Hello! My name is Chopper
Chopper arrived here on March 8th, 2011, timid and scared of people. He has done well to come around and be friendlier.Chopper was supposedly raised indoors and we he was approximately 6 months old on arrival. He came in a little overweight so we have him on a diet. He is a very sweet, non aggressive piggy, but he is also timid of people and sharp movements and scares easily. He has had the best time playing out in the piggy yard since he has been here. Chopper needs a home with people that will spend time developing a bond with him so he will feel safe and secure. He has not yet been tested on a harness and leash.

Rescue Group Info...
Swine Society, Inc. is a no kill rescue organization, providing a safe haven for pigs, and other animals, to live out their lives comfortably should they not be adopted into loving homes.
Our main objective is to work with animal shelters, humane societies, animal control, pet pig owners and the public to rescue unwanted, neglected, abused, or abandoned pigs and place them in safe and loving homes.
We advocate for the removal of any pig(s) known to be in unsafe, unsanitary, or unhealthy conditions until, at which time, the premises have been made safe for the animal to return, or the owner relinquishes rights of the animal to Swine Society, Inc. or another reputable animal shelter or facility.
We assist in educating the public on proper diet, nutrition, care, and maintenance of pet pigs and will ensure adoption candidates are educated in this knowledge as well as familiar interacting with pigs before allowing a pig to be placed in their home.
Through exposure to the public we continue to work to educate others to the wonders and realities of these delightful animals as companions.
We are currently running the sanctuary out of our home and so we require an appointment to view our animals. We do have a calendar of events at our website so you can see when we might be available. Please contact us for more information!
We have an application filled out first. We require new pig parents to make 3 visits to our shelter before a pig will be placed with them. This is to verify their knowledge and confirm that after spending some time with pigs that they still want to invite one into their home. A home visit is next and then their is the adoption agreement. Fees vary based on animal expenses incurred.
Mostly Treasure Coast area and South Florida
