I have been to Vegaspigpets shelter and they take wonderful care of their pigs. They have some blind pigs and a pig that was rescued from a place that kept him in a horse stall. He had bad seizures but looks great now! I saw first hand how clean and well maintained this place is and the animals are so well taken care of!

I have enjoyed spending my vacations in vegas and going with VPP to clip hooves and be a part of the educational side of pig rescue .I do rescue in Ohio and love to help other groups .This group has vet referances for folks and can help the owners solve problems with their pigs They want pigs to be forever pets instead of the latest craze name as in teacup mini micro or whatever the breeders market them as . VPP can help you educate yourself and make sure a pig is the right pet for you !!!!
