Meet Inky

Add to favourites

Inky and his buddies need a home of their own! Inky came into care in July 2021 with his friends Charles (ID#503245), Timbit (ID#503243) and Mama (ID#503241). These pigs were all very overweight which limited their hearing and vision, had overgrown hooves and tusks, and were very itchy from mites. Since then Inky and his buddies have been working on losing weight and becoming comfortable around people, doing lots of enrichment activities and positive reinforcement training! Inky was the most mobile of the group at intake, and was interesting in exploring right from the beginning. He is a bit of an independent soul, and the most likely to head out to the yard even if it’s raining! Inky has lots of hobbies, his favourite of which is interior decorating. Sometimes you just have to move your bed somewhere new, you know? Inky knows it’s important to keep things fresh!

Inky and his friends all live together currently and would like to be adopted as a group so they can be together in their new home too! There is also a possibility of adopting their neighbour Greta (ID#532121) along with them; these five pigs originally came into care together but Greta needed her own space for a while, so she would need to live separately in their new home until she could be gradually reintroduced to the group.

Due to their continuing recovery from obesity and shyness around people, these pigs will need an experienced guardian who can continue their weight loss journey with them, and work with them to further gain confidence around people.

If you are interested in giving these pigs a home, please fill out an adoption application at: https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/equine-farm-animal-adoption-application-form/

Please ensure that your municipality allows you to have pigs and that you have appropriate indoor and outdoor space and fencing for pigs. These pigs are very clean and currently live in a stall with outdoor access during the day, which they thoroughly enjoy when the weather is good! They prefer to do their business outside, but overnight they have a “litterbox” area of shavings away from their straw nest where they go when nature calls.
