Two Guinea Pigs were placed in the pickup bed of a Katy homeowner. Rather than returning the baby animals to an unsuitable setting, the family opted to retain and cherish them. As the epidemic progresses, authorities report an upsurge in animal dumping and abandonment.
According to the Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce, animal abandonment is more common in the greater Katy region than animal dumping. Animal abandonment occurs when a person is evicted or forced to leave their house and leaves their pets behind.
This happened to a Katy family who discovered two guinea pigs placed in the bed of their pickup vehicle, cage, and everything.
The Baileys headed to the shop to get food and supplies for their new little family members once the first shock subsided. Their guinea pigs have been around for approximately a year. They were first wary of their new surroundings, but they are growing to like it, especially Bailey's daughter.
The story of the Bailey guinea pigs ended happily ever after. Unfortunately, many creatures in the region do not share this sentiment.
If families are unable to retain their dogs, there are options. Make contact with homeless shelters. Animals should never be dumped or abandoned, according to authorities.
