Guinea pigs abandoned

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after two guinea pigs were abandoned in South Ayrshire.

Guinea pigs abandonedA member of the public handed the animals into our animal rescue and rehoming centre in Mainholm on Monday (9 March) after reportedly seeing a young boy dumping them in a cardboard carrier behind Aldi in Prestwick.

The duo are currently being cared for at the centre where they have been named Daisy and Delilah.

Assistant manager Lynda Hourston said, "Whoever dumped these guinea pigs couldn't have known they would be found by someone who would help them.

"Daisy and Delilah are really lovely girls who are full of fun and mischief. They also appear to have been well handled so it certainly seems they have been well looked after until recently.

"We're now hoping to find this sweet pair a new home together with an owner who is committed to caring for them for the rest of their lives.

"If anyone has any information about Daisy and Delilah or is interested in giving them a loving new home, we'd ask them to call us on 03000 999 999."

Abandoning and causing an animal unnecessary suffering animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 and anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information about Daisy and Delilah is being urged to contact us on 03000 999 999.
