Ruby's Info...

Ruby's Story...
She was originally purchased by a family who planned to raise her for food. She kept escaping (smart pig!) and they found it impossible to properly contain and care for her. They also realized how sweet and social she was and decided they did not want to eat her - so they contacted WHS.

She is super friendly and loves tummy rubs. She will come when she is called - but is willful and will continue to grow and grow and grow - until she weighs several hundred pounds. She will test any and all fencing and even now, she uses her nose to root and move heavy objects around with ease.

She is used to being around dogs and loves marshmallows, peanuts (unsalted) and having her ears scratched.

She needs a home with the space and secure fencing capable of caring for a large pig - and a home that will treat her like a valued family companion - where she will not end up on the dinner table. A home with other livestock would be ideal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, a Bellingham Pig (Farm) was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pig (Farm) for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Pig (Farm) from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pig (Farm) breeders who help with Pig (Farm) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
