MSPCA Searching for Home for Amy, the Potbelly Pig
Amy is the chunkiest pig the MSPCA has ever seen so she needs a home with lots of space to roam and get some exercise.
According to the MSPCA, Amy the potbelly pig is "ready to be your new best friend." This sweet girl ended up at Nevin's Farm in Methuen, MA after being given up by her first family in Texas. According to her listing, her weight is a result of not being properly cared for in her first home where she was feed the wrong things and not exercised properly.
However, they say Amy has lived with cats, dogs, and kids and is wonderful with people and animals alike. While she is probably too large to be a "house pig", Amy would do well in a barn where she has access to the outdoors and lots of straw - which she loves. She has lost 20 pounds since coming to Nevin's Farm but needs a family that will continue to help her live a more active life.
The MSPCA goes on to remind people that are thinking of getting "mini pigs" for someone for Christmas to keep in mind that there really is no such thing as a "mini" pig and that baby pigs can grow into a much larger animal than you may be ready to care for.
If you or someone you know may be able to help Amy and give her a new home for the holidays, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-687-7453 ext. 6113.
