Pigs

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.

Sunday

Potbelly PigRescued April 24, 2021 Sunday came from the same rescue operation as our other pig Madison known as “The Virginia 155”. After giving birth to four male piglets, her and her babies were rescued on a “Sunday” (hence her name) from the farm by fellow sanctuary owner Lorelei Pulliam, and brought to us for her forever home. She is a big girl and one of the most protective mother pigs we have been around. She is a sweet pig now that her piglets have grown older.

Hank

Mixed Breed PigRescued May 10, 2021 Hank came to live with us after he became too much to handle for his previous owner in Culpeper, Virginia. He was always trying to escape, getting into trouble, and basically…being a pig! He is youthful, full of energy, and loves to take a roll in the mud pit on a warm summer afternoon to keep cool.

Peter Curleytail

Mangalitsa PigRescued April 4, 2021 Peter was born to be a pig sold for meat. A supporter of Piggins and Banks (wishing to remain anonymous) purchased him from a local farm. Instead of keeping the pig for meat, the supporter brought Peter to Piggins and Banks to live a fully, healthy, and happy life. Being a Mangalitsa pig, Peter will grow to be at least 300lbs in size! He will have curly, soft hair almost like a sheep. (Learn more about his history: Easter Pig will NOT be a Ham Dinner: Gets a Chance at Life)

Her owner passed away after battling cancer which left Journey in search of a new home which is how she came to live with us.
