Fern

Potbelly PigRescued January 19, 20219/13/2020 – 10/1/2021 Fern was brought to Piggins and Banks by Sussex County Animal Services in the Richmond area as a bonus pig rescue (she tagged along the trip with Bruce and Onyx). She was a sweet piglet who took right to the routine at Piggins and Banks of knowing when mealtimes are and how to get on our good side for a treat. As a piglet she was a great friend to older pig Bertha and kept her company. Unfortunately Fern came down with a respiratory illness and despite our best efforts and vet care, she rapidly declined and passed away. Her death shocked us greatly and she is missed by us and all the other pigs here.

Lucky

Blue Butt and Spot Mixed HogRescued June 26, 2021 Lucky will grow to be the biggest pig here at Piggins and Banks. He is not a miniature pig but a farm hog and will grow to be nearly 800lbs! While our primary mission is giving a home to miniature pigs that have been kept as pets and are no longer wanted, we have a soft spot in our heart for pigs that are born with the ultimate goal of being slaughtered which is why we decided to save Lucky.
