Thanks to the efforts of the ASPCA, March is Adopt A Rescued Guinea Pig Month -- and we intend to make a lot of noise on the subject all month long! In addition to our planned appearance in West Simsbury on March 24, and the articles published in Pets Press, we've doubled the size of our Web site with new care information, new links, new checklists and other information in our Adoptions section, and new profiles and photos in our Success Stories and Sanctuary Pigs sections.
Be sure to check Pig Notes frequently throughout the month as we'll be publishing a lot of new articles -- and we hope you'll share your thoughts and experiences along the way by posting comments to the articles. You'll also want to check our Guinea Pigs 101 and How To Spoil Your Guinea Pig pages over at Squidoo all month. Please consider supporting the rescue by ordering some toys and supplies for your guinea pigs through those pages (we get royalties on every purchase initiated through the product links there).
You also can support the rescue by registering for and using IGive for all your online shopping (even online shopping for office supplies!) -- this month and throughout the year.
And, most importantly, If you know of anyone thinking of adding guinea pigs to their home, please encourage them to adopt -- not shop!
