Scotty's Info...

I am good with kids and good with small animals.

Scotty's Story...
Scotty is a little cream/white and black 9 month old male who is really handsome. This little boy came into the rescue with an infected ear from being with other pigs that were more dominant. His ear is healed and he was put in a large C&C cage with a divider between him and Rex (who was paired with a baby at the time.) Scotty kept finding a way to get over with Rex, and I finally just gave up and left them together. Now they share igloos together and are the best of friends and must be adopted together. These boys are used to dogs, cats and kids and would make wonderful forever family friends.

Guinea pigs are social animals, and should always have a friend of their own kind. These wonderful little creatures live an average of 5 to 7 years, and I've even had them live up till they were 9 and 10 1/2. Children under the age of 12 should always be supervised by an adult when holding guinea pigs. They are also vegetarians. Among their favoriite veggies are Romaine, Parsley, Green leaf/Red leaf lettuce, Endive, Collard Greens, Kale, Tomatoes, Carrots (in moderation) and Green/Red/Yellow or Orange peppers, just to name a few

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scotty, a Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Pittsburgh.

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