Meet Helga, an adorable four year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Poor Helga was a victim of a terrible neglect case and, because of that, is skittish when meeting new people up close. She’s very gentle when taking treats and always comes up to the fence to greet visitors to the farm, so once you’ve earned her love and trust, Helga is your girl! Are you the loving family that can help this incredibly sweet girl come out of her shell and believe in forever? 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. Helga 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 Helga, 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).
Helga is …
– a sweet girl who was a victim of terrible neglect in the past and tends to be skittish with strangers on first meetings.
