About Roger and Shye

This magnificent duo are a match made in Cheshire. Originally both Roger and Shye were lonely pigs, listed separately on our site. It was always our dream to find them a home together. However, Shye’s situation became more urgent and her life was suddenly on the line. To save her, Roger’s carer invited Shye to move in with them and it was love at first sight for these two special pigs. Now they are ready for their forever home together!

Roger is a castrated male who is very friendly and loves belly rubs, while Shye is equally friendly but the more dominant of the two, keeping Roger on his trotters at feed time. Roger particularly likes to plough at the ground with Shye following behind to see what treasures he might have unearthed. Their distinctive personalities and fun, inquisitive natures will bring a lifetime of love and laughter to the right home.

They are both very sweet and sociable, but they are large pigs and still young so they can be a bit of a boisterous handful around food. A confident, experienced guardian would be best suited to giving this wonderful pair the long and happy life together that they deserve.

We’d love to find a new home close to their current location, but if you can offer them the perfect home further away we would still love to hear from you!

Apply to Adopt

Please note, as well as a completed adoption application form we require several good quality photographs of the areas in which the pigs would live. You should include photographs that give a good idea of the size of the space available, the type and features of the terrain, all shelters that would be accessible by the pigs and the type of containment you will be using (stock-proof fencing, electrical fencing, walls etc.)

You can submit these photographs by emailing us directly at rescue@everypig.org

A member of our team will be in touch once we have received your completed form and photographs.

By submitting this form you confirm and agree that any animals within your care are kept as companion animals and are not/will not be used for the purpose of breeding or consumption, human or otherwise.
