Piggy Smalls is up for adoption.
Yes, a pig by the name of Piggy Smalls is looking for a forever home after she was found wandering the streets of East Palo Alto earlier this month, according to the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA (PHS/SPCA).
“Piggy Smalls is extremely friendly and will make a wonderful pet for someone who has the space she’ll need to thrive and live a happy life,” according to PHS/SPCA Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox.
The adult female pig was found by police on Nov. 8 at the intersection of Alberni Street and Laurel Avenue in the Peninsula city, according to the PHS/SPCA. She was scooped up and transported to the PHS/SPCA, but no one came forward to claim her.
Piggy Smalls checks in at roughly 45 pounds and could grow even more, according to the PHS/SPCA. She is considered to be an adult, but the PHS/SPCA does not know exactly how old she is.
On average, pigs can live anywhere from 12 to 18 years, according to the PHS/SPCA. The animals enjoy feasting on pig pellets, fresh vegetables and alfalfa hay. Piggy Smalls is said to be “very fond” of apples.
