Nutmeg's Story...
Nutmeg is a super sweet girl who is a bit shy but has a big personality. She is very talkative though when she hears the sound of a fridge door or a veggie bag rustle. She would do well with kids and long as she is supervised closely while being handled. Mama Nutmeg will need a home where her new "fur"ever family is patient and slowly works with her to gain her trust. She has had two separate litters of piggies, the most recent set being born on New Years day, and will need to go to a home where she is only housed with other females or kept as a single lady as having more litters of piggies could be extremely dangerous for her health due to her age. She is now around 1 1/2yrs of age. Her adoption fee is $35.

RCHS guinea pigs live in loving foster homes where they are socialized, given sufficient exercise outside of their cage, and fed a diet of grass hay, Timothy pellets, and fresh vegetables daily to maintain a healthy weight. Guinea pigs do require a vet trained in exotic animal medicine and have special housing and dietary needs. We encourage you to please research guinea pigs thoroughly before adopting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nutmeg, 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.
