Should You Get a Pig as a Pet?

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • Pet rescues are inundated with full-sized potbellied pigs who have been surrendered after their owners could no longer care for them
  • Some breeders will mislead pet owners that they’re selling “micro,” “mini” or “teacup” pigs, which have been starved in order to keep them small; many pet pigs reach 100+ pounds
  • Pigs are smart, social and playful animals who require a great deal of mental stimulation and an appropriate living environment for optimal well-being
  • Pet pigs are not legal in all areas; check your local laws before adding a pig to your home
  • If you decide a pig is the pet for you, be sure to contact one of the many potbellied pig rescue organizations throughout the U.S. for adoption information
