If you're in central Missouri and have been thinking about fostering a guinea pig, now's your time.
From KQFX, Missouri:
A Good Samaritan rescued the animals after discovering them next to a dry creek bed near Andrew Sapp Road outside Ashland.
They were very malnourished, dehydrated and showed signs of hair loss. Staff provided them with clean water and fresh food, including kale and carrots. One died on Sunday.
Seven young adults and five one-week old pups remain. After they recover, the agency will put them up for adoption.
