Six guinea pigs, including four babies, have been rescued by RSPCA Cymru in the Wrexham area.
The guinea pigs – a male, female and four babies – were found by a police community support officer in a children’s park on Rhosddu Road on 18 November, 2016. They were then collected by the RSPCA from a local police station, and continue to be looked after in RSPCA care.
A plastic bag was found near to the guinea pigs, which – shockingly – it is thought was used to transport them, as it was full of fur and faeces.
Following the rescue, RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information to decipher how the defenceless animals were dumped in the Wrexham park, with members of the public urged to come forward.
Rachael Davies, RSPCA inspector, said:
“It’s so shocking to think someone would dump these poor animals like rubbish. Thankfully, they were found by a PSCO, and rescued by RSPCA Cymru – as they would not have survived for long.
“The guinea pigs are now doing well in RSPCA care, with the babies far too young to be considered for re-homing at this stage.
“With no CCTV in the area, we’re relying on the local community to come forward with any information which could support our enquiries.
“Members of the public can contact the RSPCA inspectorate information line on 0300 123 8018, with all calls treated in confidence.”
