Come Meet Ben the Pig at Lakeshore PAWS Adoption Event

BenBen, an adorable mini pot-bellied pig, will be hogging the attention during a Lakeshore PAWS adoption event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 22 at the adoption center, 405 Elm St. in Valparaiso.

This smart little guy is trained to use a litter box, loves attention and petting, and of course loves to eat, well, like a pig.

Also plan to visit our cat room, the nursery with our new puppies, and of course leave time to play with dogs in the large agility space.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and give tours of the kennel facilities.

If you have any questions, please call 476-PAWS, visit us at or like us on Facebook.
