Adoptable Mini Pigs in Tennessee are looking for a home! Elizabeth Buttram has been saving displaced pigs in her community, getting them veterinary care, healthy, socialized, and screening appropriate adoptive homes. She currently has 9 gorgeous mini pigs available for adoption. All boys have been neutered, but the girls need spayed. If you would like more information on these mini pigs or would like to inquire on adopting, please send an email directly to their foster mom and caretaker, Elizabeth at [email protected]

The American Mini Pig Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Receipts for tax purposes will be provided upon request. We will be assisting in the spay costs for these 5 girls.  Veterinary costs for mini pigs are astronomical, but the cost of adopting out intact pigs is far worse.

Help us help them! An estimated $750 is needed to fund the spays for Tugboat, Ruby, Penelope, Blossom, and Fat Amy. These spays will literally save their lives as it eliminates the serious threat of fatal uterine infections and cancers. It also ensures they won’t suffer the life that was before them, a life of breeding by unscrupulous owners, creating more “throw away” pigs that will eventually be left to fend for themselves. Help us spay these 5 beautiful young ladies to give them a chance at the happy, healthy, life of a beloved pet. If you are able, please donate directly through PayPal here and note that your donation is for the Rescue Advocates Spay Fund. 

Auction Time! In addition to direct donations, the American Mini Pig Rescue is organizing a fundraising auction to cover these spay costs.

Why: 100% of proceeds and donations will be used to fund the spay surgeries of these 5 adoptable mini pigs. If excess funds are raised, those will be set aside by the nonprofit to fund future spays. There is NO shortage of mini pigs in the community needing spayed. All money raised will be used specifically for mini pig spay surgeries of pigs in need.
