Members of the police department were touched by the family’s loss, so they wanted to put a smile back on the young boy’s face by buying him a new guinea pig. 

They got him all the accessories too, including a crate and food. 

The police department is also accepting donations for the family in form of cash, gift cards, clothing, etc.
