Elmo the Pig


Elmo is a pig that resided at Longstreet Farms in Holmdel, NJ. Longstreet Farms is a county park, funded by taxpayers. Although many residents visit Longstreet Farms and bring their children to pet and feed the animals there, many do not understand that when these animals are no longer of any use to the farm, they are sent off to slaughter.

Elmo could no longer be used for breeding, so he was scheduled to go to a slaughter house. Through fast communication, many animal lovers showed up at Longstreet Farms in the rain to protest this friendly hog, who was used to being handled by people all his life, being sent off to be killed. It worked. Elmo is now happily living in a farm area behind our Tinton Falls shelter, grateful to be alive and with people who care. You can show you care, too, and sponsor Elmo!
