I have two sweet female guinea pigs that I need to rehome to a responsible owner because my son has had constant allergy issues since we got them. I love these girls very much, but my son's health has to be top priority. With that said, let me tell you a bit about the girls...
I got Luna (brown piggy) back in July. She was a rescue piggy who had been living in a tiny cage, on her own for a year without proper nutrition. With lots of love and proper care, she started to thrive. After a month of having her, I got her a cage mate who I named Windy. After quarentine and introductions, I put them together to live. Luna is the dominant one because Windy was a baby when I got her. Luna tolerates Windy, but never plays with or snuggles her. I don't think either one would be stressed if seperated from one another. Windy actually wheeks with joy whenever I take Luna out for cuddles! For this reason, I believe that whoever adopts my piggies might have some luck putting Windy with other pigs to play with and possibly letting Luna live on her own since that's what she was accustomed to.
Regardless of what you decide to do with keeping them together or not, YOU MUST BE KNOWLEDGABLE ON PROPER CARE OF GUINEA PIGS. Before I rehome them, I will need to ask you several questions to assure that they're going to a good home.
For a rehoming fee of $70 I will include:
*half a bag of hay
*half a bag of pellets
*two hidey huts
*all fleece and towels used as bedding.
*two dish bowels
*a few chew toys
*a bag of fresh lettuce
*small dust pan and broom for cleaning cage
*and of course the two piggies.
Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.
Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
