Rocko's petfinder ad represents numerous small animals at this shelter, so please, go in person and see the animals. This is a kill shelter. Please help Rocko and his friends while they are still there to be helped. Rocko is also being housed on TOXIC CEDAR BEDDING. Read about better bedding choices here: Bedding (I would also add "Boxo" to the list). If you see something like toxic bedding at your local shelter, it's a great reason to donate appropriate bedding, or even volunteer!
* AAGP recommends quarantining any new guinea pigs
for 2-3 weeks and confirming the sex yourself.
Many sad accidents or "accidents" can be avoided this way. *
