It's not just goats that need new homes.

The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a bit of a pig problem.

According to a recent Facebook post, the group is hoping to find loving homes for more than a dozen swine which have overtaken the MSPCA’s Nevins Farm facility in Methuen. The news comes just weeks after the agency revealed it’s in possession of 46 goats which also need new pastures to graze on.

The MSPCA says that the location currently has 15 pigs on site, with another one set to join in the coming days, even though the farm’s pig barn can only hold six animals.

The agency admits that the Nevins Farm location is in a “pig pickle” since the group has been forced to find creative ways to house the animals.

“To say that we’ve gotten creative with housing pigs across our property is an understatement,” the MSPCA said in the post. “Peek in some of our horse stalls in the barn and you may find snoozing pigs in a blanket or be greeted by a pig strolling down the barn hallway!”

The group added that it needs help from the community in order to give these pigs a happily ever after ending.

If you’re in the market to adopt a new porcine friend, the MSPCA encourages people to reach out to the Nevins Farm barn staff.
