Question: Can you refreeze pork?

Answer:

Yes, if you thawed pork in the refrigerator, and can't use it right away, you can safely refreeze it. Just place it back in the freezer within a few days of thawing. It might be a touch drier when you use it (due to the second thawing), but it will still taste great.
