Melissa Foley runs a farm animal rescue operation in central Alberta and is collecting used pumpkins to feed her pigs.

The F.A.R.R.M. sanctuary has been set up near Wetaskiwin and accepts surrendered and abused farm animals. They offer care and space for the sick and injured, as well as an adoptions centre.

Providing food for the animals can be big challenge, and it seems that pumpkins are a perfect produce for potbelly pigs.

The pumpkin donation collection centre is now closed.

Monetary donations can be made through the organization's website.
