The Latest Guinea Pigs from Monterey
In August LAST YEAR, 350 guinea pigs were rescued from a breeder who had been evicted from their home. They called the SPCA of Monterey to take their guinea pigs. These people had been breeding guinea pigs for biomedical research for 30 years.
Most have been placed, but these poor guys have been living at the Monterey Shelter for a YEAR now!! They need a loving home! Please adopt one of these piggies and show them the love and attention that they've never had. Many of the Monterey pigs that have been adopted have made very sweet, lovable pets.
You can still view the photo album of all the guinea pigs the day after the surrender, on Sept 1, 2001. We were there and got a lot of piggie photos! Go to the MHS album.
Most of the white guinea pigs are FEMALES. Also, despite the lighting of the photo, they all have black eyes.
BUT, when we went down to Monterey to get what we thought were the remaining 36 guinea pigs, they had just received in a new group of guinea pigs in very bad condition. The photos in the vehicle are from the trip back up from Monterey (a three hour trek).
Photos of M1 through M20 were taken at MHS a while ago when we were planning on doing another trip with them. We will be checking those photos against who we brought back as as well as who is now at PHS for adoption. So, some of those photos may change.
Currently ALL of these guinea pigs are at one person's home. She and her family are fostering them for us.
