Pet of the Week


Have you ever considered becoming BFFs with a guinea pig? We often linger at the shelter for months, probably because most folks just think of us as classroom pets, but we can bond just as closely as cats and dogs do. My name is Haystack and I’m a pretty low-maintenance 3-year-old guy that loves fresh greens, kicking back in my castle and playing hide-and-seek, too. Once you get me cooing with delight or “popcorning” (which is like guinea pig breakdancing) you are sure to fall head over heels for my cuteness. If you’ve never been lucky enough to have a guinea pig sing your praises, I’d love the chance to serenade YOU today!
