Guinea pig Estella was found abandoned on the road in California and was brought to the Harvest Home Sanctuary. After the organization realized that she was unable to move her legs due to an owner squeezing her too tightly and breaking her back, they knew that they needed to do something to improve the quality of Estella's life. They took to Facebook to start a fundraising campaign to get Estella a wheelchair, which could help strengthen her legs so she could one day walk again.
The internet was moved by the story, and eventually the organization was able to get Estella the chair. Look how cute she looks in it!As someone whose first pets were guinea pigs, it makes me so sad to learn that Estella was abandoned by her owners - it's not right for these people to abandon the pet they signed up to take care of. Fortunately, this story has a real happy ending, and I hope that Estella makes a speedy recovery with the help of her new chair.
