We will also have a variety of fun items from our cavy store such as freshly packed grass hay, quality timothy pellets, hand made cozies, cuddle cups, tunnels, 'pigloos,' cage accessories like food dishes and water bottles, and much, much more!

All proceeds from your purchases at our booth go to the guinea pigs. For more information about this event or to purchase your tickets online, visit

Los Angeles Rat Day

Saturday, April 11at 12:00pm - 5:00pm in PDT
Spirit Studio Silverlake 2601 Hyperion Ave (Really, 3711 EvanS St)

This event is to encourage the responsible adoption and protection of all rodents - from mice to rats…hamsters…and guinea pigs!!

Come visit some of our foster piggies (and some of us will be bringing our ratties too!). It'll be a great and fun way to promote compassion and care for all animals - through education, artwork, and hands-on interaction.

Here is a an explanation of the event from Art For Animals' Flyer:
"Often misunderstood and under appreciated members of our world, rats are some of the most intelligent, loving and social of all animals. As one of human's constant companions throughout history, Rat Day seeks to bring greater understanding to the plight of the rat as unwilling scientific subject to adored companion animals."

Since guinea pigs are also misunderstood and under appreciated, and are often right next to their rodent cousins in laboratories, we are honored and happy to be a part of this event!!

Suggested donation: $5
