For the story: On the Death of Pigs.

Seeing a need for more animal rescue than we, ourselves, alone, can do with our private rescue, my husband and I are branching out into our neighborhood here in the gorgeous Oklahoma countryside. We are trying to find neighbors to join us in giving certain special animals, destined to slaughter, a forever home in their pastures.

We call oursevles Rancho San Patricio Private Animal Rescue. We are self-funded, and we only ask for people who can likewise afford to help, to take an animal faced with death, and give him a home.

This is our own neighbrhood democray - an animal rescue effort, at its very basic and grass roots level. This photo and the others in this group should clearly show WHY we do this. If not, I am a poor photographer, afterall, and these images are worthless.

These pigs are headed to slaughter, and these photos are their portraits on their last day on earth. May the photos honor, may the pigs go peacefully, intelligence and everything.

God Speed.
