Hollywood is an adorable, talkative, active and fun, eight-month-old, male Abyssinian guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.
Hollywood came to Friends of Petraits Rescue when his human purchased a male and female guinea pig as babies. The female became pregnant three times at a young age, so rather than separating them, they were all given up to rescue.
He does love other guinea pigs; however he hasn’t lived with other males since he was a baby. He is very social and may like a friend.
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 Hollywood, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/.
He is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
His adoption fee of $60 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for him including a large cage, litter, pellets, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
