Any legitimate organization with a nonprofit status will have a board of directors in place. This board allocates where any money raised goes and also remains active in the pig community as well as the organization as it evolves. The board is responsible for many things, but one is to keep information as up to date as possible on the website, Facebook page as well as other social media platforms. Since this organization has been around for a number of years, the direction has changed quite a bit and the focus is now on promoting healthy pigs, ensuring owners have all the resources available to them and also protecting the breed. Every one of these board members is trying to do the same by advocating, educating, and volunteering. If you are interested in becoming a part of the solution to the pet pig problem we have in the US, let us know! We welcome new faces and would love to have you on the NAPPA Team.

Ana Garcia Director
My name is Ana Garcia and I am a director on the NAPPA board. I am owned by two wonderful pigs. I had no idea how to take care of a pig 2 yrs ago but I sure did learned fast, Miss Piggy is my potbelly pig and she chose me to be her mama. I got Miss Piggy when she was just 4 days old, Miss Piggy just turned 2 in April 2016. I am also owned by my precious Frankie. Frankie is a kunekune (kunie-kunie) pig. Frankie chose me as her mama when she was 3 months old, Frankie turned a year old in March 2016.
I love animals and it shows, here are my loving and loyal pets, Charlie my little Chihuahua is 8 yrs old. Charlie is my shadow following my every footstep. Oliver is my 9 yr old African Grey, he is a character and has a very large vocabulary but enjoys telling people to shut up, I need to teach him some manners. Tequila is my Moluccan Cockatoo that I rescued! Tequila is 8 yrs old and is such a gentle soul, she loves to cuddle close and have her head scratched.
I am also the owner of a small Graphic Design/Illustrator company. I have designed a few covers for Bestselling Authors as well as several logos for businesses. I am very honored to be part of the NAPPA organization, an organization that is truly for the wellbeing of all pig breeds.
