This might be the best case of “bedhead” you’ve ever seen! Chardonnay has fur going in every direction, but he pulls it off in the cutest way possible.

This 1-year-old Guinea pig has been friendly with his new human pals since arriving at the Connecticut Humane Society and is a good eater. He was even polite for a quick bath and nail trim, and during his veterinary exam.

Chardonnay should have a large penned-in area in his new home so that he has plenty of room for hidey houses and toys, and for running around and exploring.

Visit to learn more. An online application can be found in each pet’s profile. Plus, this month, you can make a difference for CHS pets like Chardonnay just by posting pictures of your pet on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. For every picture you post with #SNElovespets in the caption, Subaru of New England will donate $5 to CHS pets all of October.

CHS is a private organization with locations in Newington, Waterford and Westport and the reduced-fee Fox Memorial Clinic for owned pets, and is not affiliated with the government or any other animal welfare organizations. CHS’ work is made possible 100% through the generosity of donors.
