Goosebump — Petraits Rescue
today at 7:43 am
Goosebump is an adorable, talkative, active and fun, one-year-old, male neutered, crested guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.
Goosebump came to Friends of Petraits Rescue when his human dropped him off at Chicago Animal Care and Control.
He didn’t get along with any of the other guinea pigs, so he has since been neutered and hoping for a loving family with or without other pigs. Even if he’s living in a home with another guinea pig in another cage, guinea pigs enjoy chatting with each other.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful of guinea pig 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. He LOVES his fresh foods and begs for them!
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
He would love a home with people who will handle him daily, keep him well fed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Goosebump, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/.
He is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
His adoption fee of $35 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for him including a large cage, pellets, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
