Darwin — Petraits Rescue

Darwin — Petraits Rescue

Darwin is an adorable, fast and sweet, six-month-old, male tri-color guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.

Darwin was relinquished to Friends of Petraits Rescue when his human moved to a no pets apartment. Sadly, he had a partner guinea pig that was lost under his human’s porch during the move.

Guinea pigs are happiest in pairs, and we’d love to see Darwin find another young male to bond with. And, I do hope his best friend is located.

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.

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 Darwin, please contact friendsofpetraits@gmail.com for an 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 $100, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for him including a large cage, pellets, hay, litter, hidey hut and water bottle.

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