Guinea pig calendar for 2014

2014 Pet Piggies On Parade Calendar by CavyMadness

The arrival of cool, fall weather at the HappyCavy household brings with it the start of several annual traditions. Snuggle blankets are distributed to each cavy, summer cooling blocks are thawed and put away, and The Humans begin searching for guinea pig holiday gift ideas.

But aside from the fancy cozies and care accessories destined to be gift-wrapped for the HappyCavies, The Humans take part in a tradition shared by guinea pig enthusiasts around the world:

The annual guinea pig calendar gift-exchange.

Background

Around this time each year, guinea pig rescues and individuals begin to announce the sale of their much anticipated guinea pig calendars.

With each passing year, the list of guinea pig calendars for sale grows longer and longer. From the glossy and high-def to the handmade and shoe-string, sifting through PetSmart calendars and other big-box offerings can get a little overwhelming.

So this year, we wanted to make the calendar buying process easier for ourselves and our readers by putting together a buyer’s guide to guinea pig calendars for 2014.

After all, it just makes sense to manage your guinea pig’s schedule on a calendar with other cute guinea pigs staring back at you!

Guinea Pig Calendars for 2014

Not every 2014 calendar for sale made it onto the Guinea Pig Calendar List below. We omit the cookie-cutter, mass-produced, high-gloss calendars available by the hundreds. Instead, we focus on calendars with short production runs created by individuals, guinea pig rescues, and other organizations who may rely on calendar sales to fund year to year operating expenses.

If you know of a guinea pig calendar that deserves to be included, please let us know in the comments section below!

The Guinea Pig Calendar List 2014

Real Men Love Guinea Pigs

“Real Men Love Guinea Pigs”

It’s official: Orange County Cavy Haven has broken the mold for guinea pig calendars! Forget saccharine sweet poses next to cliché set-ups, OCCH’s “Real Men Love Guinea Pigs” calendar features 12 handsome volunteers from OCCH that have agreed to be ogled and objectified in the name of raising money for homeless guinea pigs.

It’s a clever concept, and with creativity like this, we can’t wait to see what OCCH has in store for years to come!

Support Guinea Pig Rescues!

Purchasing a guinea pig calendar from a rescue (like Orange County Cavy Haven or Texas Rustlers) is always a good idea.

Proceeds from calendar purchases are generally used toward operating costs (like events and supplies) and veterinary expenses for their rescued guinea pigs. Please be a kind Human. Support local rescues!
