When Monique Davenport was five years old, she received her first guinea pig. What started as a pet turned into a life-long love to help the furry critters find their homes. The Elanora resident now runs Cavy Angels Guinea Pig Rescue and now aims to find homes for approximately 250 guinea pigs.
The woman takes in unwanted or stray guinea pigs and tries to find them new homes. She has already given homes to over 600 of these furry creatures. The process then cycles back since guinea pigs breed fast as they can give birth between 55 to 72 days.
The guinea pigs are given to the rescue directly, handed down by the RSPCA, the Animal Welfare League, or by local vets.
