Getting written proof potbellied pigs are legal before you adopt out.

I have felt the urgency lately to post this very important information to all concerned. When you read it hopefully you will see the dire need to do this. It is quite apparent to me that there is something definitely amiss  in the way some are placing their orphaned and new born pigs. I have more cases for zoning than I have ever had in the 20  years that I have been doing zoning of the potbellied pig. 25 new active cases just since spring to be exact. How can this be in this day and age? I asked myself “Why is this happening?”   I finally figured it out the main reason  pigs are going to court. They are being cited because someone didn’t get written  proof that it is legal to have them in their municipality  before they were sent to their new home.   Either the family called the zoning department and asked the person who answered the phone if they were legal or they or they were never told there was a huge zoning problem for the potbellied pig in the first place . Someone in my opinion is not doing their job correctly and It is starting with the breeders and the adoption networks . Just receiving a YES answer to the question of “Are potbellied pigs zoned in your area ?’ Is not enough proof. You all must start requiring  adoptive pig parents to produce a hard copy of the written animal laws for their town stating this fact in black and white. If you are one of the ones doing this then please Stop taking  any ones word...

New York City animal laws – Incorrect information!

It has come to my attention that ,because of miss information about the current New York City animal laws on some potbellied pig web sites , there have been potbellied pigs put in jeopardy. Make a note that the potbellied pig is NOT and NEVER has been legal to have in New York City. I am working directly with a New York Senator right now to change that law,but in the mean time do not sale or adopt any potbellied pigs to someone residing within the NY City...
