VeganWheeker's First Giveaway!

Today I've crossed the 1000+ follower mark on Twitter and as promised, I'm having a giveaway to celebrate!

CupcakeKitteh jokingly provided the idea for the prize and then I, by happy chance, came across this and thought it was perfect.
It's a 2011 monthly wall calendar from Orange County Cavy Haven featuring a photo of their rescued guinea pigs each month. OCCH does wonderful work rescuing guinea pigs, rehabilitating them, and then adopting them out. Those that cannot be adopted out due to age or medical concerns are lovingly taken care of for the rest of their life. I greatly admire them and wished I live closer so I could participate in their events. Proceeds from this calendar will benefit their rescue. (Yay, we all win!) To learn more about OCCH, follow them on Twitter @OCCavyHaven or Facebook where they post lots of cute guinea pig pictures. :-)

The giveaway is open to everyone, including my international friends. :-) To enter, simply leave a comment below. Some ideas include stories about your pet, what rescue you support, or your favorite vegan meal. No Twitter account is necessary to enter but be sure to leave an email address so I could contact you. A winner will be chosen Friday, Feb 25th 10pm PST.

Happy Wheekend, everyone!

  3. Congrats on the followers!! This is a cute giveaway, love the idea of the calendar!

  4. Oh I am so glad it's a gpiggy calendar!!!

    My last gpig, Belle, was the cutest lil piggy and after we'd had her a few weeks we noticed two bulges on her sides, she soon gave birth to two baby gpigs. She'd wheek when she heard me coming and she loved to eat, especially tomatoes.

  5. Our rescued pet is a little bigger (over 100 lbs) but, our Lab/Mastif mix is happier at our house then in his previous life.
