What to Expect When You're Expecting a Pet Pig!
with Andy Theriault & Amanda Glenn
Only 2 hours left to register!
In this two hour course we will cover the joys and challenges of keeping pigs as pets. This is not a class for those interested in raising pigs for meat. Pigs are the most commonly surrendered animal at animal sanctuaries, and this class will prepare you to understand the nutritional, health, and enrichment needs of these smart, funny, affectionate animals before adopting one.
We will discuss keeping pigs at a healthy weight, hoof care, hygiene, and the required habitat for a happy, healthy pig. You will meet and interact with some of the sanctuary’s pigs, so come prepared to give tummy rubs, and wear clothes for the outdoors and boots.
Andy Theriault and Amanda Glenn started Darrowby Farm Sanctuary in 2019. They have given lifelong homes to over 60 animals since then, 22 of whom have been pigs.
