NORTH AMERICAN PET PIG ASSOCIATION
***WE DID IT!***
Many thanks to each of you who donated to NAPPA’s matching fund effort to help Houston Mini Pig Rescue & Network. We just received a contribution of $20, making our total received $1500. Doubled that will give HMPRN $3,000 to use for food or other needs as they work to recover. We wish to extend special thanks to Joyce Aleckna of Happy Hill Farm and Animal Refuge for sending $700. We are equally grateful to Sharyn Meryl (Sammy the Hammy’s mom) for raising $600 from her raffle. Last ,but not least, we very much appreciate those smaller donors who made up the remainder, giving us a total of $3,000 to send to Texas!
Joyce Murdoch Aleckna Thank you for making the match so the money will make a difference for Houston
Patty Hunter Amazing! You all are such a blessing to us down here in Houston! ❤
Thank you all!
The North American Pet Pig Association, Inc. founded in 1989, is dedicated to providing education to enable pet pigs to have the highest quality of life possible. This mission aligns with the mission of Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center, Inc., recently closed due to the retirement of its president, Lana Hollenbeck.
FAREC and NAPPA have formed a partnership, whereby volumes of valuable material on the FAREC website will be carefully incorporated into the North American Pet Pig Association (http://www.petpigs.com) website.
The NAPPA board thanks Lana for many years of service and guidance to the pig community. Lana has spearheaded conferences, coordinated rescues of large numbers of pigs, worked with new sanctuaries, helped advance pig medicine, and more.
We also welcome FAREC supporters. We hope you will continue to receive the same high level of support from NAPPA.
North American Pet Pig Association Board of Directors
Preserving and protecting pet pigs since 1989, NAPPA has a love for all pigs, both big and small! We are completely run by volunteers, and have always been a non profit organization. All funds we raise go into helping pigs by providing emergency medical assistance for injured or sick pigs, spay and neuter funds, sanctuary grants to pay for straw, feed, and other supplies, sponsoring the Swine Medical Database, and so much more. We work hard to educate, whether it be pig parents or the general public who have misconceptions about pigs. Its our goal to enact changes in legislation to change pet pigs from livestock to companion animals, giving them the same rights and protections that dogs and cats are allowed. We advocate for adoption or rescue when you’re thinking of adding a pig to your family, and are here to provide a network of support with your new friend!

With the input, help, and encouragement of people from all walks of life, and from all over the United States and Canada, the North American Pet Pig Association (NAPPA) was organized in 1989, making it the oldest potbellied pig service organization in the United States. NAPPA is a non profit organization and holds a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service. NAPPA was organized specifically to preserve and protect the potbellied pig breed, with an emphasis on education. The activities of NAPPA are guided by the input, contributions, and energy of its members and directors. Membership in NAPPA is open to anyone interested in potbellied pigs, whether pet owners, potential pet owners, rescue/sanctuary, veterinarians, or just friends.
