Winnifred's Story...
Winnifred is an amazingly sweet girl that just needs to find a home of her own. She was rescued from a bad breeding/hoarding situation and wants to make up for lost time! Please give this girl a chance and she will absolutely melt your heart.

Guinea Pigs are the only other animal be sides the human primate that REQUIRES vitamin C. RCHS guinea pigs are fed a variety of fresh vitamin c filled veggies and fruits such as Squash, red and green bell peppers, dark leafy greens and zucchini. These are acceptable sources of vitamin C on a daily basis. You can also feed your guinea pig apples, orange or orange peels, and strawberries. HOWEVER, the fruits are high in sugar so those should only be fed once a week!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Winnifred, a Manhattan Guinea Pig was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Guinea Pig for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Manhattan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Manhattan breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Guinea Pig breeders who help with Guinea Pig rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
