Current Events/News
    **URGENT** Since our last update we have taken in another 67 guinea pigs from a local animal control where they had been taken from their previous owners home. As you are probably aware this really stretches us to the seams and being most of these pigs are very young, donations for food and hay (alfalfa based) are really needed. To donate you can click on this link: Donate for Food, Bedding and Hay for The Guinea Pigs!

    We need volunteers to help!! Contact Jennifer at for info about helping
