It’s great to hear that you are looking to adopt from Neville’s Nest! Please be aware that you should only request an application once you are ready for your piggies. To enable us to continue rescuing more piggies, we cannot ‘hold’ piggies for long periods. If your application is approved, we would normally ask you to collect your piggies within 7 days.

You will receive an immediate acknowledgment email, once your application has been received, if you don’t get it, then it hasn’t gone through!

If you are neutering your boar and looking to adopt a girlfriend, please ensure your boy has had surgery and is recovering well before applying.


Complete an online application form from the comfort of your sofa, by clicking here. Please ensure that you have also read the homing requirements before submitting your application form.

If approved, you will then be offered suitable piggies as they become available.

Choose your piggies, and discuss if any bonding is needed.

Pay adoption fees, and make any purchases from the online shop.

Complete the emailed adoption form and arrange to visit.

Collect your piggies - please remember to bring a carrier!

Coffee, Cuddles and Cake

For new adopters – or those who just want to meet the piggies! – we are now offering a session to come and spend time in the Nest at a time to suit you. You can get advice about adoption, or just chat about piggies! Refreshments are included and the suggested donation is £40 for 90 minutes. Drop us an email for further information and to book.

Cancellation policy for Coffee, Cuddles & Cakes
If you need to cancel your session and want to move it, or require a refund, this must be done with 48 hours notice, due to baking for your visit.
