For a adopted guinea pig, does it need any shots and such? Do rescue shelters give information as to whether they have diseases and such?

It shouldn't need shots, but you should quarintine it.

If shelters are aware if they have diseases, they will most likely let you know. A good rescue most definetily would.

would a good shelter be have a heart?

Yes, I've heard of that one before and I think its good. A pig from a shelter does not need any extra treatment, they're usually healthier than the ones at the pet store
