It's been a busy weekend for everyone, so I'm finally finding time to sit down and post again. Scotchie's adoption is pending; a family is interested in her as a Christmas gift, and they do have experience with guinea pigs, so Scotchie is biding her time until she goes to her new home. I've been handling her as she is still a bit nervous, but she is really sweet and sooo cute!
No one has shown interest in Mister, but we have been handling him as well and I have a new picture I will post soon. I have had many people ask if I could take their guinea pigs, but unfortunately I still do not have room. Other people have wanted to adopt anywhere from 2-4, but I don't have any multiples available, so I have been referring people to CNY Piggies, as I know Mary has quite a few still!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving; ours was pretty uneventful. I had to work on Black Friday but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be; I think shopping is worse than working at this point! :)

Adopted! Dora and Joslin

Well, I let my Peruvian girls go tonight, but the application was excellent and I know they went to a good home. Right now we are back at 28 guinea pigs. I was supposed to get three new girls yesterday, but we got the two because the youngest daughter was attached to her long haired girl, so that one stayed behind.
I have not gotten my work schedule for the weekend, so I'm still not sure if I will be at the adoption event in Oswego this Sunday. If not, oh well...I have pictures of the available piggies up now, so hopefully we can find them good homes.

I hadn't planned on doing this, but someone is very interested in adopting Dora and Joslin, my two young Peruvian girls...they have already filled out the application and really want a pair so they can keep each other company. They will most likely be going next week.
In the meantime, I got a call from someone looking to rehome three females (two shorthair, one long). At first I had to say no, but once I realized two would be adopted, I called back and told them that if they could just wait until next week, I could take them. As I always say, it's like a revolving door around here!
I am also hoping to be at the holiday adoption event on Sunday, November 21, but right now my new job has me working every Sunday, so that may not be possible. I will try to get back out to TSC once I get the new girls next week.

One Year of OCGPR Website!

I went back to look at Prescott's picture, and found that our website was launched on October 22, 2009, so we have surpassed the one year mark! Thanks to everyone for spreading the word and supporting the rescue because we always need your help. Ever since the website/blog was launched, we have had a HUGE uptick in inquiries and adoptions. I can't thank everyone enough for all the donations, help, etc. that have made this rescue a success in my eyes.
