*NEW* Peanut is a poor piggy! Her owner passed away, and eventually she found herself at the shelter. She is a very sweet girl, in need of a forever home and some love.
Chuck (first pictured) Albuquerque (second pictured) and Filmore (third pictured pictured) are three brothers who were surrendered to the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. The three of them were purchased at auction then given to their owners, who never really wanted them in the first place. Please see the links below for helpful care tips. Their bio also offers helpful information. GUINEA PIG LESSON: If an animal is a gift it should be consensual. The surprise animal gift rarely works well for any parties involved (allergies, vet costs, ongoing costs, interest, space, life changes, etc.).
* 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. *
