Sundae — Petraits Rescue
today at 9:18 am
Sundae is an adorable, very active and skittish, six-month-old, male Abyssinian tri-color guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.
Sundae came to Friends of Petraits Rescue when his human went back to college and said she had no time for him. She had bought him and a brother at a pet store, but the brother died soon after their purchase.
So, we think he will enjoy the company of other guinea 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, similar to humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement their diet with red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods. He LOVES his fresh foods and pulls them under his little hidey hut to enjoy them in privacy.

He would love a home with people who will handle him daily, keep him well fed, his nails trimmed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Sundae, 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.
