Willow's Info...

Willow's Story...
Willow is a super sweet and calm little girl. She is also quite stunning. She is a silkie, and has soft flowing white fur; but above each eye, she has a patch of light lilac. She loves to play with her cage mate and best friend, Sugar, but she also is just as happy to hang out in her igloo or under the hay bin. The one thing Willow loves above all else is to know what is going on around her; so at feeding time or when someone is passing by, she can be found at the front of her cage, trying to see what's going on. Willow and Sugar are bonded and must be adopted together.

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

Willow, 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.
