Rehoming

Although we would love to take in more pigs at our sanctuary we are sadly full. However, because we get asked on a weekly basis to help pigs in need, we run a national Rehoming Service. We advertise pigs in need on our social media pages, on our website, and through a network of contacts across the country. We discuss all aspects of rehoming to make sure the right decision is made for the welfare of the pigs and we help with transport to new homes when possible. We ask for a suggested minimum donation from both parties (except for sanctuaries and rescues) and if we provide transport, those costs to be covered. Full details on our Rehoming Process, including what you need to do, can be found here.
If you can offer a home or know of any pigs that need our help please contact our Rehoming Team via Email

To support our Rehoming Service, you can donate to our gofundme campaign here. And to read about the pigs we have found homes for please click here.

If you know of anywhere appropriate that would be happy to put up one of our posters to find new homes, you can print off a copy of the poster here

Ottis & Etta - Date added 19/4/21 URGENT

At least 8 yrs old, Kunekunes, male is castrated. Rehomed some weeks ago (were Crispy & Bacon) but home don't feel they can cope with Ottis' behaviour, which we suspect is due to him being unsettled by all the changes. Need an experienced home who will commit to them. Currently in Derbyshire, new home ideally within 2 hours of the Midlands. Help with transport may be available.

George & Percy - Date added 18/4/21

Crossbreed, castrated. George has recently shown some aggressive behaviour on one occasion and due to small children visiting the family feel it is safest to rehome.  Currently in South Wales, transport may be available depending on distance. 

Martin - Date added 10/12/20

4 year old castrated, breed unknown. In need of a new home due to a change in circumstances. Has become unsettled and this is showing in his behaviour, so needs an experienced home to help him relax again. Currently in South Yorkshire, fuel costs covered, we may be able to help transport.

Hugo - Date added: 8/12/20

 

7 year old castrated pot-bellied. Needs a new home due to his human moving home and unable to take Hugo with him. Currently in Kent, his human wants to visit regularly, so a home within an hour of Kent would be ideal but is willing to go up to 100 miles of Kent. Transport available

Nancy has bonded well with the boys now the girls have gone so the home would be happy to see her rehomed with the boys, or she can stay. Currently in Staffordshire area but transport can be arranged.

Homes for the following pigs currently pending:

The Allotment Pigs  - Date added Dec 2018  - Updated 11/3/21 - Home Pending

 

Big Guy is the only one left from the original group of 16. Castrated male approx 7 years old currently in the Sheffield area. Probably Kunekune/Potbellied cross. We can help with transport.

Belle & Hermonie - Date added 18/3/21 - Home Pending

9 month old KuneKune/OSB ladies. Very much loved but the family can't give the space and enrichment they feel the pigs need. Currently in Sheffield, fuel expenses paid and we could probably help transport.

Poppy, Percy & Penny - Date added: 11/2/20. - Home Pending

5 year old  Kunekunes. Percy is castrated. Need  a new home due to change in family circumstances and no longer getting the attention they need. Currently in Norfolk/Suffolk area. Family are willing to transport as far as needed to get a good home.

Bruce, Cuddles & Ginger - Date added: 27/10/20 -  Temp/Perm home pending 12/3/21

Bruce, Cuddles & Ginger are no longer at risk as the Centre is willing to wait until we find them somewhere. We have a foster home, just as soon as they have finished preparations, in Sussex and a possible permanent home, again preparations delayed by COVID. In the meantime if something more local came up that was permanent we would consider it. 4 year old castrated male and 2 females Kune x Large Black, and Kune x Tamworth. Very friendly used to human contact as currently on an educational farm which unfortunately due to loss of finances from COVID restrictions need to rehome by end of the year. Can be transported within 1 hour of home in Suffolk. We would try and find transport if needed further afield.
