    Advice needed for rescuing piggies

    Hey! Sorry for the long winded message. We’re off to rescue a couple of little piggies and I’d be grateful for any advice. We originally planned to adopt from a rescue (trying to teach my children the importance of rescuing rather than buying from a pet store) so we expected to get 2/3...

    New Family Member!

    I took my two boys Rocky and Capone to the local rescue to do a bit of boar dating today. They were separated on January 14th. Unfortunately Rocky did not find a suitable match, he was too dominant for any of the males at the shelter. My plan next is to get Rocky neutered and find a nice sow...

    Cute Bonding Video Done At London Rescue

    Check it out here: I went to volunteer at a Rescue in London. I like volunteering because at the moment I'm so busy that I can't have any Pigs of my own. They're a small rescue but they're fantastic. They save the lives of abused and abandoned Guinea Pigs and it would mean a lot to me if you...

    What Do People Think About This? Is This Ok Or Not?

    So I've been contacting rescues trying to find my girl Baby a husband, And one rescue said this: 'Those animals still waiting for their forever home really appreciate food, veg, hay & they lurve grass but not from the lawnmower which pulps it. If we have clean, sealed bags of piggy waste, we'd...

    Are These The Same Pigs?

    Do you think these are the same pigs? The cage is the same with the ill-fitting door, they're in the same location, one of both 'pairs' has died and they are incredibly similar if not the same, both 'pairs' are boars. The angle makes it difficult though...

    Where Is A Map Of Rescues?

    I'm the new (less than a week) mom of the sweetest little 3-4 mos. (petco) male but contrary to what petco's "expert" said I now read he needs a piggy friend and not just me & my son's attention. The petco attendant said he had another male in his cage for a bit and he tolerated him but he...
