About Spotty Dotty and Babe

These two beautiful sisters live on a therapeutic farm for adults and children with learning disabilities. Unfortunately, the farm is no longer able to afford their care and needs to rehome them as soon as possible.

The option of sending them to slaughter to raise money for the farm was considered but the workers and visitors have grown to love them so much that they have asked us to find them a forever home instead.

Both girls are used to having daily interactions with people and they happily co-exist around a variety of animals including; dogs, sheep, alpacas, goats and chickens.

Dotty is the most confident and adventurous of the two, she’s happy to take scratches and belly rubs any time. Babe is a little more reserved and docile, she still enjoys affection but a little more on her own terms.

Not long after arriving on the farm Babe surprised them with an ‘oops’ litter of piglets. She was separated from Dotty to give birth but the sisters were so upset at being apart that they were allowed to co-parent and did a wonderful job of raising five healthy piglets together.

Due to the time-sensitive nature of the situation we are looking for both permanent and temporary homes for these two sweet girls. If you have a space where you can keep them safe and well while we find their forever home we would 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.

e.g. good with children, experience around other species, particular size/breed, specific age. Anything you can tell us that will help match you with the best pig/s for you
Not having previous experience will not disqualify you from consideration for adoption, but it may affect which pig/s are best suited to you
