There is a non-profit in Leesville, South Carolina that is calling itself a “safe haven for abandoned, abused, neglected, and elderly farm animals.” They are now putting out the call for help with their ‘piggy cuddler team‘ and you might just have found your dream job.
“We need help with pig socialization so our adoptable residents can move into our adoption program with ease! What is better than to cuddle with piggies?!?!” Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary writes on its website. They speak about how the people who cuddle pigs help them to prepare for adoption.
If you are over 18-years-old and feel that this would be a good fit for you, then you qualify to put in an application. Of course, you should also love pigs, considering that job description.
If you are not quite 18 but are over 16, you can still stop by and volunteer as a pig cuddler, provided you bring a parent or legal guardian with you.
The sanctuary does more than help care for farm animals and prepares them for adoption. They also help to educate the public about those animals as well.
“We educate the public on the conditions the typical farm animal lives in on factory and organic farms, and why farm animal sanctuaries are needed so badly in the US. We encourage compassionate choices in our everyday lives when it comes to what we eat, wear, and use for entertainment,” Cotton Branch wrote on their Facebook page. “By reducing demand for animal products, we can reduce the number of animals in need of rescue, and we can help reduce the number one cause of negative impact on our environment: animal agriculture.”

“We welcome everyone, no matter where you are on your journey of compassionate living,” the sanctuary added. “Every step in the direction of making a better life for even one animal is a step in the right direction and we acknowledge that effort.”
