of the sale of this item will benefit Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue
There are many guinea pigs who are brought into shelters because they are no longer wanted. For this reason, Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue, a non-profit Virginia corporation, was formed. Our purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate, and find new homes for guinea pigs in our area. We also work to educate the public on the proper care of guinea pigs. All guinea pigs are spayed and neutered, health permitting, before the animals are adopted into new homes.

This auction is a charity auction for hand-made guinea pig scale-mail. (You've read that correctly)

Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear?

Fear not! A solution is here!

This hand-made scale-mail and tiny steel helmet will keep you guinea pig protected and secure in all situations. The scale-mail is made from polished steel scales and steel rings. It was painstakingly "woven" by me over several weeks in an effort to better prepare my guinea pig Lucky for the dangers of the modern world. The helmet was purchased at a Renaissance Faire later as it was the perfect finishing touch.

Lucky mostly wore his armor to begrudgingly pose for photos - once on top of a remote-control jetski. Don't worry - he never rode the thing in the water... I don't think he would have had the balance. 

Lucky passed away this weekend, and no longer requires his noble suit of armor.  In his honor and memory, any money from this auction (after Ebay fees) will go to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia. Lucky was adopted from the organization, and they're a fantastic group who do all they can to find, foster and adopt (to others) Guinea Pigs in the northern Virginia area. You'll see them on this auction as a 100% donation - it's not a hollow promise :)

Please bid high and bid often!

Please note that bidders with (0) feedback have been removed, and that anyone with 0 feedback will first need to message me before being allowed to bid. This auction has been re-listed as the previous winners did not produce a payment.

Also please consider going directly to MGPR's site to make donations. I can't link to their site here because of some overzealous content restriction controls, but please google their organization page and look for their donation page.
