NJ-Craigslist-Three Listings

LISTING REMOVED. North New Jersey: Um, I kind of love this pig, so if someone winds up adopting her and sees this, can they please let me know and even send a phot-o, if possible? Thankya! She's 1 1/2 years old, and comes with her cage, carrying case, feed, and water bottle for a small rehoming fee. Being rehomed due to move. Guinea girl needs some new food; any food with colored pieces or corn in it isn't suitable for our dear guinea friends. Try Oxbow or Kleenmama's.

GUINEA PIG LESSON on TRANSPORTATION: When transporting your happy new pig from their old home to their new, forever home, a soft carrier like the one pictured isn't the best for a car. Knock on wood, should there be an accident, hard plastic carriers (like those used for cats and dogs) lined with towels for softness offer more security for the pig, assuming they are buckled in. Other tips: give your guinea some hay to make the ride more comfortable, and some water rich vegetables like romaine lettuce. Never hang a water bottle in the carrier because with the bumps in the road the water bottle might leak, and if the guinea is surrounded by wet towels they might catch a URI. Plus you might think your guinea is getting water to drink when it's not the case. Best to bring a water bottle separately and give your new guinea friend water during a driving break.

LISTING REMOVED. South Jersey: Guinea pig, sex and age not specified, comes with cage, toys, "little home," and an exercise ball, these can be fatal for guinea pigs as they can break their spines and bones in their feet.

LISTING REMOVED. Browns Mills, NJ: Male guinea pig that is less than one year old being rehomed.
