Fred and Mali aged 5 and 7 years, are a couple of barrows (de-sexed male pigs) looking to find their forever home. Fred is a Queenslander by birth and was flown over to WA, while Mali was purchased from a family in Northam. Their current owners have become increasingly busy, and have found that they no longer have the time to dedicate to the pigs.
Both boys are very friendly and sociable, and like most pigs, they love a good tummy rub! Although they are both gentle pigs, Fred is the alpha male. Mali currently has an area where he is fed so Fred doesn’t steal his food.
The pigs will be vaccinated before handover to their new family, and an adoption fee of $50 each applies.
QUICK REFERENCE LIST:
NAME: Fred & Mali
AGE: 5 & 7 years
BREED: Wessex Saddleback & Cross Breed
HEIGHT: 50cm (approx.)
TEMPERAMENT: Friendly and sociable. Fred being the dominant of the two.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Pigs need a lot of attention and would be suited to a family that has time for playing and cuddles. These boys need to be fed separately otherwise Fred will bully Mali out of his food. They do require a secure yard that can not only keep them safe, but to protect areas of your garden that you do not want demolished.
ADOPTION FEE: $50 each

* Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.
All suitable applications are forwarded to the current custodian for consideration, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss your offer further. Please understand that it may take a few days for us to respond to you depending on the amount of applications received, and it is never a case of first come, first served with animal adoptions, as we have to do our best to locate the absolute best homes for the animals.
