Firestarter's Info...

Firestarter's Story...
Cavy Care Inc., averages between 50 and 150 guinea pigs at anyone time so we usually have a broad choice of homeless guinea pigs. Pages are updated every two weeks or more if necessary.

Firestarter
Sex: female
Age:3 years
Breed: Silkie/Shelti
Color: All red
Description: This long haired beauty is sweet and content on the lap. Her hair (and yes it is hair like human hair. Guinea pigs do not have fur and that is why they are considered hypoallergenic) She is also considered one of the highest maintenance of guinea pigs and will require weekly if not daily grooming. She will require baths (see Youtube for videos on bathing) She has lived in a group and should be adopted as part of a pair, either paired with a single here (your choice from our other pairs) or paired with a lonely female you may have at home.

A Cavy Care Inc., adoption entitles you to a lifetime of free advice for the lifetime of your guinea pig. Also if something changes in your life that you can NOT keep the guinea pig, the guinea pigs MUST come back to the shelter and we will find them a new home...

$20 Fee For Pairing
Pairing involves bringing your guinea pig to the shelter. There we have you pick three guinea pigs we have helped you pick providing information we may have on them and the likelihood of pairing them. We then introduce them at which time Shannon will show you how pairing works and what to look for during the pairing process. There is no formula for pairing other than finding the right personalities to match.
There is a 50/50 chance we will not be able to find a pair that day. There is a 50/50 chance they will not remain paired at some point in the future. But if we are successful (and Shannon has an 85% success rate of pairing) then we waive the fee to pair and only charge the regular adoption fee. (see above).

Please complete the pre-adoption form first, appointments are scheduled only after being approved to adopt. http://www.cavycareinc.org/#!pre-adoption-form/c2076

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Firestarter, a Aurora 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 Aurora, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Aurora.

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