Help us save Pigs & Paws

Personal message

We're Pigs and Paws, one of the largest pig havens in the world. We currently provide a safe home to 300 piggies and 30 doggies.

We started taking in unwanted, abused and abandoned piggies and doggies, and give them a safe home, allowing them to live out their happy lives as naturally as possible.

We started off with one pig as a pet in 2004, but soon realized that there was a growing need for a pig sanctuary in South Africa. Too many people were buying piglets from pet shops and breeders without realizing the challenges involved in owning a pig.

Piglets are often falsely sold as "mini pigs" and then soon become too big to have in residential home, and are then abandoned by their families. A piglet as young as 3 months old can become pregnant, and breeders use this to their advantage when selling piglets.

Pigs are actually herd animals and prefer the company of other pigs, they also live to be up to 15-20 years of age, making them a life long commitment.

Feeding and caring for 300 pigs and dogs is an expensive task. We are currently falling behind on our food and vet bills and urgently need help.

We Would like to:

  • Build more shelters
  • pay our food bill
  • pay our vet bill
  • start a sustainable food growing system

    Any donations would be much appreciated to help us continue to care and love our giant family.
