Jellybean (Jelly)

Jelly came into rescue with Anthony Edwards and Peanut. He is a retired show pig whose stud career has ended. He is about 14 months old. When you hold him, you can see a small hole in his ear where his tag used to be (required for showing). Jelly had the start of an abscess when he arrived and is undergoing treatment for it. He has had surgery to remove the abscess and is currently in antibiotics. The wound has scabbed over and is slowly healing. Jelly is a laidback piggy, but has an operatic voice when it comes to letting you know he wants his veggies. He likes to be held and hand fed carrots. He enjoys a small range of veggies (spring mix, carrot, green peppers, kale, spinach, cucumber, celery and dandelion greens). He will not eat coloured food (no coloured peppers of fruits) and ignores the apple if you give it to him. He loves his Oxbox Vitamin C cookies. Hay is the best thing in the world and he really chows down on it (morning and night, with veggies at dinner time). He has been fostered in a home with cats (cats will sit on top of the cage and he’s not bothered by it) and 2 small dogs and doesn’t react to barking. He came from a home with young children and was previously a singleton. He did not accept a cage mate and will need to be in his own cage. He is fine next to another piggy who he can hear and smell, but cannot be in the same cage with another boar. If he were neutered, he would love a wife.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
