Rescue Me ID: 17-09-06-00292Pig (male)

Farm Animal    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    I had a friend who was moving out of state to an apartment about 5 years ago. He asked if I would be interested in taking his 6 month old piglet that he couldn't bring to his new place. I was unfamiliar with pigs but after doing research found that they were very caring, and smart. I took him up on his offer. I was told he'd be no bigger than around 80 pounds. He is now 300ish. He has outgrown his living area and it would be cruel for me to keep him in such an area. I need to find something quickly and have been searching frantically. He doesn't deserve to be euthanized but rather a second chance at finding a home but I'm running out of ... (Read More)options. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-05-00551Potbellied Pig (female)

Farm Animal    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Animals 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Dot is a female Pot Bellied pig. She was born about 1/2017. She is spayed. Dot was dumped off along with Stella at one of our volunteer's homes. They were abandoned on Friday and not secured in anyway. Our volunteer did not find them until Saturday. Some neighbors said they saw these two precious souls running in the road and around neighboring yards. Luckily they did not get hit by a car before our volunteer found them on Saturday. Dot now wants a home that will be responsible and will care for her for the rest of her life. She can be adopted with one of our other piggies or by herself. Can you please be her home?

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-04-00069Juliana Pig (male)

Farm Animal    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    We have Oscar, a purebred Juliana pig, who is 4 years old. He is active and a good weight and size. He is, in my humble opinion, a rather handsome pig. He has been part of our household, living part of the time outside and coming in the house, mostly to our kitchen where he sleeps on a mat (he does not have run of the house--just needs a sheltered spot to sleep). We care about Oscar, but as time as passed, and he has grown, we have become less certain that the environment that we give Oscar is working for him (or us). Our yard in New Orleans is small, and we have two dogs, but the pigs and the dogs have never become one happy, ... (Read More)blended family. He has tried to develop a connection to the dogs (and still tries), but is rebuffed. Primarily, we keep the pig and dogs apart unless they are supervised, and that has been one of the real challenges for us. We believe he is able to get along with other animals, but our dogs, who are siblings from the same litter, have not warmed up to him and there is friction there at times. So, we want to find him a new home and give him to someone who likes pigs. In terms of caring for him, we have fed him Mazuri Mini-pig adult food with veggies or fruits every day. We also scatter oats outside in the morning for him to pick up. He likes to graze, but fortunately has not done a lot of rooting like many pigs do. He will eat potted plants if they are within his reach (learned that the hard way ). He is house-trained and will go outside to do his 'business.' He needs a sheltered place to sleep. He has been around a lot of people, teens and adults, but not little children--I would be cautious there. We hope that we can locate a place with a larger yard for Oscar. Please call if you would like more information. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Farm Animal in Louisiana
    Farm Animals can make good pets in Louisiana if they match your IifestyIe. Farm animals such as sheep, goats, and pigs are useful additions to working farms. For example, sheep can provide people with milk for cheese and other dietary staples, as well as wool for clothing. Dairy goats are so hardy and such valuable sources of food that providing one for a family living in extreme poverty (through an organization such as Heifer International) can completely alter the existence of that family. Farm animals provide manure for fertilizer to grow healthy vegetables. The sale of dairy, wool, and offspring of farm animals can be a major source of income. Many people think farm animals are cute and picturesque and would like to own one or more. However, caring for these animals is very labor intensive, and unless these animals are part of a working farm, they can become the victims of abuse or neglect.

    Potbellied pigs are an excellent example. Potbellied pigs became popular as house pets in the nineties. However, pigs can weigh over 130 pounds and are not as easy to care for as other household pets. Pigs need to be outside to satisfy their natural instincts to rut. Sadly, many owners of potbellied pigs are not ready for the commitment and challenges of having a pig for a pet, leaving many animals in need of adoption.

lnteresting Farm Animal Trivia Low-Cost Louisiana Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Farm animals are useful sources of fertilizer, food, and clothing. One dairy goat can provide about a ton of milk and two to three kids annually. Pigs are smarter than dogs and are the fourth most intelligent type of animal, behind humans, primates, and dolphins. Goat milk, unlike cow milk, contains all of the essential amino acids, making it the only regular source of complete protein for countless traditionally vegetarian populations all over the world. Goat dairy products are easier to digest than cow milk, and may even help to prevent some types of gastrointestinal problems.
