Scroggie's grandfather agreed to release Winnie - for a price. He said that Scroggie had to buy Winnie's freedom for market value, so she saved up $350 to rescue her.
Finally, at the end of the summer, Winnie got a ride from a volunteer who agreed to drive the pig the four hours to her new forever home, where she would get to live out her whole long life.
And Winnie didn't have to ride alone.
"Lindsay insisted that she jump in with them to make sure that Winnie was OK," Carrie MacInnis, the owner of the sanctuary, told The Dodo. "Lindsay is a very special soul. She so deserves recognition for her choice to save Winnie."
