Originally started in 1998, Pigs4Ever.com was a pot bellied pig home page named Dottie's Den. Although just a couple of pages at first, the site continued to grow and thrive, attracting more and more visitors. As we added more information and pictures, requests for yet more information and pictures kept coming in. A never-ending circle. We are happy to bring this information to the world's animal lovers, and pot-bellied pig lovers in particular. Additionally, we have incorporated our Healthy Pigs Store for your convenience!
Our mission is three-fold:
Your help and support is greatly appreciated.
ALL pet pigs should be spayed or neutered before sold. They should be at least 6-8 weeks of age and weaned from mom.
PLEASE do your homework before getting a pig for a pet. Make sure that you are zoned for pigs as pets. Is there a vet in your area that will see mini pigs?
Please make sure that you're ready to commit to this pet for the next 12-15 plus years. The truth is that the potbellied pig is only a good pet for those who take commitment and responsible pet ownership very seriously.
"Potbelly pigs are not products you just throw away when you get bored or become overwhelmed. They are intelligent, caring creatures who depend on you for their survival.
PLEASE: Do your homework BEFORE getting one. Don't be stubborn or worse, ignorant. Know the facts before you get into unexpected problems."Richard Slayton
