LISTING REMOVED Ledgedale (Poconos), PA: Two guinea pigs (among other pets) being rehomed due to lack of funds. Two females (presumed by names), Charlotte 1 y.o. orange/black/white shorthair, bonded with Josie, black/white six months old. Come with likely inappropriate cage, try: Cheaper, Larger Cages

LISTING REMOVED Lemoyne (Harrisburg), PA: Three guinea pigs being rehomed due to allergies. Poster purchased two from Petsmart for children, the guinea pigs were improperly sexed and reproduced, high chance they are pregnant again-PREGNANCY WATCH. Poster has a looming deadline for rehoming the pigs. A lesson in not bringing animals in as an impulse purchase.

LISTING REMOVED Canonsburg (Pittsburgh), PA: Two guinea pigs being rehomed due to lack of attention. One is black and smaller in size, the other is larger and "camel colored." Both are one year old. Come with cage and water bottles. Sex not specified=PREGNANCY WATCH/Boy or Girl?

* 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. *
