Meet Momma, a sweet three year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Poor Momma was rescued from a tragic hoarding situation in Michigan as a group of 15 pigs, but it hasn’t taken away her sweet personality. She can be a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly, especially when there are treats involved! Momma could make a great house pig with the patience and training, but she would also be perfectly happy being an outdoor pig! 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. Momma will be spayed on the 25th, is microchipped and is more than ready to find her forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Momma, 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).
Momma is ….
