A guinea pig that had its back broken after a child squeezed her too hard was given a custom-built wheelchair last year to help her walk. But now she needs more help! Here's a look at Estella as she chows down on a lunch of lettuce. (KGO-TV)

Meet Estella! This guinea pig has a custom-built wheelchair, thanks to Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary in Stockton, California.

Estella's back was broken in 2015 when a child squeezed her too hard and then abandoned in Calaveras County. She was eventually transferred to the sanctuary.

A Facebook fundraiser helped create the custom wheelchair last fall. But now they need more help!

Christine Morrissey with Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary says they need to make a couple more adjustments on the chair to ensure she fits in it perfectly. They're looking for members of the public to sponsor Estella's care.
