Let pet pigs (Otis) live in Saint Joseph MI

This petition had 3,053 supporters


Hi my name is Meghan Mathiau, I'm asking people to help me change the ordinance on owning a pet pig in the city of St. Joseph Michigan. We have owned our pet pig Otis for 9 months. Nobody ever complained about him even being in the home. Plenty of neighbors and neighborhood children have come over and loved on Otis. We didn't get a complaint until a police officer came to our home for a totally different situation and saw him through the window. Otis is loving and caring. Otis is clean and he lives inside and only uses a litter box like my pet cat. He is neutered and well behaved, loves all people and can be hand fed his favorite treats. Otis is super smart, Otis is like one of our children. He is on a schedule and he knows this schedule well. I would say he is almost like a toddler. I have poly cystic overian syndrome, I can not have any more children and he is like my child and he is like a brother to my kids who would truly miss him. My son has some emotional issues and Otis helps he stay calm and when he feels himself getting upset he lays with Otis for comfort. This could effect our whole family. I'm asking people please take their time and sign the petition to help change the ordinance so Otis can be safe and stay home with his forever home. If we lose this I have no idea where he may end up.
