Sponsor a Guinea Pig for January!

Posted in Sponsor A Guinea Pig at 9:12 am by ACR&S


A little late, it’s time for another month of Sponsor a Guinea Pig! Jackie and Chester are a bonded pair of special needs sweethearts in the Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig Rescue. Jackie is missing her top teeth, and requires some careful dietary considerations, an expensive monthly dental procedure, and her beloved parsley.  She recently lost her long time guinea mate, Claude, and at the same time began going blind in one eye, requiring further medical care. Meeting Chester helped her immensely.

Chester is three years old, and also needs expensive monthly dental procedures, as he has a painful mouth infection. The poor boy is on daily antibiotics and pain meds. This doesn’t stop him from being a complete snuggler and cuddler with people, and cheering up Jackie again after her loss.

Due to a rough month, we missed showcasing December’s piggie, Peaches, who was rescued by our friends and neighbors at Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. Peaches is a five year old sanctuary guinea pig who wasn’t even supposed to live through her first night with the rescue! Each month Peaches’ medical care costs the rescue $134.50 – their December goal was to raise enough for two months of her medical care! That’s $269. This includes the office exam ($22.50) an incisor trim ($15), her Meloxicam ($23), critical care ($28), Cosequin ($11.50), Benazapril ($11.50), and Metronidazole ($23).


Although SAGP exceeded their fundraising goal for Peaches, we don’t want her to miss out! If you haven’t already done so, please visit Sponsor a Guinea Pig or MGPR to make a donation to her now, and to read the rest of her wonderful story!
