Guinea Pig Today is leading the campaign to support National Adopt Rescued Guinea Pigs Month in March! Although quite a few people nowadays turn to shelters and rescues instead of shops or breeders when searching for their next pet, cavies are unfortunately often forgotten. Continuing education throughout the year will inform the community of homeless guinea pigs in need of forever homes.

The Mission
To educate the population on the many guinea pigs in shelters waiting for homes.
To introduce new piggy parents on the proper care of guinea pigs and why they make wonderful pets.
To find forever homes for the many homeless guinea pigs in rescues and shelters.
To promote campaigns that generate better welfare for guinea pigs year round.

We would like to share the informational pamphlet below, courtesy of Guinea Pig Today. Please click the icons to enlarge and read, or visit here and here to view the original full sized pdf.

If you would like to support the cause, GPT has a great article on what you can do to help. Anything from spreading the word, writing to legislators, or sharing your personal piggy stories would be greatly appreciated. It's time to give guinea pigs their share of the spotlight!
