The Guinea Pigs-A-Go-Go Rescue Railroad Trip Jackie, Becky, Sophie, and Oreo (faithful companion) set off across the country on Monday, August 5th. The album starts the Sunday evening, prior to the trip, with final preparations. They returned safe and sound Friday at 5:30pm on August 16th. An 11-day, 5700-mile trip! One pig was brought back from the mid-west to go to Vancouver, Canada. One pig got mixed up and didn't make his destination and so will be finding a great new home in the Bay Area after touring the States!

31 Application and photos. A copy of the entire "Adoptables Album" was cut up into individual pigs. Then we stapled the pigs onto the applicant they were going to. Actually worked quite well! These lucky pigs were on their way to Rachel in WI.
