Potbellied pig at Ralphy's Resort Animal Sanctuary

A Year of Heroes #4: Ralphy’s Retreat Animal Sanctuary, Norfolk, ON

Potbellied pigs are smaller than farmed pigs, and really cute as piglets – that’s the image most people see. However, farm pigs can grow up to 1000 pounds. What many people don’t know is potbellied pigs grown on average to 40 to 200 pounds – technically smaller than a pork pig, but often too big for the living room – which is why Ralphy’s Resort and Animal Sanctuary is at capacity.
