SCAMPP (Southern California Association for Miniature Potbellied Pigs) is a 501(c)3 organization formed in 1989/1990 and is the oldest potbellied pig association still very actively meeting and participating in community and educational events .....(more about our history) (more about our events)

BEFORE YOU GET A MINIATURE PIG, please do your research and EDUCATE yourself on the proper needs and care of potbellied (miniature) pigs. We help with education of proper needs and care of potbellied pigs. Pigs are NOT like dogs, and for the most part need to be kept separate from dogs if not fully supervised when they are around most dogs. Dogs are predators, pigs are prey. We have rescued many pigs that have been mauled by dogs, we have seen and heard of many pigs that have been killed by dogs. Please CLICK HERE and HERE for articles pertaining to dogs and pigs.

Despite all of those cute Instagrams you've seen, teacup pigs are not a breed of pig. In fact, teacups don't exist at all. Rather, "teacup" is a name breeders give everyday potbellied pigs that have been malnourished or inbred to stunt their growth.

There are many myths and misconceptions around so-called "teacup" pigs, so if you're considering adding one to your family, do your research first. Not only is it unethical to buy a "teacup" pig—breeders often use extremely cruel methods to achieve a smaller pig size—but doing so can have serious consequences for the health of the pig and your family. What's more, "teacup" pigs generally only live for about five years due to issues with their skeletal and immune systems that result from starvation and inbreeding. If you're considering getting a pig as a pet, look into these two common breeds: Potbellied Pig and Kunekune Pigs
