Hops

Sex: TBA

Species: Pig

Estimated Birth Date: 3/19/2022

Mama Oats and her babies Hops and Barley found themselves at our city shelter. These poor pigs were terrified and had a very uncertain future. Not many people go to the shelter looking to adopt a pig. But we had room so this adorable family headed to our ranch. Mama Oats now has the time to continue raising her babies and never has to wonder about their future again.

Mama Oats and her babies are very shy. We’re guessing they had minimal positive human interactions prior to arriving in rescue. We’re are working to build up their trust and confidence. They’re all great with other pigs and even get along with Ollie the goat. They will be adoption ready once they’ve been altered and can be adopted together or separately.

If you’re looking to add a pig to your crew shoot us a message at adoptions@marleysmutts.org.



  • Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook

  • Each pet will have its own profile here on the website

  • All pets will be spayed or neutered

  • All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date

  • Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)

It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.


We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.


It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.


If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.


Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.


If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
