Bebe the Wonder Pig!
Bebe is not just any old guinea pig, he is a fantastic guinea pig! Bebe loves to snuggle, explore, and hang out with his foster parents and his friend Lorelai, who happens to be a cat. When Bebe was invited to the Mayor’s Open House at City Hall, he wanted to make sure he looked his best. He received a spa treatment of shampoo, conditioning, blow drying and a nail trim; and he loved it!
Bebe was a wonderful guinea pig ambassador at City Hall. He met lots of people and helped to answer questions about how to properly care for a guinea pig.
When Bebe first came to SAS, volunteers quickly realized that something wasn’t right about his breathing. He went to the vet that day where it was discovered he had an Upper Respiratory Infection and pneumonia. He was sent into foster care immediately. Bebe turned out to be a real trooper when he was given medicine twice a day and had to sit in the bathroom with warm steam to help ease his breathing. His foster parents found out quickly that Bebe is agreeable to most things as long as he has lettuce and a warm lap to relax on.
Because of the Seattle Animal Shelters “Help the Animals’ Fund”, and through its extensive volunteer and foster programs, Bebe has been given a second chance and is enjoying life (and lettuce) to its fullest!
