These guinea pigs have been rescued by the RSPCA after they were found wandering around in the wild.

The two male pets and a rabbit were believed to have been ‘dumped’ by their owner, and were found at Revesby Bridge near Mareham le Fen last Tuesday.

RSPCA welfare officer Becky Harper said: “Some local residents managed to catch the guinea pigs and I picked them up, but despite several tries we were never able to catch the ginger lion-head rabbit, which has not been seen since Thursday.”

She added: “Dumping unwanted pets is unacceptable and had the guineas not been picked up they wouldn’t have stood much chance of survival in the wild.”

The two animals, described as friendly, are now at the RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch awaiting adoption.

To rehome a pet from the branch call 01526 834646.
