Adoption Program

Being a parent isn’t for everyone.  Patients, caring and understanding don’t always come easy.
But what IF all the love and attention was returned over and over again?  Pigasus has an adoption program that may be of interest to you.

Love is all you need!

Got the love? Use our contact us form here and lets get started!

We also have several older potbelly pigs that would be an “Awesome Companion” for a Senior Citizen or Special Needs child or adult. Please contact us for information on these, as Older is good, Patience is already there and their hearts are full of love.

Also noted: Any placement or adoption from the Pig-A-Sus will be followed for the lifetime of the animal. We have representatives in all area’s along with animal controls. We do an intense background check to see if there is any animal abuse and REQUIRE a statement of Veterinary care from your Veterinarian. You can contact us for an “Adoption Form” if you like. 
Please visit the website at www.pigasus.org  or email us at pigasus96@aol.com 


We have several good veterinarians located on the Eastern Slope that we recommend for Potbelly Care and hopefully you will be able to use one of those for the care of your Potbelly Pig.

Thank You for considering adoption, and please BEWARE OF THE MINI-TEACUP
POTBELLY PIG SCAMS. NOT ALL ARE SO LUCKY TO BE RESCUED AND CONTINUE TO HAVE AN AWESOME LIFE AND GIVE BACK THE LOVE THAT THEY ARE GIVEN.

Ready For Adoption

Ms. Oink

Ms. Oink came from the Colorado Springs area and is a LOVE.
She weighs apx. 55/60 pounds
Female coming 2 years old
Loves belly rubs, ears scratched and just to be part of the family.
She is SUPPOSE to be spayed. We have noticed since we have her several times a bit of swelling and have not been able to detect a scar on her stomach. We have been trying to reach the prior owner for Veterinarian Conformation of the spay. 
This will have to be confirmed before she is adopted.

She spends time outside in all types of weather, but at night she is brought 
into the vet room or “mud” room off the house and kenneled for the night. 
She sleeps 10 to 12 hours in the kennel. She loves cats and “tolerates ” the new 
border collie puppy trying to head her” to turn around.

She has never had an accident in the house or kennel. She is current on all shots, but will have a “Mycoplasama pneumonia shot” before leaving for a new home.

Ms. Molly is a Juliana pig also know as a potbelly pig. She is Gray and black and very friendly, but also very “Bossy” with other potbelly pigs or dogs.

She is Apx. 2 years old. very well mannered, housebroken, loves the outside & loves to ride in the truck. She is spayed She weighs apx. 65/70 pounds and current on all shots. She will have a Mycoplasma pneumonia shot when she is placed.

She scratches herself in the snow and share a community hut with 2 other larger pigs.
She has a “buddy” Little Man” who travels everywhere with here.

She also came from the Colorado Springs area. We have a representative who will be able to answer questions about her if you are interested.

When she is in Vet Room she does use the litter box or goes to the door to be 
let outside. We would like to place her and “Little Man” together if possible, 
since they are 100% bonded.  She does NOT like bigger dogs

If interested in Ms. Molly, please send email to pigasus.org. We will forward you to our Colorado Springs Representative and she will contact you.

Little Man

"Little Man" (Small white with Black head on right)

This is "Little Man" when he was rescued in Denver, and after vet care there.
(Compare this to him now).....

Little Man came to us stunted, starved and full of mites and ticks. Thanks to 
a very alert school teacher, she was able to save him. We were contacted and 
worked with her to get him treated in the Denver/Golden area , to the 
point that he could be transported to us.

When he arrived, he even after vet treatment was one of the worse case 
of “Mini pig abuse” we had ever seen. We immediately took him to our vet and developed a eating program and health program for him. Then we had 
another “Angel” in rescue step in and wanted to do something to help him. 
She has 100% paid for all his medical and also Started a legacy of 
the “Abused Mini-Pig” for Education.

We are still not 100% sure of letting him for adoption. He will have to go to a very SPECIAL home with Restrictions. Since he began to gain weight and to 
become healthy, he was adopted by MS. Molly who very seldom 
lets him out of her sight.

We are thinking that this may have to be a 2 pig adoption.
He has been given a clean bill of health, when he arrived he weighed 13 
pounds and now he is a “Whooping” 55 pounds. We had to let him grown 
very slowly and he has reached his MAXIUMUM weight. His legs have grown 
to support his weight, but will not hold more. His intestines have started 
to develop from the stunted stage to normal. He loves to run and play 
with the other pigs.

If you are interested in an adoption of a “Special Needs” Potbelly let us know, 
but please remember he has been abused 1 time and with the help of 
2 other wonderful people who opened their hearts and wallets and a very special companion, Ms. Molly, he is now pretty normal..

PS: In case you are wondering, Little Man is the small white with black head on the right, Hammey is the also mini pig who grew on the right. We tell “Little Man” 
look in the mirror, this is what you should have looked like!~!~”

11 months ( will be 1 year on Easter)
She is spayed, vaccinated wormed
Very friendly, loves to give kisses
litter box trained
SHE WILL BE A LARGE POTBELLY PIG.
HER MOTHER WAS IN A “Piggy Mill”

She loves food and will have to be watched on weight her entire life or she will be exceptionally  large  (175/200) 3’s

Jenny Lou

I rescued a human today.

Her eyes met mine as she walked thru the Pig-A-Sus, peering apprehensively into the pens. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I swished my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my side I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my pen. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my profile card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against her legs to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my hoof to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my pen gate opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped to her side.
I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down to visit. So many more are out there who haven’t visited the Pig-A-Sus. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.

We thought that the following needed to be published so we don’t forget that pets are family too.

Dedicated to all the wonderful pets who have come through rescue, the rescuers and volunteers along the road to life, and to all the unselfish and loving adopters who open their hearts and homes to one of these innocents…..

Dedicated to all the wonderful pets who have come through rescue, the rescuers and volunteers along the road to life, and to all the unselfish and loving adopters who open their hearts and homes to one of these innocents…..

I adopted your pet today…

The one you left at the pound;
The one you had for ten years
And no longer wanted around.
I adopted your pet today…
Did you know that he’s lost weight?
Did you know he’s scared and depressed
And seems to have lost all faith
I adopted your pet today…
He had fleas and a little cold;
Guess you don’t care what shape he’s in
You abandoned him I am told.
I adopted your pet today…
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies,
Or was there NO reason he couldn’t stay
I adopted your pet today…
He doesn’t play or even eat much;
I guess he’s very sad inside and
It’ll take time for him to trust.
I adopted your pet today…
And here he is going to stay;
He’s found his FOREVER home
And a warm bed in which to lay. I adopted your pet today…
And shall give him all that he will need
Patience, love, and security,
So he can forget your selfish deed.
