    Arlington police want to find the person who abandoned 100 guinea pigs outside the city's animal shelter.

    Because the animals were left while the shelter was closed, it's considered a crime.

    Meanwhile, the shelter's veterinarian says the guinea pigs are in good health and ready for adoption.

    The adoption fee is $7.
