Encino: (Feb. 8, 2015), Delilah Sweetpig is a beautiful black, silver and pink snouted 4.8 year-old, 135 lb female potbellied pig. She became part of our family at 12 weeks old and made pig aficionados of all of us and charmed our neighborhood in Encino, CA. Besides liking most of the usual piggy things, specifically following the sunshine throughout the yard, napping under rosemary bushes, tummy rubs, massages and brushing, she LOVES snuggling on laps, having her loose bristles tugged out in the spring, kicking her heels up after a swim in her wading pool and sucking on her lips when she sleeps. She likes learning new commands and tricks. Besides several routines and words she has learned, she sits, kisses, gives ‘sugar’, and does her ‘baby-face’ on command. She uses her ‘baby-face’ as her sign for ‘more’ and to remind us that its meal time. Delilah doesn’t care for small children and does not like dogs, the word ‘No’, rainy days and the cold. She also does not like leaf blowers or raw broccoli.

With the heaviest of hearts, we are faced with a decision we never thought we would make in finding Delilah a new home because she recently got in a fight with our son’s dog, and I was injured in the process of separating the two. As a mother, I am forced to look at our beloved pet as a risk in my home and I sense that what she may need for her happiness is something we cannot provide. It is my feeling that Delilah would likely do very well in a peaceful home perhaps with an experienced owner, perhaps with other pigs, but with no children or dogs.

Kara Fox just recently photographed Delilah for a calendar, and here is what she said about her experience working with her: “To anyone who loves pigs… Delilah is truly one of the smartest and best behaved pigs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing- So sweet.
She even kissed her ‘Mother’ gently right on the lips! She is precious and I still smile when I think of my time with her”- Kara Fox. If anyone is called to meet Delilah to see if she will fill a space in your heart like she has in ours, please call me.

Manteca: (May 18, 2015): Snooter is a neutered male two-year-old potbellied pig who is in need of a new home. He is trained; he comes in the house and, if he needs to go outside, he walks to the door and waits for someone to let him outside to the backyard. He enjoys the backyard when the weather is nice. He hasn’t displayed any signs of aggression. His hooves need to be trimmed and he needs to be on a diet because he’s a bit chubby. He is great with other animals, such as cats and dogs.

Oceanside: (Nov. 4, 2015), Her name is Ms. Piggy, although I call her just piggy and she responds to that as well. She will be roughly fifteen weeks on Thursday the 5th. I feed her twice a day , once in the morning and once at night. I feed her about half a cup of food both times. She knows what you mean when you say “Are you hungry?”, she perks up and runs to where her food is! She eats Mazuri mini pig food (Adult type now). She will remind you that she needs to be fed, if you forget she will start making grunting, throat noises and let you know she is hungry. For snacks her favorite is green apples ! She also likes grapes, animal crackers, and avocado. She doesn’t like carrots at all! She drinks lots of water on her own but if I ever notice her not drinking water I will give her some 100% fruit juice in her water, not much, just about a capful or so depending on how much water you give her. She loves dog treats as well ! (NOT THE PORK FLAVORED ONES THOUGH!!!) Ms. Piggy loves to sleep under the blankets with me at night and she just likes being under blankets in general. She loves playing on the beach in the sand and in any grassy or dirt area of course. When she gets on carpet or is outside she loves to run around and play with you. She is well trained on the leash although getting the harness on her is still hard. She scratches and rubs herself on EVERYTHING but the pig vet told me she has healthy skin so her habits are just normal not excessive. The vet also informed me that she has very healthy teeth and weight and all in all she is in good health. She had two vaccines , when I find the paper I will let you know what they are. She goes for one more at the end of the month. We sometimes give her a bath just to make her fur a bit softer, we add a small bit of baby oil to the water every time we bathe her. She gets nervous in the tub though and sometimes poops in the water. She is trained to use the pee pads in the house but she also goes potty outside if you take her. If she needs to be transported she is typically good in a car, but if she gets spooked she will poop (this goes for anywhere if she is spooked she will poop).

The reason I am looking for a new home for her is because of where I live. I do not have a yard at all, so the only freedom she gets is when we take her in the car to a dog park or to the beach. It is not fair that she stays cooped up and I believe she is becoming depressed. She needs some outdoor freedom and to be with other animals because at my house when we leave she is home alone for most of the day while I am at work. It is very hard to be parting with her and the only way I will be able to do it is knowing she will be very well taken care of and I would like to be able to check up on her as well.

Sonoma County: URGENT (Oct. 21, 2015) Two 9-month old Gloucester pigs are in need of a new home. They were purchased when they were a couple of months old with the intention of raising and breeding them in a healthy, loving, and sustainable situation on a piece of land their guardians were renting specifically slated for that purpose. Due to circumstances beyond their control, the guardians could not stay on that piece of land and ended up moving the girls into an impromptu pigpen in their backyard. Their guardians don’t have the space or resources to give them the life they wanted for them and are getting complaints/pressure from our neighbors about getting rid of them. They also live in a flood zone and know that it is going to be a very wet, possibly flooded winter season there. Their guardians don’t want them the pigs to end up being someone’s dinner when they are just so sweet. They are a very docile breed and love to play and have their bellies scratched. The guardians’ 2,4, and 6 year old children all love them and vice versa. At this point, their guardians would just want them to go somewhere safe.

Waianae: (May 4, 2015), Wilbur was found Christmas eve 2014 stranded on the side of the road when he was one week old. Wilbur was very sickly and all of 4 lbs. when he was found and rescued. His rescuers cared for him night and day and he is now completely healthy. He is now a robust neutered Yorkshire farm pig. His rescuers live in a townhouse, though, and Wilbur is outgrowing it. Although his rescuers are moving to a new home soon, it too will not be very accommodating to a full-grown farm pig. Wilbur is incredibly sweet and friendly. He loves to have his back scratched and to be anywhere his humans are. According to them, “he brings laughter and joy every day and everywhere he goes. Wilbur is the sweetest, most lovable, laid back gentle giant. Everyone loves him and he loves them, too!” He much prefers to fruit and veggies to any sweets.
