Pigs are in the month of March
Those furry little creatures that make great first pets for older kids are being celebrated throughout March at Animal Humane Society (AHS) in celebration of Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month.
It’s fitting that kids enjoy their guinea pig friends as many squeak in delight when their human(s) visits or opens their food container. They’re docile, yet social creatures requiring daily attention and an unlimited amount of green grass hay.
Guinea pigs are one of 10 types of animals available for adoption at AHS. In addition to dogs, cats and guinea pigs you’ll find birds, rats, mice, ferrets, bunnies, hamsters, chinchillas and gerbils. AHS averages a total of 30 guinea pig adoptions each month out of their five metro locations.
