The person who was thinking of taking Rodney and Buttons adopted Herman instead..I'm glad because no one else has been interested in him, and he really is a sweetheart.
Dora and Joslin should be arriving tomorrow evening (we'll see what happens with the weather!). In the meantime, Martini has not been eating his produce so I am keeping an eye on him. I took him out this morning and he seems ok but looks as if he's lost a little weight. He is one of our older piggies and losing weight is a sign of old age.
We also very suddenly lost Twix..again, older, about 5, but he showed no signs of slowing down. I'm concerned about his cagemate, Jack, who has been spending a lot of time in his igloo but is still eating, etc. We will keep you updated on everyone.

More Piggies Being Returned

Rodney and Buttons are back, and we just got word that Dora and Joslin, our two Peruvian girl babies, are on their way back as their owner is also moving. I'm not sure if their pictures are still on our site, but they are on the OCGPR page on Facebook. Dora is solid gray, Joslin is solid black. They are still very young, and I'm hoping to find someone interested before their current owner moves.
HOWEVER, we do have someone coming to look at R&B this Friday, hopefully..she had adopted Buttercup and is interested in adopting from us again once she returns from vacation. Keep your fingers crossed!

We just got word yesterday that Buttercup, who had gone to her third adoptive home, suddenly passed away with no signs of illness. She was one of our worst neglect cases and had a spunky personality; we are so sorry she is gone.
Blanche got adopted the day after the Canine Carnival.
Herman is still available but may be adopted late next week by Buttercup's previous owner.
Rodney and Buttons have returned after their second adopter was forced to move to a small apartment that had no room for a 2x3 CC cage. I will be taking new pics of them soon and posting them for adoption; this time I would like them to go to a PERMANENT home.
We are still waiting to hear from Juan's pending adopter, who has been out of the country but has filled out her application and come to see Juan once already.

Again, I apologize for my laziness with this is an update of what's been happening the last week and a half:
BLANCHE has someone coming out to meet her this afternoon. I took her and Herman to the Canine Carnival yesterday and handed out some applications, but no one got adopted that day.
HERMAN is still available. He is fine being a bachelor now, although he could possibly be a companion for another male.
BOXIE is living with Joe after Moe died. Joe is very old, and has accepted Boxie as a companion, so at this point Boxie is still listed as available, but I think they may be bonding. Boxie could also be a companion for another male as he is still quite young.
We did get some donations at the Canine Carnival and let a lot of people know that we exist and can either help out or offer up guinea pigs for adoption. We look forward to attending next year!
