found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
Crinkle and Zazzle are Abyssinian like their momma and Spritz is more of a smooth coat like her daddy. These little girls are healthy, happy, make adorable squeals, chirps, squeaks and purring noises - especially if you bring them some of their favorite foods.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy hay, limited pellets, and fresh vegetables including Romaine, red leaf, green leaf, cilantro, bell peppers. Please read up on Guinea Pig care and diet before adopting, by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/
The back story. A family bought two baby guinea pigs at a local pet store which were supposed to be the same sex. Obviously they weren’t. Luckily a representative of FCACC found out that these baby guinea pigs were about to be relinquished to Animal Control. She worked with the group to have the dad neutered so the family could keep their pets, but gave me the kids for adoption. Thanks to Charlie, these babies never entered the shelter! I brought these little piggies to the vet twice – once when they were five weeks old, and again today when they turned eight weeks old to double check on their sex before adopting them out. They are definitely girls!
I only wish we could work with the community more to avoid animals ever entering an institution.
The guinea pig adoption fee is $35 and benefits rescued pets. I think Guinea pigs are happier in pairs, so if you adopt two guinea pigs the fee for both is only $60, or all three for $85. Or if you have a female guinea pig at home, perhaps that piggie needs a friend?
If you need a starter kit including cage, water bottle, pellets, litter, hay and everything you need to get started – that is available for $75. To meet and possibly adopt these adorable guinea pigs, please contact Sheri directly at email@example.com or 773-777-2891. They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
