Therapy Pig Excellence
The therapy pig excellence award. Therapy pigs are trained to offer attention, comfort, joy, empathy to those in need. These mini pigs go out into their community spreading smiles and laughter. They are intuitive to those who are quietly suffering. Pigs can connect deeply with humans even in a short term visits. They give more than they know to those that they visit.
Schools, library readings, nursing & retirement homes, veterans events, school fundraisers, and so much more. They seek out opportunities where they are needed. These visits are incredible opportunities to share the truth about mini pig sizes and their high level of care. Every visit is a win for all.
