Sweet Babi Needs a New Home

Location: Karratha

Babi was purchased by her current carers at just 10 weeks old and has been a part of the family ever since. She was sold to them as a miniature pig, but has grown outside of the shires limits for a pet pig. She has become too large and strong to take for walks (on the leash) and trips in the car, as she once had. Concerned the council will find out about her and take her away; her carers have made the difficult decision to rehome their dear Babi.

This pig has a lot of personality; she is curious and playful, intelligent and stubborn and like any of us, she can get a little grumpy from time to time. She understands basic commands like sit, turn around, lay, find and gentle (where she gently takes a treat from your hand).

Babi’s current carer’s are willing to transport her anywhere in WA, or perhaps further to ensure she ends up at the perfect home.

Babi is de-sexed and will be vaccinated before handover to her new family.

Fred & Mali – 2 Pigs Looking for New Digs

Located: Perth WA

Fred and Mali aged 5 and 7 years, are a couple of barrows (de-sexed male pigs) looking to find their forever home. Fred is a Queenslander by birth and was flown over to WA, while Mali was purchased from a family in Northam. Their current owners have become increasingly busy, and have found that they no longer have the time to dedicate to the pigs.

Both boys are very friendly and sociable, and like most pigs, they love a good tummy rub! Although they are both gentle pigs, Fred is the alpha male. Mali currently has an area where he is fed so Fred doesn’t steal his food.

The pigs will be vaccinated before handover to their new family, and an adoption fee of $50 each applies.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME:                Fred & Mali

AGE:                   5 & 7 years

SEX:                   Male

BREED:              Wessex Saddleback & Cross Breed

HEIGHT:            50cm (approx.)

WORMED:         Yes

DESEXED:         Yes

VACCINATED:  Yes

TEMPERAMENT:  Friendly and sociable. Fred being the dominant of the two.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Pigs need a lot of attention and would be suited to a family that has time for playing and cuddles. These boys need to be fed separately otherwise Fred will bully Mali out of his food. They do require a secure yard that can not only keep them safe, but to protect areas of your garden that you do not want demolished.

ADOPTION FEE:  $50 each

We hope you can help us to help these lovely pigs a home .. please fill in the form via the “APPLY HERE” button below if you would like to know more, or offer to adopt.

ON HOLD – Archie the Pound Pig – searching for his perfect home…

Update!

We were unable to find a suitable home for Archie in time so he is staying at Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary for now.  It turns out that Archie has a few bad habits that makes him unsuitable for rehoming at this point – he plays rough and is prone to nipping. We need to work on these issues with him before he can be placed into a permanent adoptive home. We will advertise him again once he is ready – watch this space folks.

Update!

Time is running out for Archie to find his perfect home.. this is so sad as he is a really beautiful boy and we would love nothing more for him (and the people who have fallen in love with him) to find a safe haven for the rest of his days.  He had a visit from a very special lady a few days ago who took some beautiful photos to help us showcase just how special he really is. Kate was so taken by Archie she wrote a few words about her meeting with him…

“From the minute I arrived to photograph Archie, a smile didn’t leave my face. Between his little snorts of joy, cries for attention and hilarious antics, not unlike a playful puppy dog, how could you frown?

Archie put on show after show of “feed me, look at me, I’m going over here, I’m going over there”. It was a fun-filled and far too short hour that I got to spend with him. He loved his food, his belly rubs, and just being with people. He is bursting with character, and deep eyes that show you his precious soul.

If I had the space at home, and didn’t arrive in a sports car for Archie’s photo shoot, I can assure you I’d have driven off into the sunset with him. I know I would have had to fight off the Ranger though, she is smitten too!”

We can’t put it any better than that… Archie is a charmer and would make a wonderful companion for the right home.  Please read his original story and full details below.

Original Story:

Poor little Archie has found himself behind bars after being surrendered to the pound. He’s a real cutie-pie and is now looking for a wonderful home to call his own.

Archie is playful and has spent most of his short life (he’s about 6 months old) in the company of a dog, so he definitely needs to go to a home where he will have companionship from other animals and/or a VERY attentive human. 🙂 He does have one small vice which is probably attributed to his play time with a canine… Archie sometimes nips at your heels when you walk in front of him. The good news is that pigs are SMART, so with the right training this naughty behaviour can be “un-learnt”. Therefore, Archie would best suit a carer with a firm yet gentle hand to help him to learn good manners – he will learn quickly from a skilled and confident trainer.

His new home will need to be in a Shire that allows the keeping of pigs and should have a Property Identification Code (PIC) registered with the Dept of Agriculture. He would best suit a property with at least a few acres to be able to accommodate his growing size – we estimate he may grow to somewhere around 100kgs; so a large paddock, a cool wallow and shade for summer, and secure sheltered pen for winter are a must. Pigs love to dig and Archie is no exception… his new family would need to be understanding of this and allow him to enjoy this fun and stimulating activity.

Archie is desexed, vaccinated and vet health checked.

Adoption fee: $100

We hope you can help us to help this lovely pig… please fill in the Expression of Interest form below if you would like to know more, or offer to adopt. We are also looking for anyone who may be able to foster Archie if we cannot find a good home in the short term. If you think you can help with fostering please fill in the form below and write in the notes about your fostering offer.
