About the Campaign

Pot-Belly Pig – Ada Lovelace

This poor pig has gone through multiple owners. First owner re-homed her because they didn’t have time for her. Second owner had a large dog that attacked her, third had small dogs that attacked her and another one that had small children that didn’t get along with her. Glenna had been on social media reading about Ada and knew she had to help her. She was going on her fifth home within a year. Glenna is an educator to the public on pigs and they don’t stay small and they take a lot of work. Now Ada is with her forever home Glenna with two other pigs. Currently, they are kept separated due to Ada not being fixed. Their house is pig proof and they have made ramps for the pigs to go up and down stairs.

Ada is a little over a year and weighing in at 63 pounds. She does have a small mass that Glenna is concerned about. She wants to make sure it is removed before it has the chance to do anything. Ada is on a special diet at the moment to keep her on the trim side. She is getting her pig pellets with veggie scraps. 

Keeping a Pot-Bellied Pig website says “Pigs are very intelligent, and pot-bellied pigs are quite trainable, much the same as dogs (they can be house trained, leash trained, and will learn a few tricks); however, their intelligence can make them a bit of a handful. They are curious and playful, but also headstrong and sensitive. They will become easily bored and possibly destructive if not provided with enough activities and enrichment.

From day one, the owner should be setting the rules and enforcing them. Consistent rules, praise for good behavior, and correction/redirection with lots of repetition and patience will help produce a well-mannered pot-bellied pig with a good relationship with its family.

And like pet dogs and cats, neutering or spaying is a must with pet pigs, to control those raging hormones.” 

Below is the vet estimate for Ada. She will be getting her mass removed and getting fixed at the same time. It is important to fixed both of these issues as soon as possible because the vet will not spay her if she’s over 100 pounds. Glenna and her husband run a small business that is seasonal. They didn’t expect to take in Ada last month and need some help funding her surgery.  (Click the blue link for the estimate) — >Piggy Estimate

    Because we believe that it is the responsibility of humans to take care of the animals left behind and because we love Glenna and Kyle

    Thank you everyone! We are so grateful for your generosity. When we picked up Ada she was so scared and not sure why she was losing her humans again. Today she is a very happy girl. She loves to play but also snuggle. Those snuggles are so special to us. She trust and loves us and we want to make sure she is with us forever.
