No Name Pigs Need Fresh Water

UPDATE: June 2019 – Earlier this year, the property at the northern end of No Name Cay (aka Piggyville) was sold. Craig Russell is no longer involved in caring for the pigs of No Name Cay.

If you’re in Abaco and headed to No Name Cay to visit the pigs of Piggyville, please bring water.

Abaco's No Name Cay Pigs Need Fresh Water

Craig Russell with one of the youngest residents of Piggyville.

Unfortunately, there’s no source of fresh water on the island (a fact evidently overlooked by those who released the pigs on No Name to fend for themselves.)

And while Green Turtle Cay’s Pig Whisperer, Craig Russell, visits twice weekly and brings as much water as his boat will hold, it just isn’t enough for the growing piggy population – especially with summer approaching.

Thanks to Craig’s dedication, and the generosity of all who contribute food or bring it directly to No Name Cay, the pigs seem to be getting enough food. But they’re desperate for water.

Craig says that he and other visitors to No Name often meet the pigs’ water containers completely dry.

Sometimes, he says, the pigs even refuse to eat until their water supply has been replenished and they’ve had a good, long drink.

If every vessel that visited No Name brought a gallon or two of fresh water, it would make a huge difference to the pigs’ water supply. Please help if you can.

On behalf of Craig, the residents of Piggyville and all who love them, thank you!
