Big Events in Brandon!!

All of us here at 4 Lil Pigs n Buns have been VERY busy prepping for some upcoming events!!  March is Adopt a Guinea Pig month, and we will hopefully end March with a bang!  We recently had a very large influx of guinea pigs - about 20.  Most of them came from a lady with a herd of 13.  She loved them greatly, but due to some major health problems was forced to surrender them.  We've also taken in a few from local humane organizations.  To celebrate Adopt a Guinea Pig month, we are having a big guinea pig event at the Brandon Petco next weekend!

Some of the new arrivals!!
We are so excited about next wheeeeeeeekend!!  BUT - if you are interested in adopting piggies next weekend, please get your adoption application in now so we have time to review it!  Please visit our website for more information.  You must be an approved adopter and have all your piggy supplies ready before taking home your new friends!  We will have all kinds of adoptable critters to meet!  We will have many guinea pig (and other small animal) supplies for sale along with baked goods and other fun things!  All proceeds will go toward the care of our fosters.
The event will take place Saturday, March 31st and Sunday, April 1st at the Brandon Petco (2434 West Brandon Boulevard  Brandon, FL 33511)  Hope to see you there!

In addition to all of the piggies that we just took in, we also took in around 20 hamsters and gerbils!  We have been asking for donations of cages, wheels, food, and other hamster/gerbil supplies.  Tranquility Trail Sanctuary and Little Furries Rescue both had some hamster supplies they weren't using and kindly offered to send them to us!  Please lend your support to these wonderful rescue organizations!  Thank you SO MUCH to all who have donated to our hamster/gerbil supply drive!!  We can still use more cages, hidey houses, and food, so feel free to spread the word!

Here are just a few of the tiny new arrivals!  There are plenty more!
The guinea pig event isn't all that we have planned either!  On Easter weekend, our volunteers will once again be at the Brandon Petco.  We will have many Easter treats available!  We will be educating the public about why buying a chocolate or plush bunny is a MUCH better idea than buying a live bunny for Easter!  We will have many adoptable animals available to visit (but will only be going home with screened adopters, of course!)  There will be balloons, face painting, plush and chocolate bunnies for sale, small animal treats and supplies for sale, and lots more!  All proceeds will go toward the care of our fosters.

Check out these fun Easter baskets that will be raffled off!
And look at this AMAZING bunny/piggy treat basket that will be available to win!
So again, join us at the Brandon Petco on April 7th & 8th from 12-4.  We hope to see you there!
