Otis's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, and good with small animals.

Otis's Story...
Otis is an approx. 3-6 month old male American short-haired guinea pig. His previous owner surrendered him to a over-crowded shelter. Otis was in a cage with 3 other males who "picked-on" him causing an injury to his ear at the shelter. We do not know any history or even why he was surrendered.
We have been working with Otis everyday since being with our rescue. He came to us very frightened and tended to nip. He doesn't like to be picked up or handled, He has really come a long way with trusting humans. He has calmed down considerably. Otis is NOT recommended for children. We are recommending an experienced guinea pig owner for Otis. He is not mean at all. He is actually a very sweet little guy. He has a great personality and is quiet. He does not like to be out of the safety of his cage. He would be a perfect fit for someone who would like a pet that doesn't require a lot of handling. He is absolutely fine when clipping his nails but he does run around his cage when trying to catch him. The rescue can provide a cage (29" L x 17" W x 16" H) , water bottle, hut and food dish.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Harleysville 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 Harleysville, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Harleysville.

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