Our latest micro-grant recipient of $150 is Kansas City Pig Rescue Network.
In a recent TV segment, they expressed being in a crisis due to the large number abandoned potbelly pigs thought to be “teacup” or “mini.” Here’s a piece by Best Friends on the truth behind teacup pigs and mini pigs.
Interested in a pig of your own? Consider one of the many pig rescues around the world. The above photos are a few of the adoptable pigs at Kansas City Pig Rescue Network.
