SQUEAL SQUAD ASSEMBLE: These three 5 month pigs ne SQUEAL SQUAD ASSEMBLE: These three 5 month pigs need our help. Charlotte, Wilbur, and Babe are located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Their owner has faced some major life challenges this year (cancer, divorce, and eviction) and is desperately seeking a home for these three pigs. Piggins and Banks have agreed to give them a permanent home here which means a long road trip for The Head Hog this coming Sunday. None of the pigs are fixed which means some heavy vet bills to come in the near future. If you are able to, please help by contributing towards their cause.

My Story

Born in Richmond, I was adopted by The Riddle Family in Winchester, VA where I was trained and certified by the American Mini Pig Association as a pet therapy pig!

I’m a pig who loves my family and was trained to be a member of the therapy pig program administered by the American Mini Pig Association. This means that I can visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, and other public places as a volunteer to provide therapy to others with comfort, affection, and attention.

To earn this certification I had to learn a bunch of tricks, including coming to my name, sit, stay, leave it, walking on a leash, gentle treat taking, and handling. My family also taught me many more tricks including shake, give a kiss, shut the door (I push a door closed), play piano (I play a little piano with my snout), and much more.

If interested, you can read more about the AMPA Therapy Pig program.
