Betty White

Yorkshire Pig
Arrived: 2022-09-14

Betty is one of the smartest pigs we've ever met - she loves solving puzzles, especially when those puzzles are her stall doors that can lead her to new adventures! She's also a young pig in her 'toddler' years, so we ask that you be careful when visiting her - she can sometimes mistake fingers for carrots!


Betty loves play dates with her friend, Libby, sunbathing on her lanai, and running through the Heartland pastures.

About Betty White

Betty is a transport truck survivor. In May 2022, when Betty was just a tiny piglet, she jumped or fell from a truck most likely headed to a "nursery barn" which is the second to last stage in pork production. Instead, she landed on the Interstate, and even though she was bruised and banged up, she managed to evade the sweet Samaritans who were trying to keep this tiny piglet from running into traffic. They finally caught her, and they kept her safe and loved before realizing just how quickly these pigs grow. They desperately needed a home for Betty before winter, and we were honored to be able to help. Betty was brought to the UW Veterinary Hospital for her spay surgery and vaccines, and officially arrived at Heartland on September 16th. She's currently on stall rest until she's healed from surgery, so for now, it's all about letting Betty decompress and find comfort in her new sanctuary home. (photo by Beth Skogen)
