Cocoa's Info...

I am a special needs pet and in need of an experienced adopter.

Cocoa's Story...
Cocoa is a one year old guinea pig who needs a good, experienced home. She is healthy but very nervous and shy, which is why we have her listed as "special needs."
Her owners found out after adopting her as a baby that they are very allergic to the hay and other items that Cocoa needs in her day-to-day life. Sadly that limits the amount of attention she gets, which contributes to her shyness. Cocoa will nip at times when she is under stress. She is very nervous and will sometimes try to run away and hide from things that scare her.
Cocoa would do well with a home that has experience with guinea pigs and understands how to work with her to ease her fears. She is not mean. She just isn't used to very much noise and activity.
Cocoa lives with Lily and they like to have their cages side-by-side so they can see each other, but they do not always do well in the same cage. They get along OK when both are out of their cages. We aren't sure yet, but do not think that these girls have to be adopted together.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cocoa, a Greenville 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 Greenville, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Greenville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Greenville 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 Greenville 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 Greenville paves the way for another one to be saved.
