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!
There's a reason North American Pet Pig Association has been around since 1989. North American Pet Pig Association has been dedicated to the pet pig as a household companion.
NAPPA has been the standard for providing honest educational information and resources.
NAPPA believe's the pet pig is deserving of the same respect and love that all of us expect.
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 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.
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.
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!
Review from Guidestar
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.
I have been writing a column for NAPPA's newsletter for years. I enjoy being part of an organization that wants to educate the public on pet pigs.
I have been a friend of NAPPA since 1995. I've watched it change from so much breeding to helping rescued pigs. They saw and recognized the needs of the pet pigs. Our organization has watch as it has gone through some hard times and come out on top because of it values and commitment to helping the pigs. It really is a Great Non-Profit.
Such wonderful people and an amazing organization! The people of NAPPA are 200% all about the pigs. The love they have for pigs shows with their fight and pledge to help them, they truly are the voice that speaks out loud and clear for pigs. With compassion and love, they have conquered all obstacles that have put pigs in harm's way. NAPPA always comes through for them all.
