Meet Nelly, a very well-behaved five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! In Nelly’s previous life she was an indoor pig and needs to remain an indoor pig, but no worries … according to Oinking Acres, she would be blissfully happy just eating vanilla wafers from your hand all day! Nelly is a big girl at 150 pounds, but she just wants to lay around and be loved and spoiled! 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. Nelly is spayed and 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 Nelly, 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).
Nelly is …
– extremely well-behaved and enjoys eating vanilla wafers!
– needing to remain an indoor pig.
