Vote for LAGPR as your Rescue Hero!
We made it to the final of the Small Pet Select and are competing for votes to win Rescue Hero 2017 and much needed money awarded to the winner to feed and house all the guinea pigs. Currently we have over 700 guinea pigs and that number is going up each day!
An Exciting and Exhausting Few Weeks
Boy have we been busy these past three weeks since we took in all those guinea pigs. Babies are popping up all over the place each and every day there are births of the cutest little babies. Many of the pigs suffer from Ringworm and Mange and it has been non stop feeding, building cages, medicating and cleaning. Quite a task! If there are guinea pigs in need you know we will be there for them! Though this was a lot and yes we need help. Please consider donating. We have a set up a You Caring page to help us with the enormous financial burden.
How Many Guinea Pigs??!!
Animal Control of a small town in Humboldt County, CA requested our assistance with a hoarding situation of what they thought were 200 guinea pigs or so. We responded and drove the 10 hrs North On October 17, 2017. We ended up staying for two days because what we initially thought were 200 pigs turned into 700 once we started sexing and counting. We were quick to help and only then realized the enormity of this situation. You can make a donation through our special Paypal link here. Read the full story here.
On the news and we made it to The Dodo!
The Dodo contacted us and compiled a little video, we are so excited about that! And we were on the news this wheek! ABC7 came and filmed a segment on the Norcal 700.
Right now is a great time to adopt!!
We have never in our 20 or so yr history have had this many guinea pigs and this many babies available. They are all adorable and different looking. Tons of Abby's and long hair X's. Do you have two girls? Add a third! Three or more is in fact the most ideal number. We recommend this for girls, boys are a little harder to manage if more than two. Go to the website and fill out the adoption application and then make an appointment. Also don't forget to make a free health check appointment. We advice you bring your pig (s) every 8 weeks for nail clips, boy cleanings and a general health scan. Thank you SO so much for your support. The piggies are truly thankful and a lot of them would not have been around anymore if it wasn't for you!
