Welcome to NAPPA

NORTH AMERICAN POTBELLIED 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. 

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!

Hi everyone! My name is Ana! I am new here and happy to be here! I wanted to share with everyone a few digital drawings of mine!

The cute little brown Kunekune pig is my little Frankie! Sweetest little kune ever! I got Frankie from a kunekune breeder here in NC some of you may even know her Cyndi Berry! Frankie turned 1 yr old in March.

The second black and white piggy is my Miss Piggy! She is a potbelly pig. I got Miss Piggy when she was 4 days old and knew absolutely nothing about pigs. Miss Piggy turned 2 yrs old April 4th.

The other piggies are from clients that have sent me pictures of their pigs for me to draw and order tote bags or coffee mugs through my shop. The piggy Sausage was ordered as a tote bag but my customer has not received the tote bag yet I just placed that order for her but she should have it soon and will post pictures for me!

About us:
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 Potbellied 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.
