This is Luau AKA Lou. He is a Pot Bellied Pig.  Lou was house-trained as a younger pig, but is now an outdoor pet. Lou was rescued because of his living situation which was less than ideal for a pig. 

He is a companion to Limbo, who was rescued from dismal living conditions in Spokane. She only had moldy hay bales for protection, and was fed primarily stale bread and occasional veggies. 

Limbo cannot be adopted out due to having never been spayed. This procedure is only safe when done when pigs are 16 - 28 weeks or so of age, because after that, their body fat can cause problems with the anesthesia, not to mention, the body fat is dangerous to operate near.

Lou and Limbo are but two victims of the 'Pig fad'.  What is a PIG FAD, you ask? 

Well you see all the cute little piglets on the internet, Facebook is loaded with them, Pinterest, you name it.  OH so cute, so adorable and so...TINY!!! 

So of course, everyone ought to have one of these...'Teacup', or 'Micro' or 'pocket' pigs! The only problem is...these are INFANT pigs, and 'guaranteed to stay small', but they don't! They often grow larger than most dogs, and have some behaviors as they grow, that are incompatible with living in homes. 

So, like Limbo and Lou, these pigs are gradually shoved outside, and forgotten, until they become ill and die, or, if lucky, find a rescue.

This then leads to rescues being overloaded - the 'market' for adult pigs is slim (no pun intended!) and thus, they stay in rescue forever, like Lou and Limbo.  

Lou and Limbo are considered sanctuary pigs, because of Limbo's being intact (not spayed) but also because suitable homes were not able to be found for them. 

To donate to Limbo and Lou's care, feel free to email us! Alphamom33@aol.com or if you are in the area (Prosser), you can stop by and donate in person, or bring by a bag or two of Pig maintenance!
