For the month of May--

We will be fundraising for one of our own. Marsha is a beautiful person, inside and out, whose home was destroyed in a tornado. Her pigs and rats were possibly killed, her daughter is on oxygen.

Please send checks, made out to Marsha Weaver, to Shevaun Brannigan, 700 Professional Drive, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20879. Reference Marsha in the memo line.

Envelopes must have my name on them, instead of Marsha's, otherwise they will not arrive.

Click below to donate--this is going to the SAGP paypal, so I can keep track of how much we've raised. There is no goal. Please donate as you can.

Thanks to all of you for understanding our deviation. Marsha is just like you, she loves piggies and donates to SAGP, as well as other rescues.


$11,473.11 raised in Paypal, $2485 raised in checks/Cash, $50 in giftcards (Walmart), TOTAL: 14,008.11! excludes checks not yet received and donations made directly to Marsha's paypal.

A link to the wonderful stories on Weavers Pigs, many of them rescued.

We don't know if any of the piggies or ratties survived.

Guinea pigs were used as healing animals in Peruvian culture. May Marsha's good piggy karma bring health and luck to her and her family.

Hello everyone,

It is a rough time indeed for the Weaver family but people from all across the world have joined together in an effort to make things somewhat easier in the ways they can.

TheCozyCavy and Marsha are well known in the animal community and many people have been wanting to help out.

I am currently working on two projects, neither of them involving monetary issues so I am spreading the word so that those who wish to participate, may.
Basically, I am going around collecting messages from everyone across the web and putting those messages together in a book/keepsake of sorts to give to Marsha. So many people have gotten involved that there are messages scattered everywhere and I am trying to regroup them.

If you would like to be part of this, simply send your message at:

Please put "Weavers" in the subject.

I am also doing the same thing for the vet who has taken care of the Weaver furries during this time. I will be collecting thank you messages and also assembling them together in a book/keepsake. This will most probably be sent to the vet along with a gift with the help of the GuineaLynx forum

To send a thank you, simply email your message here:

Please put "Vet" in the subject.

I couldnt send much and it's probably a drop in the ocean of this tragedy, but I hope it can make a little difference. I hope Marsha and her family will be able to go through this, and that the fur babies will be too, the ones who have been saved.
