Unfortunately,
WE ARE CLOSED
Except for
genuine emergencies.

**Please note, any piggies adopted from us MUST still be returned to us should you no longer be able to keep them, regardless of our closed status**

After a lot of deliberating, I have come to the sad decision to have a hiatus from rescue for a while, and will be closing Merrypigs to all new adoptions and surrenders as of 28/8/21, except for genuine emergencies.

It's not been an easy decision, but after 5 years of the heartbreak of losing piggies and seeing them in such awful states, there's only so much I can take! Also, in light of going back to college as a student veterinary nurse and working full time I'm just not able to keep up with the rescue at the moment - physically and mentally.

-

This is likely to be a temporary decision whilst I give myself a break and focus on my studies for the next 3 years. Of course we are still here for advice, and always for our previous adopters should they or the piggies need anything.

Thank you for all your support over the years, especially Helen at The Potteries! Merrypigs will be up and running again in the (hopefully not too distant) future!
