Aston (Philadelphia), PA
: Two friendly bonded males being rehomed and housed on TOXIC CEDAR BEDDING. See appropriate Bedding. Peanut is the lighter pig, and is calmer, extremely friendly, and is very well socialized. Popeye is the darker pig, is just as friendly, but a bit more active.

York, PA: Two six month old girls being rehomed due to owner having a baby. Come with cage, bedding, food, toys. Owner willing to transport to Southern PA, Northern MD and within reason.

Hatboro (Philadelphia), PA: Two 1.5 y.o sisters being rehomed due to children losing interest. Calico colored, one is an abby, the other has "silky short hair." Though they are a bit skittish due to not being held much, they do not bite. They are "very sweet" when they are held.

LISTING REMOVED Pittsburgh (South Hills), PA: Two female guinea pigs being rehomed due to move. Come with cage, house, water bottle, food bowl, wooden chew toys, food (pellets and alfalfa) and any left over bedding. "Very sweet and vocal," enjoy floor time. Very bonded, must be adopted together.

Elizabeth (Pittsburgh), PA: 8 month old female shorthair guinea pig being rehomed due to lack of attention. Comes with DANGEROUS CAGE-wire floored cages cause bumblefoot, water bottle, food, bedding, other accessories. Also vitamin drops (don't put these in the water, that's a guinea pig myth-they're not water soluble so they stop working after about five minutes and then the water just tastes bad. Reduced water consumption leads to a host of other problems. And what will a non-Cavy Savvy Vet often diagnose and then prescribe? Scurvy, and vitamin C drops!

Philadelphia, PA
: Bonded males Peanut and Cocoa being rehomed due to owner transitioning to college.

* 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. *
