Below we are proud to show pigs that have
been adopted. If you have adopted a
rescue this past year or have a picture of one that has been adopted, please
feel free to e-mail it to us at PAPA@pigsaspets.org
so that we can post it for all to see and to rejoice that another piggie has
found a good home.

Remember that there are lots of abandoned
and orphaned pigs still needing homes, so we must push forward to see that new
homes are found. Remember, they don’t have to have been adopted from PAPA, just
adopted and not bought from a breeder. We know that not everyone needs or wants
a potbellied pig, so when any of us finds a good home for one, we need to share
in the joy.


This adorable
piglet (top pic) was a litter runt who had to be taken away from mom
because mom was so sick. He’s been raised indoors since he was one week old. 
He’s very sweet, and loves belly rubs!  The bottom picture is a
little female who was thrown over the fence of a sanctuary.  She
bonded with the little male piglet, and the decision was made to adopt
these two as a pair, since they’ve become so attached to one another.

We’re
happy to announce that both of these babies were recently adopted by Dana
in Indiana!

She was adopted by Dianne and her family in Napoleon, Ohio.  A recent
letter from Dianne is below:

“Hi Lana. Just wanted you to
know my Charlie is doing great. I will send you a picture. She is very
spoiled now . Terry is bringing her something home everytime he comes from
work. She loves her baths, at first she didn’t.  She seems to have
turned into Terry’s little girl. She heads for the door everytime he comes
home. She has her own room now and loves it. She gives a kiss everytime
she gets a mint.  She is just a sweetie we love her very much so
don’t worry about her. She is doing great I just wanted you to know. Take
care Dianne”

will be going to her new home very soon!

Here is the old
gentlemen pig, I picked up in Lake Mary/Sanford area.  He is a sweet
old pig.  I named him Eustis.  He is happy here, so he is going
to stay.  He is trying so hard to be liked it is really kind of sad
that he is fearful like my Wally that he will be dumped again.
He has his own quilt and none of the other pigs pick on him as he is
so big, skinny, but still big.  This is good so I don’t have to
worry about the piggies being mean to him.  Once he got his
quilt, he nestled right in and let out a great big sigh and went
right to sleep.  He checked out the yard, did his poops,
started to rain and he headed right in to his quilt.  Liked he had
lived here his all his life.  One of the pigs, Elmo came and
stared at him, but Eustis just ignored him and snuggled deeper into
his quilt and that was it.
He responds to his name already too.  Loves his peppermints and
tonight waited patiently while the “regular” pigs got there and sat
patiently on his quilt waiting for me to notice him.  I called out
and he immediately got up and walked over for his nightly treat
too.  Took it gently from my fingers, turned and walked to his
quilt, fluffed it up, laid down and crunched the peppermint then
closed his eyes to sleep.
It is uncanny, how at home he is here.  Out of all the pigs I have
rescued, none has ever displayed such behavior.  It is very
interesting to me.  — Nancy
