Clinton residents volunteer at the shelter

Jocelyn Eaton and her daughter Izzie commute to volunteer at the guinea pig sanctuary in Salisbury – it’s an hour from Clinton with no traffic – but they think it’s worth it.

“I love how cute and smart guinea pigs are. They are wonderful little pets,” said Jocelyn Eaton.

On average, there are 250-300 guinea pigs in the reserve, most of them waiting for adoption, after receiving a clean bill of health from a vet.

Eaton helps with adoption.

“It feels great to match the pig with the adopter. The family gets a great new companion, and the pig gets a forever loving home.” “Especially watching those who have been there for a long time being adopted.”

Eaton had guinea pigs as a child, but did not return to them until earlier this year. Eaton said she and 15-year-old Izzie decided in February to visit the guinea pig sanctuary. We brought a bunch of vegetables to feed the pigs, and we wanted to volunteer for the day.”
