Bink, the teacup pig has been bounced around to several families before finding a forever home. His story is helping people realize the reality of owning a pig.
Bink, a newborn, went to live with a family who wanted a teacup pig. They kept him in a small dog crate and didn’t pay much attention to him and soon returned him.
The second family kept him in a small area, and Bink did not get any exercise. Bink was once again returned. Despite Bink’s third home being perfect, his owner got sick and had to return him.
Bink was taken to Tallgrass Parrot Sanctuary in Lecompton, Kansas and founder, Kail Marie, used Bink’s story to educate people on being a pig owner.
Tallgrass also provides forever homes to birds, they do not adopt, breed or sell any of the birds. Tallgrass works to educate people on how to care for captive and wild birds.
People think that a teacup pig is a small, easy to care for pet. The reality is that they need special care.
One of the main reasons pigs are returned is that many areas do not allow people to have pigs as pets. Don’t let the name teacup pig fool you either. Teacup pigs can grow to be between 60 and 100 pounds!
Finally, Bink has been placed in a forever home!
