Guinea pigs Gin and Tonic looking for their forever home after they were found abandoned in a cardboard box

A pair of female guinea pigs that were abandoned in a cardboard box are looking for their forever home.

Gin and Tonic arrived into the care of the RSPCA Walsall branch in October after they were found abandoned in boxes at the end of a driveway with 17 others. It is believed that Gin and Tonic were mums to the babies which were found with them.

Vicky Harrison, trustee at RSPCA Walsall, said: “Poor Gin and Tonic were abandoned in a cardboard box on a driveway with 17 other guinea pugs which we believe had come from a home overrun with guinea pigs. Sadly, we do see circumstances where breeding has become out of control which means it's likely that each pet is not getting the attention they need or having their needs met. We would always encourage anyone who is struggling to cope with their pets to ask ourselves or other charities for help rather than abandoning their animals.

“Now these two girls are looking to find their forever home together.”

The RSPCA says Gin and Tonic are looking for an indoor home, with lots of space and enrichment to keep them occupied.
