Find a free potbellied pig by searching for available animals at pig adoption organizations, such as The Pig Placement Network, Pot Belly Pig Rescue, Pig Harmony and Happy Trails Pig Rescue. Approach potbellied pig welfare groups, such as the North American Potbellied Pig Association and the California Potbellied Pig Association, for information about available pigs and other adoption resources.
Potbellied pigs are unique, loving animals that suffer due to widespread misinformation. This misinformation leads to uninformed, unprepared owners, many of whom end up surrendering or abandoning their potbellied pigs. This means it is fairly easy to find and adopt a potbellied pig, although it isn't always easy to find a free pig.
Contact nearby animal control departments to check if they have potbellied pigs for adoption. Animal shelters rarely offer animals free of charge, but the adoption fees are typically very low, and shelters use the money to cover medical treatment, such as a spay surgery. Adopters don't pay for the pig. They only pay for necessary medical services.
Sometimes potbellied pig breeders have older animals available for adoption. Breeders don't always offer these pigs for free, but you can often acquire an older pig for significantly less than the price of a piglet.
