When someone spotted a box sitting outside a charity shop in the UK last week, they didn’t think anything of it at first — until they saw the note taped to it.
“RSPCA please can you find us a nice new home. Our mummy is poorly and can’t look after us anymore,” the note read. Inside the box were three guinea pigs, abandoned and confused. The person who found them contacted the RSPCA, and animal collection officer Richard Carr rushed over to the shop to collect them.
