Potbellied Pigs and the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw

Calgarians are advised not to acquire any new potbellied pigs as they are not permitted under the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw 23M2006. Potbellied pigs acquired prior to March 2006 may be permitted, provided that the animal is appropriately cared for, and that keeping the animal does not pose any environmental concerns or nuisances in the neighbourhood. A permit may also be obtained under the Livestock Emotional Support Animals​  permit process. Complaints arising about potbellied pigs are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.​​​​​​​​​
