Bullseye and Carob — Petraits Rescue

Bullseye and Carob — Petraits Rescue

Guinea Pig baby boy Bullseye is a four-week-old crowned or crested pig; his best buddy is a seven-week-old chocolate smoothcoat pig.

These boys romp and chase each other, but get along well and keep each other active.

Baby Bullseye was born on June 28th in a loving foster home where he was beautifully socialized from day one. Carob was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control with a number of other guinea pigs.

They are sweet, extremely talkative and fun guinea pigs. They make adorable whistles, squeals, chirps, squeaks and purring noises-especially when they hear their food coming. And, they are fantastic and adventurous eaters.

Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays, limited pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, etc. Guinea pigs, like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with red pepper or 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/.

They 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 Bullseye and Carob, please contact friendsofpetraits@gmail.com for an adoption application.

They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

Their adoption fee of $70 as a pair benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $100, we’ll include absolutely everything you need to care for them including a huge cage, pellets, hay, litter, hidey huts and water bottles.

And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions during the pandemic.
