The RSPCA is hunting for a home for a pig called Boris which has been in care – for over 700 days.

Boris was rescued in East Anglia in 2018 and taken to a private boarding yard for 713 days while the charity searched for a space in an animal centre.

He is now at West Hatch Animal Centre in Somerset where he can now begin his search for a permanent home – preferably with some female friends.

An RSPCA spokesperson said: “We only have a limited number of centres with space to take care of farm animals like Boris so we often use private boarders to help take care of them while we wait for a space to become available.

“Boris made quite an impression on his carers and they were very sad to see him go, but really pleased that he was off to find a loving new home.”

It took seven hours to transfer the 270kg Gloucestershire Old Spot across the country to the Somerset-based centre.

Bel Deering, West Hatch Manager said: “Boris is a lovely, gentle boy who enjoyed spending time with his pony pals in boarding.

“He’s a real character and really deserves a forever home where he’ll make a wonderful companion.”
