Rehoming Stories

We have helped a number of pigs find new homes. Here are a selection of stories and at the bottom of the page you can see all the other rehomed pigs.

Salt & Pepper - now Flo & Clementine

Flo & Clementine came from a Youth Hostel that no longer wanted them. Booked for slaughter twice, their story could have been made into a film! Brinsley Animal Rescue took them in at the last minute.

Porco Rosso & Chris

Porco Rosso & Chris

Porco Rosso is a Tamworth boar who was due to be sent to Europe for slaughter. Chris, one of the ex-allotment pigs, joined him in his new home as a companion some time later.


The 2 blind piglets

2 very young piglets with no eyes were abandoned in a field. Luckily the field's owner took them in. We were able to find a home for them at Coppershell Farm Sanctuary. 

Derek Trotter

Derek Trotter

Derek needed a new home after his family's life changed with a baby which meant they were spending more time inside. Although bought as a house pig, Derek had other ideas and preferred to be outside. Happily Brinsley Animal Rescue took him and paired him up with a lady friend.


The Hampshire 3

2 sows and a boar were found abandoned, wandering along a road. We helped the kind family who rescued them find them permanent homes after a lot of hard work!


  came to us when his owner could no longer keep him due to a change in circumstances.
