Pokey the Pig — JK Employees Adopted a Customer’s Pet Potbellied Pig

JK has conducted plenty of unique moves. We have moved Presidents, we have moved “haunted” furniture, we have even moved carbonite Han Solo. But moving a family with a pet potbellied pig was as unique as they come. In 2012, JK Moving Services was moving a customer with a pet potbellied pig, Pokey.

Around lunch time today, three of our employees — Shanna, Christa, and Jessica — were walking outside, enjoying the summer-like weather, when they noticed a group of small kittens spread out in the middle of the road!
