Considering a new pet? The Pig Placement Network is happy to assist in making that decision.
The Pig Placement Network works to promote domesticated pigs as pets, provide education to pet pig owners, veterinarians, shelters and the general public and work with animal shelters, humane societies and pet pig owners to rescue unwanted, abused or abandoned pet pigs and place them into new, loving homes.
Susan Magidson of PPN said that there are plenty of pigs across the U.S. in need of a good home.
"Almost all the sanctuaries across the country are really full because of a trend of selling piglets online," Magidson said.
To learn more about adopting your very own pig, Ross Mill Farm in Bucks County is hosting Piggypalooza on Saturday, June 27 from noon until 10 p.m. There will be live bands, food drinks and of course pigs.
