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.

Babe is only 18 months old, with lots of love to give.  We are not sure of her breed, but she was saved from slaughter and is sociable with humans.  She has had some experience with other pigs, but her current carer wants her to have a safe home with other pigs so she can socialise and never be lonely again.  Transport covered.   If you think you can offer this beautiful girl a forever home, please get in touch.


Notorious PIG and Piggy Izalia - Date added: 8/8/23  **AT RISK** 

Castrated male and entire female pot bellied pigs, aged 3,  in need of rehoming due to demand from the land's owner.  These are a social pair who like to be with people.  They can be territorial with other animals, so would not suit a home with other animals in their pen, or small children.  They love a cuddle!  Currently in Nottingham, transport will be covered up to 2 hours, and partially funded.

Jaffa is a 6 year old castrated male pig.  He is labrador-sized, gentle and with no health issues.  Currently living in Worksop.  Can be rehomed with Charlotte if there is sufficient space for introductions as these two are not currently living together.  Transport is not provided, but we will help where we can.  


Charlotte- Date added: 27/3/23  **HOME PENDING**

Charlotte is an unneutered female pig.  She is labrador-sized, gentle and with no health issues.  Currently living in Worksop.  Can be rehomed with Jaffa if there is sufficient space for introductions as these two are not currently living together.  Transport is not provided, but we will help where we can.

Ginger Pig- Date added: 13/2/23  **URGENT**

Ginger Pig is a large white and is 7 years old.  She was hand reared and absolutely thrives on human affection.  She gets along with other pigs and animals too so must live with another pig (or potential owners must be prepared to adopt a 2nd - we already have a potential match on our list).  Her owner is sadly no longer able to care for her due to illness.  She is located in N. Lincolnshire.  Transport is available and we can support with arranging transport.    


Penelope - Date added: 14/12/22

Five adorable brothers, all needing a home.  They can be split into 3 and a pair.  Need rehoming as no-one to look after them.  Tamworthy breed, 2 years old castrated males.  All very sociable, have had lots of human contact, and get along together well.  Currently in Harrogate.  PITW can support with arranging transport.
