Pets are not Toys

An apt reminder esp since there have been many cases of guinea pigs up for adoption recently.

Owning a pet, especially a guinea pig, is a long term commitment. Guinea pigs, despite their small size, are definitely not low maintenance! They can live up to 8 years or more and just like humans, they do fall sick and require medical attention and medication. They need a clean environment to live in and proper diet to thrive. If you are a new owner, don't worry - all it takes is a sincere heart that is willing to learn as much as possible to keep your piggie happy and healthy.

Adopt and don't buy. Adopt and don't abandon - they are as precious as your family members! Guinea pigs are for life - stand by them throughout their lifetime.
