Chai; in desperate need of a new home

C Updated

Our Story

I received Chai as a gift 4 years ago, completely unprompted. I was under qualified to care for a Guinea pig, but I did my research and did my best to give her the best care I could. She has been with me throughout all of college, and lived with her sister, Chili, for around two years. Chili passed around a year ago, and I have been unable to get her a new friend to live with. I face severe mental health problems, and as a result the quality of her care has deteriorated. I just want her to live the best life possible, with someone who has the mental stability to properly care for her. Given she is around 4 years old, and turning 5 in August, I would love for her adopter to keep me updated on how she is doing, and let me know if she passes.

Rehoming because

Chai lost her sister a year or two ago, and as much as I meant to get her a new friend, I knew I did not have the mental capacity to take care of two pigs.
I have been facing severe mental health and financial issues and I am just unable to provide her the care she deserves anymore.

Can you SHIP?

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.

But I want THAT one!

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!
