Welcome to NAPPA

NORTH AMERICAN PET PIG ASSOCIATION

Entering it’s 27th year in existence, NAPPA continues to grow.  Recently NAPPA has gone through some growing pains and has made some internal changes.  We wish to welcome the new board members and thank all those for stepping up to ensure NAPPA can carry on it’s mission and goals, while best serving it’s members. 

Moving Forward: The North American Potbellied Pig Association was established in 1989 to preserve and protect “Potbellied Pigs”. We are now expanding our mission to include all pet pigs”.

NAPPA’s new name is: North American Pet Pig Association”.   It is still “NAPPA” and the website is the same:”petpigs.com”.  We will always keep our original logo out of respect for and in honor of potbellied pigs because after all they started the pet pig movement thirty years ago.

  • NAPPA as a service organization continues to move forward.
  • NAPPA will continue to “preserve and protect” all pet pigs.
  • NAPPA will continue to provide educational information and assistance while concentrating it’s efforts toward the betterment of all pet pigs.

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!

Turn Your back yard into a piggy paradise
Ready. Set. Play.
Root, root, root
Pigs love to root. So set up a specific spot where she can root to her hearts content. Fill an area with sand or soft soil, and let her explore.
Quality time spent outdoors is great for your pig and gives ample opportunities to discover, root, and explore. If you install a doggie door so she can go in and out at her leisure. It might take some work, but designing a backyard suited to your pigs needs will be worth it in the end.
Pet pigs are extremely smart, which means they can get bored very easily.
What’s a pigs’ dream backyard without the perfect toys! Here are a few top picks for backyard play.
1). Busy ball- a must have for your pig
2). Rooting box- you can make a root box for your pig. Build a box out of plywood that’s about 4 inches deep and about 2 feet by 2 feet in size. Fill the box with hay and food or treats like cheerios for your pig to find. Your pig will love her root box because rooting is a natural instinct of pig.
3). Large diameter PVC pipe with thick walls make fun tunnels for pigs
4). Kids toys that cannot break off
Now that you have plenty of toys for your pig, enjoy hours of fun playing and building a better relationship with your pet.
