Pony Boy's Story...
Meet some of our boys of fall, Soda Pop, Pony Boy, and Nevada. Soda Pop and Pony Boy are 6 month old Abyssinian Guinea Pigs. Nevada is a 2 month old Texel Guinea Pig. They are all available for adoption and are very tame. Soda Pop has a more dominant personality. He gets along great with these two boys, but may pick fights with pigs he isn't used to. Pony Boy has a very curious personality and has a lot of character. He is very friendly with other pigs. Nevada is also quite cuddly. His breed, the Texel, is a little bit higher maintenance than more common Guinea's. He will need a little bit more care with grooming his fluffy, curly coat! Each pig is available to adopt for $15.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pony Boy, a Joliet 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 Joliet, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Joliet.

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