When the workers at Ziggy’s Animal Refuge heard about her, they knew she desperately needed assistance to lose weight for survival. But by the time they arrived at the backyard, she had resigned herself to perishing in the dirt. She refused to interact with the rescuers because of her obvious lack of trust, which only made their job tougher.

The rescuers eventually bribed Mary Leigh with a trail of vanilla wafers that led to the rescue truck! Once she was loaded up, they drove her to the sanctuary that sheltered many other special needs farm animals like her. They arranged a special solitary home for her filled with all sorts of luxuries just to make her feel safe and comfortable.

Mary Leigh was not just painfully overweight, but also repulsed by healthy food. She straight up refused to snack on salads and veggies, and the rescuers wondered how to work with her sensitivity and lack of motivation.
