle support of his sanctuary family.
