Why buy a guinea pig in a pet store when you can adopt this adorable pair at MSPCA-Cape Cod (MSPCA photo)

Harry and Jimmy come as a set!  Many people believe that guinea pigs—wonderful first time family pets for everyone—must be bought in a pet store.  But the truth is you can find guinea pigs every day of the week at your local animal shelter, including the MSPCA-Cape Cod in Centerville.  Harry and Jimmy are a bonded and oh-so-curious pair of guinea pigs who love to explore outside their cage and are social with people, too.

Guinea pigs are easy to keep and make wonderful pets.  They require fresh hay and pellets every day (which can be bought at the pet store) as well as fresh water and veggies.  They love to snack on oranges, too—an excellent source of vitamin C, which they need.  Harry and Jimmy need to go home together.  Interested?  Email [email protected] for more info! welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
