NY-Craigslist-Buffalo / Rochester

*If responding to an ad by an individual, meet in a public place
or go with a friend. Google the phone number of the poster to
ensure it matches the name he or she gives *

(Buffalo), NY: Atlas is a "very friendly" 1.5 year old male guinea pig, and separately offered for adoption is Widget, a one year old blonde guinea pig male with the "greatest personality."

Rochester, NY: Two bonded sisters, 4-5 month old GPs, one a black/white american, the other a black/dark orange abyssinian. "Playful, vocal, and clearly very cute!" Being rehomed due to lack of time. Come with too small cage ( Cheaper, Better Cages) and accessories, and any remaining bedding and food. Want a guinea pig experienced home or one willing to give a lot of out of cage time.

: Carrots are only good as an occasional treat, and are basically equivalent to junk food for guinea pigs. Learn about what to feed your new friend here: Proper Diet . Pellets also shouldn't have colored pieces or corn. The pig on the left should never be bred because she carries the dangerous ROAN gene and could produce a lethal baby.

Greece (Rochester), NY
: Two female guinea pigs being rehomed, one is a teddy, one crested, due to life style change. Come with cage and dishes, poster will screen potential adopters. Honey Bear is the teddy, and has resulting dry skin. GUINEA PIG LESSON: BAG BALM IS TOXIC TO GUINEA PIGS! Try humilac for dry skin, and use ivermectin to treat for mites.

* 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. *
