About

Welcome To My Zoo!

I am a long time animal lover and volunteer for small animal rescues here in California. I have been sewing since I was about 11 years old, making all of my own prom and homecoming dresses, and many many costumes over the years. But I have been making cozy items for guinea pigs and other small animals since 2006. Over the years I pretty much just made things for the rescue and my own personal pets. Finally in 2015 at the urging of my close friends and family members I decided to open this shop and I haven't looked back! I do indeed have a small zoo here that includes 2 dogs, 3 cats and many rescued guinea pigs! I just love making cozy items for the little furry family members! It warms my heart to see them being pampered! A good portion of the profits from the sale of my fleece items all go back into helping rescue guinea pigs here in Southern CA. Some of the things I have been able to do since opening the Etsy store are donating fleece items to rescues to raise much needed funds, donating beds for foster piggies, paying for surgeries of rescue piggies and much much more and helping 2 rescue piggies find a forever home 1800 miles away! So huge thank you to everyone who has purchased from us!

    I have been sewing since I was a teen. I started making cozies back in '06. At that time I made cozies for the rescue I volunteered for as a way to raise money! Years later in 2015 friends convinced me to open a shop and here I am!

  • Bella

    Assistant

    Bella is our quality control inspector and all around assistant here at Valerie's Zoo. Being an extra large cuy girl weighing in close to 6lbs, cozies are size tested using Bella as a reference.

  • Kashi

    Assistant

    Kashi is one of our special needs sanctuary piggies who happens to be blind. She tests all of our cozies before they go into production for maximum comfort. If you see if for sale in my shop, it is Kashi approved!
