Hire a Mini Pig from us and have an adventure of a lifetime! The Pigfather offers a Unique Mobile Miniature Pig Experience (Education, Petting and Therapy Service) in London, Wimbledon, most of Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Essex, Hampshire, Berkshire and Hertfordshire for Private and Business Parties, Weddings, Receptions and Anniversaries, TV and Media, Schools and Nurseries, Care and Children’s Homes and much more…

The Pigfather is the pioneer of a brand new “Borrow My Piggy Service” – offering a completely unique, the only one of its kind in the UK, exciting opportunity to “borrow” our miniature piglets for a few days. The areas of Service are extended to other counties such as Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cambridgeshire and others. Please, enquire to see if we cover your area.

We provide a number of specific micro pig hiring services in London and other areas including therapeutic interactions with mini pigs in hospitals, hospices, children’s and elderly’s homes, respite centres as well as business offices. Our trained micro pigs can also  be hired for fun and educational encounters at fetes, schools, fares and assemblies, petting sessions for nurseries and pre-schools as well as appearances at both children’s and adult’s birthday parties.

Through therapeutic, educational and fun interactions with our micro pigs, we aim to encourage positive mutual relationships between people and animals. Bringing happiness to the lonely, ill or those going through challenging or stressful times is what makes us trully happy. So is the promotion of education about these wonderful animals.

In addition, we facilitate fundraising, awareness or business/corporate events through enhanced public interest and engagement, or appear on TV and Media advertising. Our micro pigs have featured in many promotional and commercial videos and we have worked alongside companies such as Flaregames (Tap Empire), Rise Media, Proseeders, LADBible, Hendrix Gin, ACA Live, Lion TV and Sky TV. 

Being the first company in the UK to have Certifed Therapy Mini Pigs via a Mini Pig Therapy Pet Certification Programme accredited by the AMPA, we consider ourselves to be the UK’s industry leaders in the area of Pig Training. More information on our Training Methods can be found here.

The PigFather was a key attraction at the Big Day Out for the King’s Centre this year. As I welcomed each of the 2000 or so guests I highlighted this attraction and soon there was a steady stream of parents and kids to see our two micro pig friends resplendent in bows. When I passed by on a couple of occasions there were lots of kids and adults with learning difficulties in the pen, hands on , really enjoying the experience alongside our little friends. Shaun thanks for making our BDO extra special this year

We booked a visit from Holly and Polly for my pig obsessed 8 year old son for his 8th birthday party. The boys were so excited and the mini pigs did not disappoint! Natasha did a wonderful job of introducing the pigs to a group of spellbound children. Her and her husband’s love and dedication to the pigs is obvious. It was the highlight of the party. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Pigfather to others (I already have!)
