April 23, 2015: A quick call to Seneca County let us know that Hammer made his way to another sanctuary and was then adopted! He has found his forever home.
January 19, 2015: From the Humane Society of Seneca County- “On December 9, 2014 we had a three year old intact boar surrendered to the shelter. He was surrendered because he was purchased to be a breeding boar for the former owner’s sow, but he failed to do his job. Hammer, as he is called, then proceeded to continuously escape from his chicken wire enclosure and wander the countryside, leading to tickets for his former owner. Hammer is a good pig, but since at the shelter, he is spending most of his time in an isolated dog kennel. Thus he has started exhibiting bad behavior, such as charging our staff members and biting legs. Unfortunately in our area, there is no market for pot bellied pigs (earlier this year we had three pigs who took months and months to place). This noted lack of interest in our area, as well as his negative behaviors, is putting him at a very high risk of euthanasia. It is not that we want to, but we are just not equipped to handle a boar who is showing aggressive tendencies.”
Hammer will be neutered and will be ready to go to his new home! Please contact the Humane Society of Seneca County at 419-447-5704 or visit their website at humanesocietyofsenecacounty.org
