I currently own 7 acres in Rome, Wisconsin. Some of this is fenced in for the pasture and to allow roaming and grazing. I moved to Rome from Milwaukee so I could become more involved with the Pot Bellied Pig.
I have taken in many pigs over the past 2 1/2 years. I was involved with the North Carolina Nightmare and help Pigs As Pets with the LaBelle rescue. I have been successful in placing pigs into new loving forever homes.
All of the pigs here have been surrendered. They all come with their own story. Most of the stories are sad ones. Other have come to me due to misinformation and lack of commintment by the owner.
Pigs Home N Rome is a small shelter offering rescue, adoption, vet care, and education. Along with a permanent home for those pigs who have been abused or are just unadoptable.
I have been Incorporated, and my 501c3 filing status is pending. I have No Staff and No Volunteers. Donations of blankets, veggies & fruits, hay & straw are always welcome. I operate on a daily basis as an "Out of Pocket". I get no funding or assistance. Shelters grow out of the heart, but must be run out of the mind and the pocket book. It is truly a labor of love.
You can help the pigs that live here by ordering 3 home-made goats milk, all natural pig shaped soaps For every order of 3 piggie soaps our shelter will recieve a $2.00 donation. The soaps come in a variety of scents.
I also have 3 boarder's and offer boarding your beloved pig as a way to keep your pet pig. All pigs have an inside area for bedtime. During the day the radio is tuned to their favorite oldies while playing in an outside pen/ weather permitting. In the summer all pigs have pools to play in and keep cool, along with shade trees to rest under, and access to the inside area. During the cold winter months heat lamps, blankets and layers of straw are offered. Rates for boarding are $5.00 per day.
You can view the pig(s) that I have for ADOPTION
