NAPPA has evolved even more than that over the last several years to try and protect mini pigs in general. We have dedicated time and resources to other members in the mini pig community and offered help and support via email, phone, our FB page and sometimes, even in person. We are amazed and extremely thankful at the level of support from our pig community. We will continue to bring you up to date information and our website will be every changing, so please check back often for new information. Please reach out to us if there is a topic you would like to see discussed or researched, we have an excellent team of people on board with more than 40+ years of combined experience. As we continue with the legacy left to us behind a great name with an even better reputation, remember that as you see more and more websites popping up to discuss pig specifics. Do not be fooled by a fancy named pig. There are other breeds besides potbellied pigs, but they are, by far, the most common breed in homes as pets today. We love and care about all pigs, not just potbellied pigs. Please help us continue on the journey to help pigs of all kinds by becoming a member and an advocate for pet pigs out there nation and worldwide.

How you can help NAPPA
NAPPA is a Non Profit organization that relies on public support. Support can be in the form of a monetary donation to the memorial, education, or shelter fund. Or, if you would prefer the hands on approach, please contact a pig rescue in your area and volunteer or donate your time. NAPPA can always use advocates interested in helping us with ideas to better the potbellied pig community. Our goals and visions have evolved over time and we want to promote education in the mini pig community. With that being said, we ask that you spread the message about pigs and how great they are, but remind people to do their research before getting a pig. We all know there is a teacup micro mini myth circulating about pigs and because people aren’t prepared for a 100lb pig, they often end up in shelters and rescues. Rescue. Foster. Research. Transport. Donate. Volunteer. Educate. Advocate. Become an ambassador for NAPPA and help us spread the message that teacup pigs do NOT exist.
