Meet Zippy!

Meet Zippy, a curious pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Zippy is a young boy and can be very shy and skittish at first meeting, but once he warms up to you he loves the attention and is very gentle at taking treats from your hand. Most of the other piglets of his litter have been adopted, so now it’s Zippy’s turn! 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. Zippy 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 Zippy, 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).

Zippy is …
– a curious and shy boy who needs time to warm up, but takes treats gently and loves attention when you gain his trust!
– currently an outdoor pig.
– good with children and other animals.
– neutered.
– microchipped.
