Thumbs up Rescued a Piggie Today! Photos!

I walked into the pet store I know (and they know me) to pick up a young female gerbil for an introduction. Done. While there I was offered a free young guinea pig!

She had been brought into the store by some people who found her, abandoned, wandering around in a public park!! I would like to take a baseball bat to the people who did that to her. She was covered in insect bites, but generally OK.

I got her home, washed her, treated the bites with antibiotic creme, and introduced her to Lily and Chip (neutered). They seem to be getting along fine together. Now I have a herd!

Her name is Adrienne. She came with a free bag of GP food and alfalfa.

Keeping a local pet store you know and trust (and who know you) aware you are interested in rescues is always a good thing, so long as you are also a regular customer!

I guess we are both lucky. She is a little timid right now in the cage with Lily and Chip, but I feel sure that will change. She was eating a lot several hours ago.

She's a cutie! How sad it is that someone would do that to her. I'm thrilled she's with you now.
