Meet Peas and Carrots, a bonded pair of eight month-old pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! These two were rescued from a tragic hoarding situation in Michigan as a group of 15 pigs, but fortunately this pair is young enough that they have their whole lives to make happy memories with a loving, forever family and put on a healthy amount of weight. 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. Peas and Carrots have been spayed and neutered, respectively, and they are more than ready to find their forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Peas and Carrots, 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 pigs must have health certificates (Oinking Acres takes their pigs to Purdue Large Animal Hospital to have this done and receive the document).
Peas & Carrots are …
– sweet and warm up quickly after meeting new people.
– neutered and spayed, respectively.
