Meet Vern, a handsome five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Vern was surrendered to Evansville Animal Control before he found his way to the loving people at Oinking Acres, so it takes him time to build up his confidence with new people. Once you can get past Vern’s initial shyness, this 110-pound boy is the sweetest and most laid-back pig you could hope to meet! 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. Vern is neutered 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 Vern, please fill out an adoption application online. His 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).
Vern is …
– shy when meeting new people, but once he warms up he’s as sweet as can be.
