Meet Nellie!

Meet Nellie, an beautiful six year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Nellie was rescued with 41 (yes, 41!) other pigs in an animal hoarding case Oinking Acres worked in September of 2022, but it hasn’t kept her from being a sweet and friendly girl. Nellie is very outgoing and is a very social pig who currently lives in a large herd and needs to be adopted with another pig. 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. Nellie 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 Nellie, please fill out an adoption application online. Her adoption fee is $150 ($250 for two pigs), 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).

Nellie is …
– a very sweet and friendly girl who loves everyone she meets!
– currently a social outdoor pig in a herd and needs to be adopted with another pig.
– spayed.
