NY-Guinea Lynx Placement-5 m.o. male and 5 y.o. male

New York City, NY: Alfie is an adorable five month old male guinea pig who was abandoned in a vacant lot with his brother and sister (now in foster care). He's been fixed right up from the poor thin pig he was that day, and now he is a social, vocal, friendly boy! He even lets you pet his belly and responds to his own name!

Viejo is five years old, and other than some graying hair and a cataract in one eye, he's a healthy guy. He's very sweet, a cuddler, and an active jumper at floor time. He's a heart stealer too (you'll get the idea once you see his photo). He was surrendered to a local shelter, but was obviously cared for at his previous home. "He's a big sweet puff, and you'll love him."

* 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. *
