Chip and Dale — Petraits Rescue
today at 8:38 am
Chip and Dale are adorable and extremely sweet and handleable, six-month-old male guinea pigs looking for a loving guardian together.
Chip is a black and white smooth coat; Dale is an agouti long-haired guinea pig. These young pigs were turned into Friends of Petraits Rescue after being purchased at a pet store. Sadly, their human found himself too busy to care for them.
Guinea pigs are happiest in pairs, and these boys get along beautifully.
Because Dale has long hair, he will need daily brushing and regular grooming to keep his hair from matting.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays, pellets and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, etc. Guinea pigs, just like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
These boys would love a home with people who will handle them daily, keep them well fed, and keep their habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Chip and Dale, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application.
She is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $80 as a pair benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $100, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a large cage, pellets, hay, litter, hidey huts and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
