guinea pigs dumped by side of road added 17/12/06

Dumped rabbit

As reported in the Grantham Journal on Thursday 7 December and the Stamford Mercury on Friday 15 December ...

" New Homes are needed for two guinea pigs and four rabbits found dumped.

The animals were found left on a driveway on the High Street in Little Bytham with no food, water or bedding and with just tatty cardboard boxes to protect them from the cold. All six animals are thought to be quite young and are healthy. They are grey and brown in colour.The animals have now been passed onto the RSPCA.

RSPCA collection officer Julie Stoodley said : "They were very lucky to survive the cold weather. They may also have been at risk of attack by other animals as the boxes would have provided little protection. it seems that none of the animals had been fed or watered for some time."

If you could offer a safe home to one of the animals, call the RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch on 01205 319059 between 09.30 and 12.30, Monday to Friday. "
