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.

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.
