My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Mario is a gorgeous abby boy about 3 years old.
He was rescued by one of our volunteers from a Los Angeles shelter where he had been for several months.

Mario has been with us for a very long time and really could use his own forever home.
He doesn't seem to like other adult males so the ideal home with him would be with a baby male piggy, spayed female or just grid buddy.

We think life in the shelter was rough on him because he has had to learn how to trust people, it's still an ongoing process. His foster mom has picked him up and held him a lot and it has made a difference.

We think he would do best in a home that has older children.

All of our piggies are fostered in LA, OC and Ventura Counties so please message us if you would like to meet any of them.
