March is Rescue a Guinea Pig Month

When you think of saving animals, whales, pandas, and other exotic species come to mind. You don’t ever really think of rescuing a guinea pig, but these little rodents are in need of love and attention as much as any other. Like cats and dogs, guinea pigs can be found in shelters all across the country. They, too, are often abandoned, after being received as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, or won at carnivals.
