We have not settled on a name yet, so for now he will be called GP. That's right, a guinea pig. We don't normally take in small common pets because we couldn't possibly rescue, house, feed, and care for all of the little guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, and mice that needed homes. However, sometimes things happen for a reason. When we welcomed Cheeks the Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, we couldn't foresee what an amazing Ambassador he would be. It just sort of fell into our laps. So when little GP popped up, it just seemed it was inevitable. GP will be housed with Chili Pepper the Patagonian Cavy once he has graduated from Quarantine.
GP was deficient in vitamin C, which is crucial for rodents in the cavy family. Luckily it was discovered soon enough that he was quickly supplemented and has since made a good recovery. We hope that his personality meshes well with Chili Pepper and that they are able to become good friends. If you would like to suggest a name for Mr. GP, please email, call or send a message via Facebook and we'll put it in the running.
