Meet Cricket, a beautiful three year-old 65-pound female pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Cricket was pulled from a Rushville shelter after her owners were unable to continue to care for her, but this is one sweet pig that loves people and can’t wait to find her forever family! Cricket used to be an inside pig and is litter-box trained, so she would more than likely thrive being a spoiled indoor pig again. 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. This pretty girl has been spayed and microchipped and is more than ready to find his forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Cricket, please fill out an adoption application online. Her adoption fee is $150, though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $100 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).
Cricket is …
– very friendly and loves to be with people!
– litter-box trained and would thrive as a spoiled indoor pig.
