Chocolate Chip and Oreo are a pair of adorable, sweet and fun one-year-old, bonded male guinea pigs looking for a loving guardian together.
These boys were relinquished to Friends of Petraits Rescue by a family that could no longer care for them.
Chocolate Chip is a smooth coat; Oreo is a crested or crowned guinea pig.
Guinea pigs are happiest in pairs, Chocolate Chip and Oreo, while not related, have lived together most of their lives.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays. They are currently eating just a handful of guinea pig pellets, and a lot of 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, orange slices, 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/
The boys 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 meeting and possibly adopting Chocolate Chip and Oreo, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/ and follow up by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment to meet them.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $60 each benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a large cage, pellets, litter, hay, hidey huts, and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
