Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted after the guinea pigs were discovered at a garage on Tuesday morning (March 20).

The female guinea pigs are now in the care of the charity’s animal rescue and rehoming centre in Dundee, where they have been named Robyn and Susan.

Scottish SPCA Inspector Robyn Gray said: “Whoever dumped these guinea pigs couldn’t have known they would be found by someone who would help them.
