MARCH—Celebrate March with a squeal—it's Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month! Many animals besides cats and dogs find themselves without loving homes, including guinea pigs. If you have the resources to adopt, consider contacting a shelter or rescue group near you to see if there are any guinea pigs available. Many large pet stores encourage impulse buys of these and other small animals. The purchasers may then find their new pet’s needs too inconvenient. Also this month, encourage everyone to try vegetarian or vegan dishes to celebrate the Great American MEAT-OUT.
