Chloe, Tom and Jerry

APRIL 2016 | Chloe, Tom & Jerry

Government Relations since 2012

Tom and Jerry lucked out when they moved out of their local shelter and into foster care at the ASPCA’s Washington, DC, office in September 2013. Although their past is largely a mystery, the “pleasantly plump” three-pound guinea pigs were soon adopted by Chloe and her husband.

“They boys are endlessly adorable and entertaining,” Chloe says, “but they also play a critical role in advancing the ASPCA’s mission through advocacy.” Tom and Jerry have staged rallies in support of New Jersey legislation to ban gestation crates and have even participated in a Capitol Hill briefing in support of federal legislation to ban cosmetic animal testing.
