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.

Rehoming Your Pig


If you wish to rehome your pig,  full details of our Rehoming Process, including what you need to do, can be found here.

Offering a Home to a Pig

If you think you can offer a safe and loving home to any of our pigs listed, or you wish us to keep your details on file so we can let you know when suitable pigs come up, you can find details on what to do here.

Before you consider rehoming a pig, we strongly suggest you read our page What a Pig Needs, especially if keeping pigs is new to you.


If you know of any pigs that need our help please contact our Rehoming Team via Email.
