The MSPCA in Jamaica Plain and the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem are holding an adopt-a-thon for guinea pigs and rabbits this weekend, in which they'll waive their normal adoption fees, because they are now stocked to the brim with them.
The MSPCA reports:
In the last three months alone, the MSPCA’s adoption centers, as well as NEAS in Salem have received more than 210 guinea pigs and rabbits.
And they're staying in shelters for twice as long as dogs and cats, the society reports.
To adopt one of these carrot lovers without the usual fee this weekend, you need to register in advance.
