Briggs came to us in May 2005, just 10 weeks old and already the victim of a cruel and thoughtless person. He was found in a recycling bin along with Swiss Miss, a young female guinea pig in comparably better health who is on our list of adoptables.

Briggs, though, was so severely malnourished that we could count every bone on his little body. His front feet are curled under, and we are hoping that with a long course of supplemental calcium his feet will correct themselves. For this reason, he will remain with us so that we can ensure proper veterinary care.
