Girdini's Info...

Girdini's Story...
The owners of these lovely, well cared for Guinea Pigs needed assistance immediately - they could no longer care for their 35 little ones anymore.
These Guinea Pigs are very clean and will appreciate some space. They are not used to different people, yet they love being pampered while being clean.
Guinea Pigs can make great pets but do require lots of attention.
How much time do you have?

Guinea pigs need time out of their cage every day. Whether this time is spent stretching their legs and exploring new environments or cuddling in your lap, daily interaction and attention are essential for a guinea pig's well-being.

Guinea pigs need to be groomed regularly. Shorthaired breeds can be maintained with a once-a-week brushing while longhaired breeds require daily grooming.

A guinea pig's cage should be thoroughly cleaned on a weekly basis and spot-cleaned every few days. If you don't appreciate the smell of a dirty cage, consider how your guinea pig—who spends nearly all of her waking hours just centimeters above her bedding—feels about stinky living quarters.

Is a guinea pig right for your family?

If you're getting a guinea pig for your child, think carefully about how this animal’s care will fit into your family's schedule over the long haul.
Can your son or daughter incorporate pet ownership into a busy after-school schedule and evening and weekend commitments?
Are you willing to shoulder responsibility for your pig's care if your children drop the ball?
If you have other pets, are you sure your guinea pig will get enough attention?

Do you have young children?

Young children often lack fine motor control and self-restraint, which means they may inadvertently drop a guinea pig, squeeze him, or scare him into biting. Guinea pigs require a gentle touch and may be easily startled by sudden movement and loud noises.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Girdini, a Simcoe 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 Simcoe, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Simcoe.

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