OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two dozen guinea pigs were found Wednesday night near Grand Haven.

The finder stumbled upon the guinea pigs at Green Street and 138th Avenue in Robinson Township, put them in a box and contacted the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies brought the guinea pigs to the Harbor Humane Society in West Olive, the animal shelter said in a Facebook post.

The group includes “mamas, papas and even babies,” according to the animal shelter. The Harbor Humane Society will hold them for four days and then release them for adoption.

The organization is asking for monetary donations or donations of guinea pig supplies, including hay and special food, to help meet the unexpected need. Monetary donations can be made via Facebook or the Harbor Humane Society’s website.

Anyone with information about the guinea pigs should call the Harbor Humane Society at 616.399.2119 or email office@harborhumane.org.
