What Is Your Passion or Your Story
VegasPigPets was formed to educate owners on the specialized needs of keeping potbelly pigs as pets. Most people re-home their pets due to either, zoning, size or behavioral disorders. By helping understanding their pigs, we can usually keep the pig in it’s home. We will help rehome pigs that the owners decide they cannot commit to. Our passion is to stop the sales of teacup pigs. Laura your show helped us reach out to many people interested in researching teacup pigs and we got over 2000 hits to the teacup website by the next morning after being on your show!

Reggie
Told he was 3, vet thinks he is over 10

Reggie Needs A Home!

 

Reggie Needs A Home!

Story

A ranch called VPP in for a consultation on a 3 yr old pig they had rescued early last year. He was having seizures everyday and had lost a lot of weight. When I got there, Reggie was locked in a darkened horse stall (they said he would have a seizure in the hot sun so this was his protection.) He had no water (said he kept tipping his bowl over) and was all skin and bones. Every time I would open the stall door, he would fall over and have a seizure. Long story short, we took him in 2 months later in November & they signed him over 1/10/12. He was 50 lbs in September, he just weighed in at 104 lbs and hasn’t had a seizure in 4 weeks. His skin (like a pork rind) is slowly recovering and we just removed a malignant mast cell tumor from his tummy.

Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal
1) Would Reggie feel comfortable being adopted into a new home if we could insure he would be well taken care of?
2) How old is he?
3) Did he have seizures his whole life?
4) How does he feel when he has a seizure?
5) Is there anything else I can do for him to make him happier or healthier?
6) Would he like Pork Chop’s company?
Anything else?
I thoroughly enjoyed our last radio broadcast so if Laura would like to throw anything in, that’s great, too!

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.

Pumba Needs A Home

Pumba Needs A Home

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?
Anything else?
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!
