Meet Nanny and Robin, a bonded mother/son pair of pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Nanny is approximately five or six years old and came to the sanctuary pregnant with her darling boy, Robin, who was born November 8, 2018, after being rescued from a terrible hoarding situation involving 17 pigs (yes, 17). These two are so incredibly sweet and they absolutely adore treats and enjoy free-roaming around the farm. Pot-bellied pigs are similar to dogs in the sense that they can be house-trained, leash-trained and can learn tricks, but they’re also very stubborn and sensitive. The average lifespan of a pot-bellied pig is anywhere from 12 to 20 years and if you put in the time and love with your little oinker, you’ll have the undying love and loyalty of your pig. These precious little piggies have been spayed and neutered (respectively), microchipped and are more than ready to find their forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Nanny and Robin, please fill out an adoption application online. Their adoption fee is $275, though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $100 per pig and your pig must have a health certificate (Oinking Acres takes their pigs to Purdue Large Animal Hospital to have this done and receive the document).
