Rescued Guinea Pig Gets Second Chance With Love And A Wheelchair

Estella, the Guinea Pig has had a very traumatic life. 2 years ago she and her friend Pip were abandoned by her owners; injured and left on the side of the road in California. It was soon discovered that Estella was paralyzed. She was squeezed so hard by her previous owner that her back broke and since then she's been having to carry her lower body with all her upper body strength. But through it all, she's had all the support she needed from her friend, Pip and the Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary of Stockton, CA.


Estella and Pip are still best of friends, but no one was interested in adopting the two of them because of Estella's condition... until Harvest Home (who rescues abused, abandoned, and neglected animals) gave them their forever home!

Harvest Home also gave Estella her second chance on life. They wanted to find a way for her to be more comfortable moving around so they found a company that makes custom-made wheelchairs for guinea pigs!

Harvest Home held a fundraiser through Facebook and in a matter of a few days, they were able to afford a wheelchair for Estella! "We operate because people care about animals. Estella has brought so many people to help us operate and save more lives." Now she's thriving with the aid of the wheelchair, the support of the community, and of course her dear friend Pip.

The mission at Harvest Home is to provide life-long care for rescued animals, it educates the public about humane animal care and practices, and when appropriate help finds homes for their animals. Harvest Home specializes in giving animals a second chance in life with the hope for a better future.

This OnlyGood TV original video was produced by Tracy Chevrier, shot by Jeff Grinta, and edited by Kellie Sieban.
