An animal hoarding situation in Upstate New York turned into what one rescue is calling a "breeding nightmare." Eastern Snouts Adoption and Rehoming is a "registered 501(c)3 nonprofit, offering adoption services as well as emergency funding & education" according to their Facebook page. 

This week the rehoming agency shared an urgent case out of Upstate, NY.

In a statement posted to Facebook, they explain:

"Upstate hoarding case”- Huge case that turned into a breeding nightmare. There are many piglets that are spayed/neutered, different sized adults, 5 very pregnant females. All mini pigs"

Eastern Snouts is looking to rehome 59 pigs and piglets adding "20 piglets likely under 1 year, many adults. Some are fixed, some are not." The Facebook post explains that there are other animals on the Upstate, NY property looking to be rehomed including goats, sheep, and cows.

Some houses that have been left to ruin can seem impossible to restore but the home at 345 Tow Path Road still seems to have great bones. It is also in a great location if you are looking for open space and some Hudosn Valley history. You must take a look at Turner's Farm.
