The Peppermint Pig Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer operated, no-kill animal rescue. All of the animals up for adoption are kept in loving foster homes until they find their fur-ever homes. You can learn so much more about a dog's personality when they interact with people or other pets in a home setting all day long than you can from the outside of a cage. The Peppermint Pig also operates a thrift store (located at 8255 Beechmont Avenue) whose proceeds go right back into the rescue. They truly believe "you can't buy love, but you can rescue it". All pets receive their initial shots, deworming medication, flea treatments, are microchipped, heart-worm checked and spayed/neutered before they can be adopted. The Peppermint Pig is always looking for caring volunteers and fosters. If you have any gently used clothing or furniture you'd like to donate to the Pig's thrift store, please do so! It is tax deductible; just ask the clerk for a receipt. If you are looking for a new best friend or would like to donate your time, money or goods to this one-of-a-kind rescue, the Peppermint Pig volunteers, staff, and their furry friends wholeheartedly thank you.
