Snow and Fluffy — Petraits Rescue

Snow and Fluffy — Petraits Rescue

Snow is a four-month-old white smooth coat guinea pig looking for a loving guardian with her friend Fluffy, a one-year-old Abyssinian guinea pig.

Both girls came into rescue alone and barely moving as the only pig in their cage. When they met, they jumped in the air, chased each other around, and even snuggled and groomed one another.

Guinea pigs are happiest in pairs, and these girls get along well.

Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays, 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. The girls’ favorite are cherry tomatoes!

Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.

Fluffy and Snow 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 Snow and Fluffy, please contact friendsofpetraits@gmail.com for an adoption application.

They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

Their adoption fee of $75 as a pair benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $100, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a large cage, pellets, hay, litter, hidey huts and water bottles.

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