Rebecca and her siblings - Rita, Chichi, Kimbo Slice and Colleen were rescued when they were inside their mom's belly. In 2008, there were terrible storms in Iowa, resulting in horrific flooding. There were several factory farms in the path of the storm. Several sows escaped and managed to make it to higher ground. They survived, and around 70 were rescued. Almost all of these were pregnant. Among them was our Momma Janie. She was rescued and found a home with Ethan Brown (founder of Beyond Meat). When his company started to grow, he had to relocate to the west coast and this little family needed a new safe forever home. They have been with us for years now, and are still a bonded family unit. Momma Janie passed peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her kids in January 2018, and Colleen passed some years before of complications from a leg injury. The remaining kids are healthy and happy, and still spend all their time together.
