Elvis the Guinea pig and his friends are looking for new homes in Alexandria

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria’s Home For The Pawlidays event is still going on until Friday, and until then adoption fees for a number of Guinea pigs have been taken care of by a generous donor.

Elvis, Kobe, Tyty, Paper and Scissors are looking to be adopted to new homes, and prefer not to share with each other, AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow.

“If it’s your first time adopting a guinea pig family member, our team is happy to answer any questions you might have, from feeding and supplies to living space and veterinary care,” Hardter said. “There are many different breeds of guinea pigs, which give them a wide variety of features, such as hair color, patterns, lengths, body size and even ear shape. The most popular breeds are the American/English, Abyssinian, Teddy and Peruvian.”
