About the California Potbellied Pig Association
The California Potbellied Pig Association 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 over a thousand members. Our members come from all over California, the United States and every continent except Antarctica 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 potbellied 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 1300 people worldwide. We send out informative, fun, educational E-news and 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.
"Animals are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations,
caught with ourselves in the net of life and time,
fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
