The Story of Lisa

Lisa is a very unusual pig, as the farmer who hoped to use her to make a profit soon discovered. During one too many escapes from what seemed her certain destiny, she was finally surrendered to the Whatcom Humane Society in Bellingham, Washington Everyone from the pet psychic to the pig doctor puzzled over what to do with a very extraordinary and very large porker looking for her chance to be a swine sensation. Pigmalion is a story of one pig's journey of transformation from potential pork chop to prima donna and the lives she's touched along the way. Lisa now lives at Sanctuary One, a nonprofit care farm located in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon where people, animals, and the earth work together for mutual healing.
