Donation to Humane Rescue Alliance

Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!

That’s probably NOT what our new favorite duo, Laverne and Shirley, are saying from the comfort of their pig-friendly enclosure at the Humane Rescue Alliance!

Pigs & Pugs Project is delighted to sponsor the pair’s stay with HRA, a contribution which helps to offset the costs of food, toys, medical & preventative care and in this case, extra special bedding!

Note that while pig ownership is illegal in the District of Columbia, these cuddly gals are looking for a pig-friendly home elsewhere. You can contact HRA adoptions department to learn more.

Donation to Kansas City Pig Rescue Network

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.

You’re Invited: Pigs, Pugs & Pinot

On Sunday, April 28 from 3-5pm, we’ll host “Pigs, Pugs & Pinot” at Tyber Creek in Bloomingdale (84 T Street, NW, Washington, DC) and welcome your four-legged furry friends for fetch on the patio (all pug-loving pups welcome). For those looking for additional family members, we’ll be joined by the Humane Rescue Alliance, who will have adorable adoptable pups (& cats) available, as well. Special guest Charlotte the potbelly pig from Life with Pigs Farm Animal Sanctuary will also be gracing us with her presence.

Included in the $25 ticket* is a glass of pinot (or whatever grapes you fancy), vegan nibbles, and goodies for your pup (and of course the doing-good feeling!). We hope to see you on April 28th!
