Meet Timbit

Timbit and her buddies need a home of their own! Timbit came into care in July 2021 with her friends Inky (ID#503242), Charles (ID#503245) 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 Timbit and her buddies have been working on losing weight and becoming comfortable around people, doing lots of enrichment activities and positive reinforcement training! Timbit is the littlest of the group, but don’t let that fool you into thinking she’s got a small personality! Timbit is energetic and vocal – she likes to start her morning with a power-walk around her yard, and always hums (grunts) a little tune as she goes! Even though she’s still a little shy of people she’s very curious, and always ready to go exploring! Leave a door open and she’s eager to poke her nose out to see what’s on the other side. Timbit is definitely the adventurous one!

Timbit and her 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 their 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.
