Following is a happy story from a happy adopter!
Dear Lycoming SPCA Staff,
We adopted a guinea pig from you on Oct. 21, 2011. We've since renamed him Jack. Our girl (spayed), Fiona, had lost her cagemate and was grieving for her friend. I can't express how happy we are about bringing Jack into our family. He and Fiona get along famously, they're quite the couple.
Jack has become a favorite at Cornell U, the exotics staff adores him. He was neutered and recovered in record time. He now loves veggies and hay and even yells at me for not moving quickly enough at dinner time. He zooms around their cage every night as we tuck them in.
I received your newsletter today in the mail. I see that his previous "owner" has been found guilty, thank goodness. The picture showing the cages broke my heart. I immediately picked Jack up for a snuggle. I can't believe he once lived in those horrible conditions, he's so loving and trusting.
My husband and I wanted to thank you for everything you've done for these guinea pigs. Small animals are often forgotten and over looked. We've sent in a donation in his honor. Thank you all and happy holidays!
