They may not be chipmunks, but Alvin, Simon and Theodore are up for adoption through the Vernon BC SPCA.
“These sweet little (guinea) pigs were found abandoned near a community mailbox, cold and hungry,” the agency said.
Staff were quick to take them in, warm them up, feed them and trim their long-overgrown toenails.
The three, three-year-old male guinea pigs are described as shy but with patience, they may open up.
Applications for the three pigs are being accepted online.
