Boomer, the Pet of the Day
Name: Boomer
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea pig
Home: Charleston, South Carolina, USA
   Boomer was part of a large guinea pig surrender in the Charleston, SC area. A woman who was a pet hoarder actually realized that she had a problem and surrendered them to the SPCA. The SPCA was not able to handle the influx of guinea pigs so a local pet store took in all 39 of them, including many pregnant females. Boomer was one of the pregnant females and had two babies. She was housed separately because she could not get along with the other guinea pigs.

    My beloved Tribble had died about a month before and I was ready for a new piggie. I took my surviving babies to pick out their new sibling and they were able to get along with Boomer, so that was what we needed to know. She came home with us. (The pet store was able to find local homes or send the other guinea pigs to rescues throughout the Southeastern USA.)

    Boomer is still a handful in more ways than one, but she's in her forever home now. She is Queen of the Pen and she is a big pig. And I love my Boomy-Girl!
