LISTING REMOVED Nassau (Albany), NY: Nine week old male guinea pig, brown and white. Being rehomed due to missexing. GUINEA PIG LESSON: Males can impregnate females at 21 days (3 weeks) of age.

LISTING REMOVED Staten Island, NY: Two 8 week old guinea pigs, sex not specified, being rehomed (Boy or Girl? PREGNANCY ALERT) due to allergies. Comes with cages, extra food, bermuda hay, food dish, water bottle, toy.

LISTING REMOVED Long Island, NY: This ad is really a shame. A "rescued and rehabilitated piggy" deserves so much better than a life as a classroom pet, as does any animal. Here is a site that will help you determine whether your classroom is one of the rare classroom suitable to host pets. The piggy in question is one year old, socialized to people, used to going outside and grazing (must be supervised and on grass that's pesticide free).

NO LONGER AVAILABLE Irondequoit (Rochester), NY: Three month old female crested guinea pig being rehomed with cage, water bottle, vitamins for her water (DON'T use these), food dish, pigloo, bedding, timothy hay, treats (research on GuineaLynx to see if they're okay) and playpen. Pig is "nice and lovable" and is well socialized to people. Being rehomed because cats won't leave her alone.

LISTING REMOVED Newfield (Ithaca), NY: Young guinea pig ( Boy or Girl? ) being rehomed due to allergies. Comes with cage, bedding, and food.

LISTING REMOVED Beacon (Hudson Valley), NY: Six month old male guinea pig being rehomed because he is no longer getting along with his brother. In a similar situation yourself? Get tips on how to bond guinea pigs here: Social Life.

LISTING REMOVED Lima (Rochester), NY: Two females and one male being rehomed due to owner's health problems. Females (mother and daughter) must stay together. Come with cage and accessories. "Very sociable and used to children."

* AAGP recommends quarantining any new guinea pigs
for 2-3 weeks and confirming the sex yourself.
Many sad accidents or "accidents" can be avoided this way. *
