With the increasing number of unwanted potbelly pigs in California, our rescues and sanctuaries are full and overflowing. The shelters are euthanizing at alarming rates and our pig owners are being faced with unthinkable decisions when surrending these animals. In an attempt to provide a safe place for people to rehome their pigs, a group of animal advocates with a passion for these amazing creatures came together to form Adopt a Pig California. We are the last hope for some and the only hope for others.
We know rehoming your pig can be a very difficult decision for your entire family. At Adopt a Pig, we do not judge - you will find the support and assistance you require to make the best choices for your family and your pig. We will guide and educate each person through their individual situation and take all the precautions necessary to ensure your pig has the best chance for wellness, safety and happiness at his/her forever home.
Are you ready to become a pig parent? Or perhaps you'd just like to foster a pig in need? We have many pigs waiting for safe and happy homes with a family to call their own. All adopters/fosters must complete an application, reference checks, home check, vet availability and phone interview. Please make sure to educate yourself about life with a pig before you make the commitment to bring one home. Adopt a Pig will be an available support for the entirety of your pigs life. However, we strongly encourage you to research the needs and requirements to keep your pig happy, healthy and well adjusted.
