"We have been getting about 10+ guinea pig surrender requests per day. It is quite literally impossible for us and the other rescues to try and keep up with this. Please, we are begging you, consider adopting or fostering guinea pigs. Please encourage others to do the same.
The majority of these poor little piggies were impulsively bought at a pet store. Many are missexed and start reproducing, adding to this population problem.
So many rescues agree that it's never been so bad with this amount of surrender requests. If you cannot adopt or foster, please spread the word or consider donating."
