NY-Craigslist-Multiple Listings

* If responding to a Craigslist ad meet in a public place, or go with a friend. Google the phone number of the poster to
ensure it matches the name he or she gives *

LISTING REMOVED. Albion, near Rochester, NY: Eight month old sow being rehomed for small adoption fee. Socialized to children, described as a lovable sweetie who is good with children.

LISTING REMOVED. North Buffalo, NY: Repost of an absolutely adorable guinea pig who I fell in love with the first time he was posted too. One year old abby boar who comes with all supplies.

LISTING REMOVED. East Nassau, near Albany, NY: Get ready for some adorability. Two pigs must be rehomed as a pair. Have had a rough time of it. It seems the poster got them three weeks ago from someone on CL, and the pigs are too scared of her kids (it's a huge myth that guinea pigs, one of the most skittish animals on the planet, are the perfect pets for kids, well intentioned monsters with sticky, fast moving jam hands), so the pigs have to go. They are male and female, so she assumes the female will be pregnant (kind of nonchalantly, it's weird, that's a huge deal--better find an exotic vet ASAP if you're going to take up this pair). Come with lots of supplies for a reasonable rehoming fee.

LISTING REMOVED. Troy (near Albany), NY: Rescued girls being dumped on CL, it appears. The mind boggles with contradictions. Two peruvians, one has lone beautiful black hair, one has long beautiful tri-color hair (I'm guessing blue, red and orange). They're very bonded sisters and are a year old. An adoption fee will be discussed. They are very sweet and friendly, and hopefully I am being too harsh on the poster and the adopter will be well screened.

LISTING REMOVED Castleton (near Albany), NY: Two female pigs available for adoption with fee. About one year old and familiar with kids. Adoption fee includes cage, bedding, water bottle, food dish, carrier, and a leash which can promptly be thrown out or used for some creative purpose. Contact poster for more information.
