Medusa's Info...

Medusa's Story...
Medusa is a beautiful chocolate & white American female guinea pig who who was born in September 2014. She is short-haired, meaning she won’t require a lot of grooming. Because Medusa is still young, she is still skittish, but we have been working with her on becoming more socialized.

Note: She does not have red eyes, that's just the camera flash.

Medusa seems to get along well with other female guinea pigs, but we can’t make any guarantee that she would get along with her new families guinea pigs. She really seems to like her own space, so we’re recommending she have at least a 40” long cage in her new home. Of course she would love plenty of out of cage time in her new home. Her new home should expect to allow Medusa to warm up to them at her own pace.

The adoption fee for Medusa is $35. All potential adopters are required to fill out an application prior to adoption, no exceptions.

For more information on Medusa, please contact her foster mom, Amber, by calling 574-341-0688, or by emailing awallen@wheekersrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Medusa, a Valparaiso 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 Valparaiso, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Valparaiso.

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