from TX Rescue

Miss Scarlet is a very special pig going through a hard time. This poor girl has a UTI, calcium sludge, urine scald, and on top of all of that, ovarian cysts.

Miss Scarlet, pictured at left with her sister Miss Piggins, needs a spay, which is an intensive procedure for guinea pigs. It requires an expert vet, which Texas Rustlers is lucky to have.

We are hoping to fundraise for this spay, estimated at $200 (including pain meds and antibiotics), as well as purchase her a cage blanket, costing about $50. The blanket will enable her feetsies to have a soft surface, and aid her urine scald and UTI recovery.

Aside from these requests from the rescue, I would also like to raise an additional $75 in case there are future issues for Miss Scarlet. I would like to establish a vet fund for this dear girl. The director of Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig Rescue had a difficult year in 2010, and I think it would be great if we could all take one worry off her plate. Our fundraising goal is $325.

Miss Scarlet was born in August of 2005, and she has been in the rescue with her sister since 2007. They are best friends.

Thank you for being an advocate for those who cannot help themselves.
Please pass Miss Scarlet's story and this site on to others.
