Tiny Petite Porker 2014 Therapy piggy give away!
We regularly want to give a piglet to a family that can benefit from having an amazing pet, such as our loving socialized lil pigs. We have decided to give a piglet each Christmas to a US Hero and also to give a piglet to a disable child each summer.
SORRY DUE TO FINANCIAL AND HEALTH ISSUES WE WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO DO THE GIVE AWAY. We will continue our giveaways once we are again able to.
there is NO monetary price to this give away and will we not offer to pay the price in cash this is a give away for a Petite Porker ONLY. We will NOT give the piglet to a family that already has a pig or a family that only the adult in the house hold is truly interested in having the pig. We want our piglet to go to a CHILD to Help a Child and bring joy to a Child in need. If you sent in an essay last year you will be consider in this years giveaway as well but invite you to send in another if you would like.
We will be posting pigtures with text to help advertise this event soon so keep checking back and remember to like us on facebook and instagram to help follow us more closely.
We could NOT decide on just one family....with all the families that sent in essays it became very difficult. So when we chose 3 families each having adopted more then one disabled child and loving and caring for these children we had to help each of these families. SO we are giving 3 Therapigs away this year. This giveaway has been completed. Thank you everyone for participating.
We Are currently JAN 2013 excepting essays on why you believe the disabled child in your life could benefit from having a tiny pet pig. Please email all essays to Petiteporkers@yahoo.com
1st SGT Tracy Gomez and his family added Boss who they renamed Champ to their family on Dec 22, 2012 Thank you Tracy, Alison and Dallas you are true Heroes!
This is the actual essay written by this great family and amazing hero.
My Daddy was a 1st SGT in the Army at Fort Hood Texas. He truly cared about his soldiers and says they were his “Army” family. I did not know my daddy before when he could walk on his own without his scooter or walking sticks…you see I was still in my mommy’s tummy when my daddy was blown up on May 27th 2007. He got hurt real bad in Baghdad when the tank he was riding in hit a big bomb. When he got out of the tank and tried to get away from the fire he couldn’t because his right side was gone. His soldiers rushed him to the Baghdad hospital because the blood was leaving his body too quick. The doctors in Baghdad put lots of bandages and blood back into my daddy. From Baghdad my daddy was flown to Germany. The doctors there did a lot of surgeries to make him well enough to get on the plane to the United States Hospital in San Antonio.
Six days after getting hurt my daddy arrived in San Antonio and the ambulance took him from the plane to the Fort Sam Houston Hospital…he had already had 14 surgeries when he got there. He had been in a coma since getting hurt. So when he arrived he couldn’t talk to my mommy, but she talked to him and rubbed his boo-boos and told him to hurry and wake up because I was going to be born very soon. I was due on June 17th
My daddy continued to have two surgeries every day at the San Antonio Hospital. After the 5th day the doctor told my mommy there was infection in my daddy’s wound, and they would probably need to take his leg off to stop the infection. The doctor told my mommy that daddy had lost too much blood in Baghdad and his heart stopped beating two times. When his heart stopped beating, so did his breathing. The doctor told my mommy that daddy didn’t get enough air to his brain so it died, and he was never going to wake up ever again. Mommy cried because it broke her heart that my daddy would never get to see, hold, or snuggle with me. My mommy and my daddy’s family spread the sad news and asked for prayers for my daddy to get better and wake up. The next morning after surgery the doctor told my mommy the infection was much better and my daddy’s leg could be saved! Family and friends continued to pray for my daddy and 12 days later …………..
MY DADDY WOKE UP!!!!!!!!
God saved my daddy, and he continued to get a little better each day. I was born on June 30th at Lackland AFB Hospital and released from the hospital on July 2nd, my daddy’s 41st birthday! The doctors let daddy come out of the burn unit long enough to hold me that day…My Aunt tells me that daddy kept saying over and over…I almost missed him; I almost missed seeing my boy….he was very proud
Because my daddy needed my mommy by his side in the hospital, my Aunt Trebell took care of me in the nearby Army Hotel. My daddy was in the hospital for about 6 months before getting better enough to come home. The doctors at the hospital called him the “Miracle” Soldier
My daddy and I are BEST friends….. we would like so much to have a pet, but we both have allergies. My Aunt Trebell has told me all about pet pigs and that they are allergy free! She has done lots of reading about how to love and care for a pet piggy. She and I have talked to both Mommy and Daddy and they agree that a piggy would be the right pet for our family. Mommy is a school teacher, but daddy is at home. My aunt is retired also, and she has agreed to come stay with our family as long as needed to make sure our piggy gets settled with a good routine here in our home. We live in a big house just outside the city with a big fenced back yard for our piggy to play!
Please consider Daddy and me for your Hero Piggy. We will love him and take good care of him!!
Thank you very much
