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 Rehoming Fund by clicking on the Donate button at the bottom of the page. Please state donation is for Rehoming Fund. 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
