One reason education is such an important part of our mission is that it saves lives! Did you know that it is incredibly difficult to find safe forever homes for miniature pigs? There are so many needing help – we get requests every single day. When an easy solution can’t be found, the pigs are often dumped, abandoned or simply turned loose to fend for themselves. People give them away or sell them, to uncertain ends. People even decide to kill and eat them.
We spend a lot of time on pet retention, trying to create great forever homes for pigs who have families that love them, but may be struggling. We keep a lot of pigs from needing rescue this way. But we also know this won’t always work. So we help network those who can’t stay. Finding them new families or sanctuaries as appropriate. We try to say yes to as many as we can because we understand from the animal’s point of view, their life interest in living is equal to any other animal – including humans.
Our family is made up of many pigs that needed a second (or third, or fourth) chance. Your support keeps this work alive! As you scroll through their profiles, find one you like most and become their sponsor! That means your monthly donation will go directly to them.
Notice the colors? Everyone is an individual here at the Pig Preserve and free to live wherever they choose. We encourage everyone to develop their own relationships and the colors are the communities they develop on their own. Take a look at the different neighborhoods we have at the Pig Preserve here
