Thank you for your interest in adopting or fostering a pig from Lil’ Orphan Hammies. You will notice that our questionnaire is somewhat lengthy. This is only because abandoned and relinquished pet pigs have become and international issue. Sanctuaries nationwide are at capacity, filled with pigs that exceeded their owner’s expectations for size and care. Pigs make wonderful companions, when placed in the right home. We want to ensure that the best possible home is found for each pig, and that all prospective pig owners carefully consider just what will be needed to keep a happy and healthy pet pig. As your application is considered, we do require a home visit, in order to assess the prospective placement’s living area, and in cases of first-time pig owners, we ask that you spend 3-4 hours at either Lil’ Orphan Hammies or another sanctuary in your area, in order to observe the pigs in their natural environment and ask any questions you may have.
