ROGERS -- A piglet is looking for his forever home after waiting for almost two months for someone to claim him at the Rogers Animal Shelter.

The piglet, who staff members at the shelter named Pigglesworth, arrived March 31 after animal service workers received calls about a stray pig roaming Rogers, said Bud Norman, shelter manager. The shelter started receiving calls about Pigglesworth about a week before he arrived, Norman said.

Today was the last day for someone to claim him.

The piglet won't be available for public adoption. Shelter officials are looking to send him to a rescue center, Norman said. He is a gentle and loving animal who enjoys affection, he said.

Norman said he is unsure of how old Pigglesworth is, but does know he is young. Pigglesworth is a male Hampshire pig, one of the most popular breeds of pigs in the U.S., which grow to weigh an average of 600 lbs.
