PA-Central PA Humane Society-3 young short hairs

Central PA Humane Society; Altoona, PA: Guido, Hammie, and Maria!

"Central PA Humane Society animals may be seconds but they are not irregulars!"
--From the website

Guido is a small young male who loves on people, and lets people love on him. He likes being held. What a cuddly pig!

Hammie is an adorable guy who has been handled regularly by the shelter staff and is "friendly, calm, and nice." He's easy to pick up, which is a lucky thing to find a pig--they're speedy! Hammie has a wide variety of veggies he loves. Read about all the great choices at Proper Diet.

Maria is the beautiful young mother of these two boys. Something to ask about, if you are interested in adopting Maria, is whether she's being housed together with Guido and Hammie and how old she is. There may be a PREGNANCY WATCH. Guinea pig females are fertile at 28 days, and guinea pig males are fertile at 21 days. Guinea pig females can be back bred immediately after giving birth.

* 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. *
