The ASPCA started National Adopt-A-Rescued-Guinea Pig Month back in 2002 to help raise awareness about guinea pigs in shelters and about pet cavies in general. Guinea pigs are rewarding pets when cared for properly. Many can be found in rescues and shelters around the world, waiting for their forever home. They are are social animals and should be kept in pairs. Learn more at the ASPCA’s page on Guinea Pigs.
