UPDATE January 2021

As of January 2021, Staffordshire moves into national lockdown along with the rest of England. This means that, unfortunately we have taken the decision to close the rescue to all but emergency surrenders until further notice.

We hope to soon open our doors again, but we are unable to offer an idea of when that may be.

In the mean time, stay safe, and thanks for your continued support!


Usually we always do a home-check before an adoption, but due to COVID-19 this isn't possible at the moment. So instead, as well as having to fill in our adoption form, potential adopters will be asked to send recent photographs of their setup.

When an adoption takes place the piggies will be passed to you after a chat on your doorstep. We ask if you can please carefully put the piggies in their new enclosure and return the carrier to us at the door where it will be disinfected back at the sanctuary.


We are taking in surrenders as usual (space dependent) but unfortunately you will not be able to accompany your piggies to their new accommodation (Merrypigs is run from the back of our house).

But once they are secure we will come back to the door to update you and can send lots of photos!

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer boar dating for the foreseeable future.
