C.P.P.A. was founded in 1989, making it one of the oldest potbellied pig clubs in the country. It began with a few new pig owners in the San Francisco Bay Area getting together to discuss this wonderful new pet. It was decided that they should create a club.
From just a handful of people, this club has now grown to be hundreds strong. Our members come from all over California, the United States and Europe with the majority living in Northern California.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about potbellied pigs as well as a referral rescue for pigs in need of new homes. Information that we receive about potential pig adoptions or surrenders from areas other than Northern California will be forwarded to rescue groups located in the appropriate areas. We have an emailing list of over 600 people worldwide. We send out informative, fun, educational messages throughout the year. If you would like to be included on our emailing list, please send us your email address, your name, and the city, state and/or country where you are located, to:
As a volunteer organization we have no paid employees. Our C.P.P.A. volunteers help C.P.P.A. on their own time after working their regular jobs. So please be patient with both your E-mails and your phone messages.
Pigs aren't our whole lives...They make our lives whole.
