NJ-North Jersey and Have-A-Heart Rescue-Spotlight!

I'd like to spotlight pigs from two large, wonderfully reputed New Jersey rescues. They have many more pigs than those I'm about to feature, so please if you are in New Jersey and looking for a guinea pig, or looking to become more involved in guinea pig care, contact them! They both have guinea pigs of all ages, breeds, and both sexes.

North Jersey Guinea Pig and Hamster Rescue
; Budd Lake, New Jersey: Giovanni!

North Jersey saved Giovanni from euthanization, and now he's been living the high life and is ready for a home! He is a two year old extra large Peruvian boy with a rooster tail. Look at the boy--he wants you to love him!

See the rest of Giovanni's friends here at North Jersey's complete pet list.

Have-A-Heart Guinea Pig Rescue has around 200 pigs in foster homes in PA, DE, and NJ.

Phil and Buddy are two bonded large adult males who have been with the rescue since December. They were surrendered because of allergies, but were much loved by their previous owner. They are used to cats, dogs, and kids. Phil is on the left and is three years old, and Buddy is on the right and is 2.5 years old. They're in Pemberton, NJ.

See the rest of Have-A-Heart's pigs at their complete small and furry pet list.

* 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. *
