The program’s goal is to help socialize these adorable residents of the sanctuary
You’ve also already heard that pigs are exceptionally smart animals. Smarter than kids up to 3-year-olds, dogs and even some monkeys, many piggies are intelligent and curious. Not only that but pigs are also known to be very social.

They actively interact with each other-scientists have recorded more than two dozen different vocalizations! Furthermore, these animals are incredibly sweet and adorable so you would have to try hard not to love them.
A farm animal sanctuary in South Carolina recently announced that they are looking for volunteers to “help socialize [ the ] adoptable animals so that they can easily move into [ the ] adoption program!”
One South Carolina farm animal sanctuary needs volunteers to cuddle their piggies
“Do you want to help make a huge difference in the lives of the pigs of Cotton Branch?” the farm animal sanctuary writes on their Facebook. “Come help socialize our adoptable residents so they can move into our adoption program with ease! Belly scratches, cookies, sitting with, and even just talking to our pig friends can get them ready for their new home.”
As mentioned above, pigs are extremely social animals and one of the most important components of their overall wellbeing is socialization. Nonetheless, piggies need to get used to their routine and social signals before living full-time with humans. This is the section where volunteers participate.
And to prepare them for adoption
Of course, people were here for it, because who wouldn’t want to give lovely piggies belly rubs and feed cookies?! The “Pig Socialization” project’s volunteer calendar quickly filled up the slots before March! Thankfully, the sanctuary provides volunteer opportunities of all sorts for people who want to help vulnerable animals.
