Our Featured Pet of the Week below is from the APS of Durham. If you're looking to adopt or foster be sure to reach out to them.

The Pet of the Week is Cutie Pie!

Cutie Pie lives up to his name as a cute Guinea Pig! Did you know that Guinea pigs were first domesticated in 5,000 B.C.? And they're still great pets today. Guinea pigs don't sleep a lot and when they're awake they like to talk. You'll notice Cutie Pie is a social little guy, and he, like others, produces six main vocalizations: chutts, squeaks, whines, whistles, purrs and chirps. Each vocalization conveys a different meaning, so in essence, he's talking to you, his new friend. Guinea pigs are typically considered gregarious, outgoing animals. If you've never had a Guinea Pig before, now is the time to take Cutie Pie home with you today!

Cutie Pie’s Adoption Fee has been waived so we can find him a new home quickly. This amazing guy is so ready for his new home. Will it be with you? Come adopt Cutie Pie today and fill your home with love."
