Pigs are not flying just yet, but they’re making it easier for those who do!
LiLou the five year-old pigand her owner Tatyana are bringing joy and peace to travelers at one of the nation’s busiest airports in San Francisco, California. The first the world has seen- this therapy pig is as bright as they come, capable of doing tricks and offering endless hugs and cuddles to those who choose to partake.
She has been seen with bright red painted toe nails and wearing a pilots uniform, just incase you miss her.
She’s already taken countless selfies, offered hundred of hand shakes–or hoof shakes– and spent a decent amount of time at departure gates, comforting those who have anxiety when they travel.
The guest services manager at the San Francisco International Airport told Reuters:
“When we first launched the program, our main goal was to relieve stress for our passengers. However, what we have found is we have formed a connection with our passengers and it’s been totally amazing,” Kazarian said.
Needless to say, San Francisco may have a new mascot, so if you’re traveling in California, look for LiLou and take a selfie or listen to her play her little piano with her hoof and snout.
American Service Petswas so touched by LiLou’s efforts– they are now offering 1PetAlliance readers50% offof their Emotional Support Animal Letter.
