Peppercorn (pig). Arrived 22 July 2015
This sweet little girl was picked up by a Perth municipal pound, but nobody claimed her and time was running out. Because of the urgency of the situation, we were able to help Peppercorn (then known as ‘Peppa’) find a safe temporary home away from the pound environment with foster carer, Donna. As we couldn’t find a safe permanent home for Peppercorn, we decided to move her to Happy Hooves, but she had to be spayed first – Donna so generously offered to drive her all the way to the vet clinic, then all the way to Gidgegannup – that was a BIG day of driving for both Donna and Peppercorn.
We already had a Peppa Pig here, so to avoid confusion, Peppa II’s name was changed to Peppercorn. She has a fun and friendly nature, although she does nip a little bit and can be a tad bossy. Donna worked with her whilst she had Peppercorn, to help overcome these reactive habits and made some great improvements.
Peppercorn will now enjoy a large paddock to dig and root in to her heart’s content, a cool wallow and shade for summer, and secure sheltered pen for winter and the companionship of eight other pigs, but most importantly she will enjoy the rest of her life free from harm and with lots of love and care.
Would you like to help us to take care of Peppercorn? One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.
