Thank you for your interest in purchasing a mini pet pig from This Little Piggy! On this page you'll find out everything you need to know about purchasing a mini pet pig from us. If you have any questions, please contact us for more information.
Step One: Get Informed
We ask that all potential adopters read through all the information provided on our website for information on care and understanding the behaviour of Mini Pigs. We would like to encourage families to be completely comfortable before purchasing their new family pet.
Step Two: Check Your Local By-Laws
Not all municipalities permit ownership of mini pigs as household pets. It is your responsibility to check your local by-laws and conform to local law. Mini pigs are incredibly intelligent and sensitive animals, don’t put them or yourself through pain of re-homing by skipping this important step!
Step Three: Complete and Submit an Application
As ethical breeders, we want the best for our piglets. This is why we screen all of the potential homes for our piglets. We ask that you take the time to fill out our piglet application in full with as much detail as possible. Once completed, submit the application to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review your application within 24 hours and contact you about the next steps.
Step Four: New Parent Package
Now that you have decided that a mini pig would be a great addition to your family, we ask that you read our new parent package while we review your application.
Step Five: Sign Our Contract and Pay Your Deposit
Once your application has been approved and you have read through our website and the new parent package, you will be asked to sign and return a sales contract. We will then make arrangements to secure your spot on our waiting list, or to purchase any of our available piglets.
A $100 refundable deposit is required to hold a spot on our waiting list. And an additional $400 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a selected piglet. Your waiting list deposit will also be deducted from the total purchase price of your piglet.
*** Please note that we allow 24 hours once we have sent out Piglet Choice/Selection emails for confirmation on your choice of available piglet. After 24 hours with no reply, we reserve the right to continue contacting those on the waiting list until all available piglets have been chosen and deposits received.
Step Six: Watch Your Piglet Grow
This Little Piggy will care for your piglet and prepare them for their new home. This will include having your piglet spayed or neutered, dewormed, litter box trained, and socialized. Male piglets will be ready for their new homes at approximately 8 weeks old. Female piglets will be ready for their new homes at approximately 8 weeks old. However, we have the right to hold onto any piglet for a longer time if we feel the piglet is not ready to leave our care.
**All piglets must be paid in full by 7 weeks of age

Step Seven: Welcome Your Piglet Home!
To help you and your family prepare for your new piglet, we will send you out our "Welcome Home Package". In this package we will explain to you every step on introducing your piglet to your family. We will also explain to you how set up an ideal "pen" for when your piglet first comes home. Also what to expect from your piglet over the first few weeks. We strive to make your introduction to Mini Pigs a wonderful and joyful experience!
