ALL: Guinea Pig Free to a Good Home

  • News Item

Free to good home: Our lovely abyssinian guinea pig Lighty lost her companion overnight, and we have made the tough decision to try and re-home her. Lighty is a retired 'pets as therapy' guinea pig. She hasn't been handled much in recent years and is shy but very gentle. She was perfectly happy with her companion guinea pig and little other attention, but we are afraid that without her, Lighty will now pine. She would ideally go to a home with another female guinea pig, or otherwise to a home where she can be offered some daily attention. She comes with lots of food, containers and wood shavings, and you can also have her hutch if you like, which is five years old and in fair condition. Please contact Kylie Smith: 0408292154.
