|What Is Your Passion or Your Story||
I run a one person potbelly pig rescue and placement. I received my 501(c)(3) non-profit designation in Dec, 2008 to try and gain donations to help more pigs. My specialty in helping owners understand and train their pigs before they just give up on their unruly animal and turn them into a shelter. I also run a anti-teacup pig website to try and battle the lies breeders tell to run up the prices on the potbelly pigs they sell.

What do people need to know before buying any potbelly pig, especially a piglet?
Why are pigs such specialized pets?
What is all the hype over a teacup, micro mini, pocket pig?
|Name of Animal||
|History or Story|
|Pumba and 6 of his piglets were taken from an illegal backyard breeder (not zoned or licensed to breed). I took him and the 2 runt piglets and another rescue took the other 4. The owner had 30 days to spay his female and could claim Pumba back, but never did. Upon exam, the vet found that he has what looks like cataracts and so does Percy, one of his piglets. Pumba is almost blind right now so will need a specialized home that he can learn to navigate but also keep him in a routine as without sight, he gets easily confused. He is welcome to stay at VegasPigPets until that special home is found, but we hope we can find him a home that he can have a friend that will eventually become his eyes. He is sweet as can be but without sight a prey animal needs the protection of his herd.|
|Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal||
How do you feel not being able to see well?
How do you feel when other “new” pigs come into VegasPigPets and you don’t know them? Does it scare you?
What kind of new home would you like?
Are you afraid of dogs?
How do you feel about about Percy and Pip Squeak going to a new home together without you?
I would like to spend some time talking about this teacup pig craze that has resulted in so many pigs coming into our rescues and sanctuaries because they have “outgrown” their homes and didn’t stay as small as promised. I have run my teacup website on behalf of rescues and sanctuaries nationwide who are so frustrated with the lies but try to put the well being of the pig first. Space is already at a premium and if people would not fall for these lies, breeders would have to stop breeding! A regular pbpig breeder maybe gets $50 a pig, put a teacup in the name and they can get $1000 – $5000!
