PIG ADOPTION PROCESS

Adoption Process

The 2019 flooding of the Tennessee River damaged our computers, equipment, and communication systems. If you fill out an adoption application but were not contacted, please let us know. Your application was probably flooded and not rejected.

PeeWee Piglets adoption objective is to assure permanent and successful placement for the entire life of the pig. We like happy owners and happy pigs. We want to make sure we have the right pet for you, and you have the right home for a PeeWee Piglet.

PeeWee Piglets assumes a lifetime responsibility for our pigs and we want our owners to have the same mindset and dedication as we do. However, in the event that an owner can't keep their pig, we'll take it back with no questions asked.

Be A Responsible Pig Owner

A pig lives up to twenty years and is a big commitment that should not be taken lightly. All prospective new pig owners are responsible for the pig's welfare. It is the owner's responsibility to train and provide for the care and living arrangments for their pig. `If a problem occurs, work toward a solution and not abandonment. Many shelters euthanize after only three days and rescues are often at full capacity, and can't take another animal.

Pigs are highly intelligent and emotional creatures that from strong social bonds. It is traumatic for the pig to leave their home and their family. Pigs will miss and grieve, sometimes for months and even years. Pigs feel grief, sorrow, loss and exhibit behavior very similar to our own behavior. A grieving pig will look sad, refuse food and water, act lethartgic and not show an interest in things that pigs are normally interested in. Pigs even cry real tears.

This Gravity Falls comic strip (below), is a sad but accurate account of the pain and anguish experienced by both the owner and the pig, when a pig is rehomed or surrendered. It is heartbreaking for Mabel to relinquish her pet and for Waddles to leave his home and the little girl he loved so much. This same pitiful scenario occurs every day when owners surrender their pet pigs. Please be a responsible owner and keep your pig for life. You have your work, your family, friends and hobbies. Your pig just has YOU.
