Lucy: A piglet.
Only four months old, Lucy has been through a lot already. 

It seems she escaped from a farm auction, where piglets as young as 2-3 days old are sold for a few dollars.

Running loose, she was picked up by an animal control agency. The agency then auctioned off Lucy to the highest bidder. As legal animal caretakers, the agency should have been trying to find a permanent home for her. 

Sadly, the practice of auctioning off farmed animals instead of adopting them out is common.

Instead, the animal control agency was only interested in getting the highest fee for her. They refused offers from animal sanctuaries for being too low. A bidding war ensued between sanctuaries - all of whom were only interested in saving her life. 

Lucy was eventually adopted by the Animal Place in Grass Valley, CA.
