Adopt a Pig


I'm Eddy the pig and you can adopt me!​

I started life on a petting farm, and as you can imagine, I won a lot of hearts! I thought things were going well, but it turned out that once I was no longer considered cute and cuddly, I would end up on someone’s dinner plate. 

Luckily for me, I avoided this fate. Amongst the many folks I’d charmed at the farm were two lovely ladies from Scotland. In the nick of time, they stepped in to rescue me, and before long I was on my way to Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary!

How many people can adopt a pig?

There is no limit to the number of people who can adopt one of our animals. This allows as many supporters as possible to connect with and learn about our rescued residents through the adoption boxes and email updates.

Can I adopt a pig as a pet?

Here at Goodheart, we have seen first-hand just how many pigs end up at rescues when owners of pet pigs get out of their depth. Our rescued pigs are the lucky ones, but sadly many pigs bought as pets end up being sold for slaughter as rescue places are very limited and owners don’t always know all of their options. 

By adopting Eddy the pig through us, you can feel good knowing you’ve helped our rescued animals, without the added responsibility that comes with owning a pig as a pet.
