Owner left 3 year-old female guinea pig at the Mt. Vernon shelter because he is leaving by plane on Monday, and the airline rejected his taking the guinea pig on the plane (owner didn't find this out until last minute, obviously:-( ).
The Mt. Vernon shelter normally does not take in small animals so they are not well-equipped to care for this poor piggie, though I know they will give her the best care that they can. Megan told me they're putting the GP cage in the office where they really don't have the room but there are cats roaming around the shelter elsewhere so this is their only option.
Contact at the Mt. Vernon shelter is Dominique at 914-588-1892, firstname.lastname@example.org (Megan will be away).
I will be happy to help network to try to get transportation, if needed."
She's soooo cute (and needs a nail trim!)
