Millie's caretaker was losing her home
Millie came to us in January, 2024 from Fayetteville, NC where she had been living as an indoor pig for eight years. She was trained to use a litter box, so she rarely went outside. Her caretakers loved her very much, but when the gentleman of the house ended up unexpectedly in a nursing home, his wife was hit with financial difficulties and needed to sell her home. Unfortunately, this meant that little Millie would need to be rehomed. The day we picked her up was heartbreaking for the wife, but she knew she was doing the right thing for Millie.
A patch of woods to call her own
Today, Millie is continuing to learn how to be an outdoor pig. She's very curious about the beautiful world around her. We often see her gazing into the woods, admiring the tall trees and listening to the birds. We know that her adjustment to living outdoors is not an easy transition, but we're seeing more progress every day. As with all pigs, she will eventually settle right in and become a full-fledged member of the herd who spends her days exploring the sights and sounds of her natural surroundings in the forest.
