“Do you want to help make a huge difference in the lives of the pigs of Cotton Branch? Come help socialize our adoptable residents so they can move into our adoption program with ease! Belly scratches, cookies, sitting with, and even just talking to our pig friends can get them ready for their new home.” The sanctuary posted on their Facebook.

Pigs are extremely social animals, they need time with people to get used to all the social components of living with humans

This is where the volunteers come in. Your job would literally be to cuddle the pigs, feed them cookies, and even just talk to the piggies. Who wouldn’t want to cuddle adorable little pigs? Most people would love to do this, that’s why the “pig socialization” calendar filled up right away.

Happy Friday! Don't forget about our Auction for the Animals happening today until 7pm EST on Facebook! All proceeds…

Most of the pigs were rescued after being neglected and malnourished, which is why they need all the love they can get! Already over 75 pigs have been adopted through the program, but hundreds more are still in need of homes.

Pigs aren’t just cute, they’re also some of the smartest animals around

We’ve all heard about how smart pigs are, but did you know that they also communicate with each other better than most animals? That’s right, scientists have proven that pigs have over 20 forms of vocal communication. On top of that, pigs have a complex social structure and can even be smarter than toddlers, dogs, and many primates.
