HUMANE SOCIETY WORKERS ARE USED TO PUTTING ANIMALS UP FOR ADOPTION… BUT THEY CURRENTLY HAVE A PECULIAR SITUATION IN SAN MATEO COUNTY. K-P-I-X FIVE’S JACKIE WARD EXPLAINS. MEET VIVIENNE! THIS 24-POUND PIG IS CURRENTLY AT THE PENINSULA HUMANE SOCIETY IN SAN MATEO .. AND SHE’S LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME. TAKE SOT: BUFFY MARTIN- TARBOX / COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER, PENINSULA HUMANE SOCIETY AND SPCA “She’s extremely healthy, she is a female, and she’s very friendly, very sweet.” (:05) COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER BUFFY MARTIN-TARBOX SAYS VIVIENNE WAS FOUND ON THE STREET IN SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, SO SHE’S A BIT OF A MYSTERY. THEY THINK SHE’S A POT-BELLIED PIG, BUT DON’T KNOW FOR SURE .. AND DON’T KNOW OLD SHE IS OR HOW BIG SHE MAY GET. TAKE SOT: BUFFY MARTIN- TARBOX / COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER, PENINSULA HUMANE SOCIETY AND SPCA “If she’s a baby, there is a possibility she could reach up to 150 pounds, so just be aware of that. This isn’t really an animal that you could keep in a flat in San Francisco.” (:13) AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY THAT WHOEVER ADOPTS VIVIENNE, ADOPTS HER FOR THE RIGHT REASON. TAKE SOT: BUFFY MARTIN- TARBOX / COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER, PENINSULA HUMANE SOCIETY AND SPCA “We will not adopt her out to anybody who would consider her as a source of food. She’s she’s a pet. She’s a domesticated pig and she’s a pet.” (:08) FOR HER OWN DIET, VIVIENNE PREFERS ONE THAT CONSISTS OF PIG PELLETS, FRESH VEGETABLES, AND ALFALFA HAY. SHE ALSO ENJOYS THE OCCASIONAL BELLY RUB. AND IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES, A PIG IS A PERFECT PET FOR YOU BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAIR, NOT FUR. TAKE SOT: JACKIE WARD / @JACKIEKPIX TO ADOPT VIVIENNE, THE ADOPTION FEE IS ONLY $100. AND LOOK, SHE’S SO SWEET! IN SAN MATEO, JW, KPIX 5. (:09) IF YOU’RE GOING TO GET IN AN ACCIDENT, WHY NOT HAVE IT HAPPEN
