The AJC called to interview me for an upcoming article they're doing! I did it yesterday and it's going to come out a week from this Sunday. They chose my rescue and another because, according to them, we're the two main/biggest rescue in the state.

AJC is the only major newspaper in Atlanta and gets 2.3 million individual readers a week, so I'm extremely excited annd I'm definitely going to type it up and put it on here!

Alright, so here's the full story. The other main rescue in my state is doing an event called Pigstock, and they had the newspaper do a story on them. The newspaper decided it would be a good idea to have the state's other main rescue in for a tiny tidbit of it, so here's what it said:

Kimberlie Brooks, 15, of Lilburn, opened Kimmies Guineas Rescue a year ago after having guinea pigs four years. The high school freshman has found homes for more than 100 pigs.

"They're little, but they have huge personalities and they're smart, too," Brooks said.


It looks like a lot more and cooler (somehow it took up two paragraphs) in the newspaper. And they kinda misquoted me, but that's alright because I'm still thrilled.
