Giving A Big Voice To Little Friends


The Critter Connection, Inc., is a non-profit group dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned and neglected guinea pigs. Located in Durham, Connecticut, the rescue was started in early 2004 when its founder, Cindy Kuester, realized that abandoned guinea pigs in our state had nowhere to go.

The rescue has taken in more than 1,000 abandoned guinea pigs. We are dedicated to educating pet owners in the proper care of guinea pigs, providing valuable information about their unique dietary, housing, and health needs. Throughout the year, we sponsor Adoption and Care Seminars throughout the state.

This blog was launched in response to requests from our adopters and donors to share stories, offer tips and such for humans who own (errrr...are enslaved by) guinea pigs, and let them know what's going on with small animal rescue in general.

All posts are written by Whitney Potsus, the rescue's VP, except where indicated otherwise.

Alltop. We're kind of a big deal.
In June 2009, we were added to Alltop, a prestigious content aggregation site. We are pleased to be the first guinea pig blog -- and the first dedicated small-and-furry exotic pets blog -- to be included in their Pets category.

All content on this blog is copyrighted. Unless you have our permission to do so, please don't use, copy, or replicate graphics, piggie photos, and content from our site on yours. Quoting us with attribution and/or trackbacks is one thing -- plagiarism and misappropriation is something entirely different.
