→ Esther the Wonder Pig

Have you “Liked” Esther the Wonder Pig? When her humans purchased Esther as a ‘pet,’ they were told she was a “micro-pig” and would grow to be 80lbs as an adult. Boy were they in for a surprise when Esther grew to be 400lbs (there’s no such thing as a micro-pig)! Esther is still treated as a ‘pet’ - she shares the house with her humans and two dogs and two cats. She has become an international sensation and an advocate for her kind. Her humans hope that Esther’s adorable and unique personality will cause people to re-think their choices about animal products.
