We are appealing for information after three Guinea pigs were found in a bag on the morning of Saturday 3 December in Lerwick.
Scottish SPCA auxiliary inspector, Deborah Caithness, said, “The three Guinea pigs were found on the corner of King Haakon Street and King Harald Street at around 10am.
“They are long-haired Guinea pigs and mainly white in colour with some brown and black patches.
“The bag they were found in is a large, black shoulder bag, which had hay in the bottom.
“We understand that people’s circumstances can change, but this is not the right way to give up an animal if you can no longer care for them.
“These Guinea pigs are now at one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres where they will receive the care they need.
“If anyone recognises these animals or has any information, we would ask that they contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
