The "Winter Wonderland" is part of the holiday display along with a guinea pig village.

Last Sunday, cavy lovers were entertained by the Enchanted Guinea Pig Grotto where guinea pigs were active in their very own miniature town. The grotto included a “winter wonderland” and a “guinea village” including a post office, college, veterinarian office, and vegetable stand stocked with the guinea pigs’ favorite treats.

The event was organized by Sue and Winston Tate of Cavy Corner Guinea Pig Sanctuary in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The volunteer organization was established in the summer of 2008 as a place for special needs guinea pigs with poor health or behavioral issues. The organization is currently caring for 100 cavies and they’re hoping the event will help raise funds. The organization never turns away animals in need of care.

Guinea pig enthusiasts called this a “world’s first.” Winston Tate added, “We have looked on the internet and we can’t see that any event has ever been held like it, and we’re sure people of all ages will enjoy the displays.” This event is for guinea pig lovers of all ages and not just children.

Visit The Enchanted Guinea Pig Grotto tomorrow at Cusworth Hall between 10am and 4pm as part of the Christmas Festival taking place on Sunday, December 18. Visit Cavy Corner Guinea Pig Sanctuary on Facebook or on Twitter for more information.
