Sometimes people have a wonderful home to offer pigs, but they may not be able to offer that home for the entire duration of a pig’s life. We often have older pet pigs looking for new homes who would be perfect for anyone in this situation. Older pigs will still engage all the same behaviours as any pig, but they may spend a bit more time snoozing and could well need extra protection from the elements when they do so. They will need plenty of access to hard-standing areas to help stave off the arthritis to which all pigs are prone. Joint problems are exacerbated by spending too much time walking in deep mud.
Many people prefer to get younger pigs as they, understandably, want to spend as much of their lives together as possible. If you think you might be a candidate to rehome some lovely piggies who may be a bit more senior but still have plenty of life and love left in them please check out the profiles below.
Please read and carefully consider all of the information in our Pig Care section before beginning the application process.
