All Rabbits and Guinea Pigs Available at NO FEE the Weekend of Nov. 13th
BOSTON and Salem, Mass., Nov. 9, 2021 – Following the success of two “small pet” adoptathons held in July and September—during which 166 guinea pigs, rabbits, birds and more were placed into new homes at no fee—the MSPCA-Angell and the Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) are at it again with a fee-waived adoptathon for guinea pigs and rabbits on Saturday, Nov. 13 and Sunday, Nov. 14.
The whopping increase in guinea pig and rabbits surrendered to the MSPCA—a 66 percent increase in the last year—means the MSPCA’s three adoption centers in Boston, Methuen and Centerville on Cape Cod, as well as NEAS’ Salem shelter, remain overwhelmed with small pets.
Save on Adoption Fees!
Adopters who take advantage of the weekend adoptathon will save $85 per rabbit and $30 per guinea pig, money that can be re-applied toward the care of these new pets.
“We still have more than 100 guinea pigs and rabbits available for adoption, and these animals comprise—by far—the largest percentage of adoptable pets across all of our locations,” said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA-Angell.
“We hope that every available adopter takes advantage of this special adoptathon to welcome a new pet into their family.”
The MSPCA-Angell has set up a special registration page for would-be adopters to make an appointment for this weekend, and those who wish to adopt from NEAS can register via neas.org/bunsandguineapigs.
