These two are so bonded with one another that they must go home together. Baby and Sandy Cane would like to live with adults and with kids over 12 years of age. They may also be willing to get acquainted with a canine, although they have no prior experience.

Tyson can live in a single family home or condo.

SMALL AND FURRY:

GUINEA PIG
1 YEAR OLD
MALE
TAN AND WHITE
NAME: REX
ADOPTION CENTER: NEWINGTON AND WESTPORT

We have eight (8) Guinea Pigs in two of our locations. The Guinea Pig, also called a cavy, is one popular pet! They are relatively easy to care for, docile and are responsive to kind and gentle handling. When handled correctly, guinea pigs enjoy being picked up and carried. They are curious critters and enjoy exploring, especially when on familiar territory. They are not as likely to investigate the world with their mouths as some of their rodent family friends but they are curious critters and enjoy exploring, especially when on familiar territory. They can also be trained to respond to tricks and, when bonded to their owner, may respond eagerly to the sound of his/her voice! Guinea pigs are social animals who prefer to live in small groups. Two or more females will become great friends. If you want two males, it’s best to choose two babies from the same litter. Since guinea pigs multiply rapidly, keeping males and females together is not recommended. Just like humans, guinea pigs need to get vitamin C from their diet, so they need special food and fresh veggies. Guinea pigs can live in pairs or alone. On average, cavies weigh 2 pounds and can live 6-8 years with proper care.
