From Elise of Chicago, IL

About 2.5 years ago, my husband and I lost our hamster to ovarian cancer. We were devastated. After a couple of months had passed, we were ready to open our hearts and home to a new furry friend.

I met a lady with an amazing guinea pig at an animal shelter event I was working and began to do some research on them. Through Petfinder, we found The Critter Corral.

We were interested in adopting a pair and, during the adoption process, were asked if we would consider adopting a pair of three-year-old brothers who were having a hard time being placed as they were deemed "too old" for many other households.

As soon as we met the boys (Speedy Catastrophe and Buca di Beppo) we fell in love. They delight us every day with their morning wheeks to let us know it's breakfast time, cuddling with us while watching movies, and even entertaining us with their handsome faces when we take them to get professional "spa day" pictures taken. Our boys are amazing and make our family whole!

The Critter Corral was amazing at helping us find the pair of pigs that was right for us - if you live in the IN/IL area and are looking to adopt a pig, definitely check them out!!
