GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — This week’s featured adoptable pets from the Kent County Animal Shelter are several lovable guinea pigs and a “gentlemanly” dog.
“Guinea pigs make great pets. They’re small. They’re good starter pets,” shelter director Angela Hollinshead said. “We’re hoping that maybe there’s a teacher out there viewing right now that maybe needs a classroom pet.”
Guinea pig adoptions are $10 at the Kent County Animal Shelter.
Carson is a 3-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix. The shelter says he’s a “polite gentleman” who likes to greet everyone he sees and does well on a leash. He gets along well with most other dogs. He loves snacks — the shelter says he’ll eat anything. He also loves to pay and knows how to pay fetch.
