100th Post & March is Adopt A Guine Pig Month

Seems like we just got started (back in August) and so far we have adopted out 54 piggies, though 3 have come back. Not a bad percentage in my mind though.

So I thought I would post some updates for the 100th post. We have taken in around 60 guinea pigs, a couple didn't make it, many babies did not due to the stress on their moms, and we have done some vet trips. We have traveled to Fort Drum, Cortland (and further south), Oneonta and Albany. The only place I haven't gone is up north on the other side of the state.

We are cutting back because in July we are expecting our 3rd child. Our apartment is small and we need some space, though we will continue doing rescue. So far our worst cases were very skinny pigs, and another who lived on cedar her whole life with horribly long nails. These are besides the cases where guinea pigs have died.

We have gotten a lot of help and even some donations when people are adopting. It's been fun and it was sad to watch some of the cutest, or unique ones go.

Adopt a guinea pig month. This month (march) is adopt a guinea pig month and I encourage anyone who is interested to contact a local rescue/shelter to get a guinea pig. If you have friends or relatives I would be happy to help them find a local place where they won't get sick, unsexed cavies. (Those darn pet stores).

Special Notice:

Guinea Pigs are very social animals. If you are considering adopting one, please consider having more than one for improved health and personality.
