Brother Wolf Animal Rescue Sanctuary said Friday they are searching for foster or forever homes for more than 20 potbellied pigs in their care.
Brother Wolf said the pigs were abandoned at a cemetery in Tennessee.
Some of the females have also given birth while in Brother Wolf’s care.
Officials say all the pigs will be up-to-date on vaccines and spayed or neutered when adopted.
“Pigs may not be the right pet for every family, but you would be surprised what great companions they make,” said Denise Bitz, President of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. “Pigs are super intelligent, funny, charismatic little creatures and they make great indoor/outdoor pets.”
Bitz said pigs can be easily housebroken and harness trained. The animals also respond well to commands.
The pigs can live between 12 and 18 years. They require a fenced-in outdoor area.
