Comet and Shark — Petraits Rescue

Comet and Shark — Petraits Rescue

Comet and Shark are adorable, talkative, wiggly, active and fun, seven-month-old, male smooth coat guinea pig brothers looking for a loving guardian.

These boys came to Friends of Petraits Rescue when their human could no longer care for them.

Comet is a tri-color; Shark is mostly black with a ridge down his back. These boys get along well, play and chase 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, 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. They do love their fresh foods.

They would love a home with people who will handle them daily, keep them well fed, and keep their habitat nice and clean.

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