Rutherford Rescue Pigs in Jamison, PA
Rutherford Rescue Pigs

The Rutherford Rescue Pigs were rescued from a hoarding situation in North Carolina. Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary reached out to many pig organizations for help with the overwhelming number of pigs in need of rescue. PPN's foster facility at Ross Mill Farm took in 12 pigs on 9/5/20, all of them young, many of them piglets. These piggies are currently quarantined and the couple baby boys are separated from the girls, but still near each other. They are curious and sweet, despite what they have been through so far in life. Some even were rolling over for belly rubs shortly after arriving! Many of them are underweight, and all need vet care and love. 11/24/20 Update: the group has put on weight and is now healthy & starting to get adopted! Most have been spayed & neutered. 

Girls: Raelyn, Rainey, Remi, Renata, Riley, Roz, and Ruth (aka Big Mama)

Boys: Puddleglum, Digory

These pigs will not be available for adoption until they are healthy and we have them spayed or neutered. Intact pigs do not make the best companion animals. Spaying prevents unwanted litters, curbs behavior problems, and prevents uterine tumors. Neutering prevents behavior issues and eliminates that classic boar odor. Altering piggies when they're young is safer and usually less expensive than waiting until it becomes a problem or a medical emergency.

If you are interested in adopting, please complete the application and mention the name, city, and state of the pig(s) you're interested in: https://www.pigplacementnetwork.org/online-adoption-application/

Qualified homes must 1) be in a zone friendly community, 2) locate a vet that will care for pet pigs, 3) own their home.
