My story

How this pet arrived:
Buffalo was brought in by our Humane Law Enforcement Team.

Buffalo has been vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. He is now ready for his new home!

Why this pet is the one for you:
Pigs make wonderful pets, and they require a lot of consideration. Before adopting it is important to confirm with your city that your property is properly zoned for housing a pig. Pigs also require a large outdoor space, appropriately fenced and containing access to a predator-proofed indoor shelter area. They also require access to fairly large bodies of water, especially when the weather warms up. They love to lounge and cool off, root around and play in water! Ample fresh drinking water should be provided separately. Pigs are incredibly social and thrive with other piggy friends. Pigs can bond to other animals and they form very close relationships with humans. Pigs are extremely intelligent animals. Most pigs are food motivated and enjoy the mental stimulation of positive reinforcement training, just like dogs! If you are interested in adopting Buffalo, our adoption counselors would be happy to tell you more.

More about this shelter

San Diego Humane Society, an open-admission shelter, is creating a more humane world by inspiring compassion and advancing the welfare of animals and people. Our lifesaving safety net has helped San Diego become the largest city in the U.S. to keep healthy and treatable shelter animals from being euthanized. We are a private, independent, nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other humane society or society for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

With campuses in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside, Ramona and San Diego, we provide animal services for 14 cities within San Diego County. We not only care for 50,000 animals in our communities but also share the expertise we have gained through our innovative programs with shelters nationwide so they can save more lives in their communities.

While our influence is expanding nationally, our top priority is meeting the needs of San Diego. We provide exceptional care for all animals through world-class veterinary medicine, shelter and most of all: love.
