Hello! My name is Gremlin
Gremlin is an American Heritage Pig or Florida Feral. He can grow to be 400 lbs or more when full grown. Please do not contact about adopting Gremlin unless you have adequate space and fencing to ensure his quality of life as he grows. Priority will be given to those with prior pig experience.GREMLIN CURRENTLY WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 175lbs. Gremlin's rescue really began on February 5th when he was rescued by a wonderful lady who saw some boys dragging him down the road on a leash. She pulled over and immediately offered money to the boys in order to rescue the little pig from suffering any longer!Upon reaching home with Gremlin, she attempted to remove his collar, which was on him so tight that she thought she might have to cut it to remove it from his tiny neck.She cared for Gremlin and began asking around to get him into a permanent home. I picked him up on the 15th of February. Gremlin was does very well with a litter box when he is inside the house and is harness and leash trained as well as neutered, and up to date on his vaccines.

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
