NAPPA is a wonderful organization. I had my first experience with this group in 2007 when I brought home my first baby pot belly pig. They are caring, compassionate, supportive and have an enormous amount of experience, knowledge and contacts regarding pet pigs. They taught me how to properly care for my pet who is still here with me today leading a wonderful, happy existence. They provide financial assistance for spays/neuter, micro grants for supplies and feed, assist with zoning issues, help you find local pig vets and are a wonderful group of caring people.

Raising a pet pig is both rewarding and challenging. I am grateful to be part of an organization that helps provide advice and knowledge to pet pig owners. NAPPA allows me to share my experiences, as a pig parent, with others through a column in NAPPA’s newsletter. They are an advocate for pet pigs and their owners.

NAPPA is one of the best organizations out there always willing to talk to someone when in need of information on their pigs issue. Very dedicated to their cause and wanting to make sure all pigs are safe.

It is a pleasure to be associated with this wonderful non profit who goes above and beyond helping the pigs. They put the pigs first and work tirelessly to support them and help with fundraisers. I am looking forward to a continued relationship with them.

As a young start up rescue we were limited in our ability to help more pigs because despite having space; we simply didn't have additional fencing or shelters. NAPPA stepped in and did a fundraiser to assist with those needs and ultimately allowed us to double the amount of animals we could safely house at one time! We are forever grateful for their assistance and continued efforts to help pigs in need!

I am thrilled be be part of such a great organization. So many pigs need help. From sharing knowledge with new (and old) pig parents to paying for spays and neuters, matching donations in times of great need, helping organize transport, NAPPA has their hands in it all. To the benefit of many pigs!

I have known and worked with NAPPA since its conception. It continues to work for the betterment of the pet pig. If they say they will do something, they do. They all work hard to help the pet pig owner and the pigs.

NAPPA has raised funds and helped many individuals and groups with pig issues over the 20+ years they've been in existence. Whether it be financial help or advice given, NAPPA comes through. If they don't know the answer to a question, they search out the answer. Thank you, NAPPA, for your many kindnesses over the years. A lot of pigs are alive today because of your efforts.

For more years than I can remember, NAPPA has been waiting in the wings when help was needed with various projects with which I've been involved. Most recently, and ongoing now, is financial help involving the rescue of farm pigs, with NAPPA offering help toward medical and transport expenses incurred in getting them to their new homes. We have been so grateful for their help, as they have really been a cushion in these difficult financial times when other funds are rightfully headed for disaster relief. Thank you, NAPPA, for helping quietly with so many pig related projects. We are grateful.

We’ve had pot belly pigs since 2002. Back then there wasn’t very much information available, but eventually luckily we were able to connect with your original group UPPR.
Since you’ve become NAPPA, you’ve become even more helpful.
We truly appreciate the wealth of knowledge you provide for the online community.
Thank you for ALL you do!

I have only been a member of NAPPA for a few months now after very unexpectedly becoming a pet pig owner earlier this year. I cannot speak highly enough about this organization. The information provided by NAPPA has been a huge help to me in learning how to best care for and train my piggy. Anytime I had a question, or just needed to rant, NAPPA was quick to respond or lend a shoulder and give advice. The grant for spay/neuter was a HUGE help as we are financially strained. Piper Pigglewiggle and I couldn't be happier with our membership and I hope to be an active member for many years to come!

We run a small rescue that mostly is funded by us. We saw NAPPA doing a grant for winter bedding and applied. We got one! We've been following them ever since. They post daily on Facebook and they're always very informative. I enjoy reading every post. Recently, one of our elderly pigs was under the weather and they reached out daily to check on him. It truly meant a lot to us to have an organization such as NAPPA follow our struggles and share their concern. I'm a fan for life!

NAPPA has been helping pigs and educating their owners for years. As the owner of a private sanctuary, Camp Skipping Pig in NY, I was one of the fortunate beneficiaries of a micro grant. Being private, the 60 pigs here are solely supported by my income because I do not solicit donations, and the grant was greatly appreciated. More recently NAPPA assisted with the transport and neuter of needy farm pigs who are very difficult to place due to their size. NAPPA's contribution assured them a happily ever after. Please meet Wilbur, who is making his new home in WI after leaving NY. https://youtu.be/4vlAvmEOD_w

We were fortunate to be a recipient of a grant from this organization for feed. We have a small herd of rescused pot-bellied pigs that are totally dependent on our personal income. We deal with a mom & pop local feed store and the grant was a blessing for both of us.

I am honored to be associated with this organization that for decades, has worshiped the pet pig. NAPPA has evolved into a unique organization that fits a number of niches in the pig world that are in need of expertise. NAPPA's education program is now multi-faceted and wide-reaching, and it recently has begun to offer micro grants to both pet pig guardians as well as sanctuary owners. The move to reach out to support smaller sanctuaries is exciting. I can't wait to see how NAPPA will continue to evolve to meet the needs of pet pig guardians and sanctuaries in these changing times!

The North American Pet Pig Association has been in existence for over 25 years and during those years has come to the aid of pet pigs and their people thousands of times. They have quietly helped a handful of friends of mine and continue to offer assistance on a regular basis. They are a sound and caring group and the pet pig world is a better place because of their efforts.
