Sugar's Info...

Sugar's Story...
Sugar is a gorgeous lilac/tan agouti little girl. The pictures don't do justice to the unusual colorations of her fur. Sugar is an absolute sweetheart that just loves to have fun. It doesn't matter if it's playing with her cage mate and best friend, Willlow; or by herself just doing zoomies around her cage. If there is an igloo in the cage, she will jump on it and then into the hay bin. There's no telling what she is going to think of next. But there is also a serious side to Sugar..... don't get between her and her food! At feeding time, she and Willow will come to the front of the cage and let you know they want fed. These girls are best friends and must be adopted together. They would be excellant for any family situation.

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

Sugar, 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.
