NY-Craigslist-Hudson Valley YARD SALE GUINEA PIG

LISTING REMOVED New City, Rockland County: A guinea pig is being sold at a yard sale tomorrow morning 9 AM. This is just setting up for a disastrous impulse buy. I hope the guinea pig isn't outside. He or she could quickly die from heat stroke. Piggy comes with cage.

Do me a favor, dear reader, if you are near this neighborhood but aren't able to save the guinea pig yourself, could you print out and place a GuineaLynx Care Guide near the cage (with permission)? And make sure s/he's not out in the sun? If the guinea pig is, try and convince the owners to put him inside, perhaps with a sign saying there's a guinea pig indoors. Failing that, move piggy into the shade.

* 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. *
