Amanda Pourtaimour, with Petco, plays with one of 23 guinea pigs the Bluffton store is caring for after they were seized from a Beaufort County woman for animal cruelty on Monday. The woman also was charged with four counts of cruelty to children. The guinea pigs, which have been spayed or neutered by local veterinarians, are now up for adoption for a $10 donation to the Petco Foundation. "They're social, you can pet them, you can pick them up," said store manager Carrell Heinkel. "They're just adorable."
