Newton & Skeeter


Newton and Skeeter are a pair of adult male guinea pigs that was dumped outside a shelter during a cold winter night. The poor boys had to spend the night outside in the bitter cold until shelter staff came to work in the morning and found them. The boys then came to us.

They stayed with us for several months while they recovered from their horrible ordeal. When they first arrived, they were hungry and very, very tired. We’ve never seen guinea pigs sleep as soundly as these boys did at the beginning. Fortunately, they did not get sick and they responded nicely to a warm, clean cage and good food.

Not having much history on the boys, we decided to keep them in the rescue. A good samaritian came along and offered to take the boys in as permanent fosters. Once in their new foster home they did even better and are now very happy.
