Guinea pigs rescued from Louisa give birth


CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two guinea pigs rescued from a hoarding situation in Louisa County gave birth to pups this week at the Richmond Wildlife Center in Chesterfield.

The first guinea pig to give birth had two pups. They have been moving around and interacting with their mother.

The wildlife center took in nearly 90 of the 500 animals rescued from that property in Louisa County. Once the center has treated and healed the sick and injured animals, they will be put up for adoption.Mobile users click here to watch the video.

Our maternity ward is in full swing with two of our female guinea pigs giving birth. Here is the first round to be born. Everyone is doing very well.
