The ad posted on January 23 urges people to socialize with their 100 rescued pigs so they can find their respective forever homes with ease.
If you're someone who adores pigs, here's a chance to cuddle them for a good cause. Taking to Facebook, a South Carolina farm animal rescue service recently posted an advertisement seeking piggy cuddlers. The ad posted on January 23 urges people to socialize with their 100 rescue pigs, so they can find their respective forever homes with ease.
According to New York Post, Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary encourages people to spend some time with their 100 "adoptable residents so they can move into out adoption program with ease." Now, these potbellied piggies come from a group of 550 who have been reportedly rescued from a terrible hoarding situation in Kentucky. To get them accustomed to loving homes, people have been asked to socialize with them in the form of belly scratches, conversations, and some yummy cookies, because what can be more adorable than that.
Talk about a dream job, eh? Speaking to WLTX News, Cotton Sanctuary's executive director, Evan Costner, revealed that these amazing pigs don't demand too much socialization and that one can "spend about an hour at a time with them three times a week, within a month, they’re generally totally ready to be adopted." He added that "they’ll be rolling over for belly rubs."
Now, if you're looking to adopt one of these cuties but are hesitant about doing so you need to know that these potbellied pigs are "much quicker to house train than a dog," according to Costner. "As long as you have about a quarter-acre of space for them, a good-sized yard for them to enjoy, they’re fine." Until now, 400 of the 550 rescues have already been blessed with a forever home and the remaining await the same. The response to this offer seems to have resonated with quite a few who expressed their delight for this amazing opportunity.
Facebook users Scarlett Ashlynn Parker shared her happiness and wrote: I’m so interested! I have a rescue pig of my own who is 6! Another, Chrissie Chirico, regarded this opportunity as her dream job and stated: This is my dream job!!! I want to cuddle all the piggies and take them all home! ❤️❤️ Then there was Susan Baiad who was keen on traveling to the location and cuddle with the animals even if it was for an hour. I would love to volunteer for a day when I visit family in Charlotte ! she added. However, not every piggie lover lives close to the location and some expressed their dismay. Timothy Sanker wrote: Darn, I wish I lived close by, I'd be there in a flash! Ah well, for those lucky enough to enjoy these special piggies, enjoy!
