Urgent Cases

At Every Pig Rescue Service we often deal with urgent cases of pigs who need new homes fast. We have saved pigs from a variety of terrible situations, but there are always more that need our help.

If you are already set up to take on pigs straight away, please consider prioritising the urgent cases below. You may well help us to save their lives!

(Don’t worry, we rescued the pigs in the above photos and they are now living wonderful lives with wonderful people)

We are often contacted by people who tell us that if a new home for their pigs cannot be found quickly then those pigs will be killed. We also take on cases from farms, abandoned pigs, pigs currently living in unsuitable conditions and any number of other situations where time is of the essence. It is one of the most stressful parts of our work, but it also the most rewarding. Nothing compares to seeing a pig who was previously in dire straits living a good, safe life.

Please read and carefully consider all of the information in our Pig Care section before beginning the application process.

Urgent cases are often our most expensive and usually we are the pigs’ last hope. Please consider donating to help us save the lives of pigs in desperate need.
