Success Story - Adopted Pals for Timothy!
"Our Timothy and the babies immediately liked each other. I knew they would be friends when, after several minutes, the two babies had wandered over to one side of the play pen, and Timothy scampered over there and nosed them aside so he could lie down exactly between them. Whenever possible all three of them like to be in a little huddle."

Sometimes, guinea pigs stay at the Rescue for years and are never adopted.
These piggies often have ongoing health issues, or they’re senior piggies who’ve been passed over by chance time and again. You can help! We would like to give these long-term piggies a few creature comforts they would have received had they been adopted and spoiled at their own permanent family home. Your gift to the Cuddlecup Campaign will go directly to purchase a gift for your sponsored piggy, and we’ve made a few suggestions above. In addition, you are welcome to stop by the Rescue on any Saturday to visit your sponsored piggies.

A Few of Our Special-Needs Piggies Helped by Sponsorship:
Emergency Rescue Piggies! Since arriving at the rescue, 4 of these mums have had a total of 10 babies, 1 of which has no eyes, 1 has only 1 eye, and at least 5 may be blind, plus there are 15 females on pregnancy watch.
Eye Removal, Abcess
George came to us from Houston because his caretakers were unable to provide the medical care he needed. He was not eating or drinking when he arrived. Several visits and bloodwork showed that he had an abscess behind his eye. He had his eye removed and all the abscess behind it cleaned out. He is on antibiotics and received daily hand feeding and fluids until he started eating again on his own.
Jackie (at right) was born without her top front teeth. She recently lost her cagemate and friend Chester, pictured here with her.She goes to the vet for treatment under anesthesia every 3-4 weeks for a Teeth Float to help her survive. What’s a “Teeth Float”? Guinea pigs’ teeth are growing throughout their lifetime. They normally are filed down with a good Timothy hay diet, but in many rescue cases, the teeth have become overgrown, broken and/or abscessed and require filing down, etc. under anesthesia. If left untreated, this condition can cause painful abscesses or even death.
Pain and Feeding Issues
Sweet Louisa has multiple issues: overgrown teeth requiring vet visits, Critical Care hand fed nutrition, pain meds, and sub-q (under the skin) fluids.
Trio has facial paralysis and can’t blink his eye.
Thank You, Sponsors!
