Happy Holidays, everyone!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us here at 4 Lil Pigs n Buns.  We appreciate the words of encouragement, donations, volunteer & foster work, and adoptive families that have come our way over this past year.

After handling many adoption inquiries and education opportunities over the past few weeks, our volunteers are taking time this Christmas weekend to spend time with family, our own pets, and our foster animals.  Thank you for understanding that all of us have holiday obligations as well.

We would also like to reiterate the reminder that many rescues are sending out this season - a pet is a member of the family - not a holiday gift.  Please take into consideration the care and attention that a new furry family member will require.  We implore everyone who is thinking about giving an animal as a gift to not purchase a pet on impulse - especially if the recipient is unaware that they will be given a living creature.  If you would like to give an animal as a gift, why not give a certificate offering to sponsor the adoption of a homeless animal?  The recipient can then make the decision to bring a pet into their life (after having researched proper care, of course!)

Pets deserve loving forever homes - not a home which will tire of them after a couple of months.  And of course, if you have put thought and research into adopting a furry friend, every shelter animal would love to receive a forever home this holiday season.  4 Lil Pigs n Buns will be resuming adoption interviews after Christmas.  Thank you for your support, and have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season!

This beautiful girl, Princess, found her forever home a couple of years ago!
