This handsome boy was brought to the shelter with his two sons, Chip and Dale. He is a fun and playful guinea pig, but can be a little nippy when being held, so we recommend an experienced family for him.
Larry was neutered on May 9 and will be ‘girl safe’ as of June 6. He can be adopted as a friend for your compatible guinea pig or with his two sons. They are scheduled for their neuter surgeries in early June and will be available for adoption on June 16th.
Please visit Guinea Lynx for information about living with guinea pigs. Cavy Cages has great housing ideas.
If you are interested in adopting Larry, please contact us here at Friendly Farms.
Snuggles is a delightful young boy who loves to be petted almost as much as he loves playing! He is just a few months old and is really looking forward to a new home where he can run and jump and do the Bunny 500!
Snuggles has been neutered and is ready to go home with a family. He is currently at Salinas Animal Services, where his shelter number is: #A076704. Please contact Friendly Farms or the shelter for more information about this terrific boy!

Update 4/20/13: Charlotte has been learning how to do burn-outs and binkies and is ready to go home with a loving family. Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting her.
Update 4/10/13: Charlotte was spayed last week and the vet also surgically removed a large stone from her bladder. She is able to keep herself clean now, though she still has more weight to shed before she can be considered trim.
Charlotte will be available for adoption through Friendly Farms once she is off of medications and given a clean bill of health by our vet. Contact us if you are interested in giving this little girl a loving forever home.
Charlotte is a lovely girl with gorgeous black eyeliner. She is very frightened because of all of the new sounds and smells at the shelter, and will show her true personality when she feels secure in a new home. She was very good for her clean up and nail trim today.
Charlotte is very overweight and unable to clean herself. It will take a few months on a proper rabbit diet to get her down to a good weight. In the meantime, she needs help keeping her bottom clean.
She is scheduled to be spayed on Thurs. April 4.
Charlotte is at Monterey County Animal Services. Contact us or the shelter to learn more about this sweet girl. She is looking forward to a new life in a loving home.

Ariel is a gorgeous girl with lovely dark eyes. She runs up to see you when you approach her and will eagerly take treats from your hand. She is learning to enjoy being petted, but being picked up is still too scary for her!
Like most guinea pigs, Ariel enjoys hanging out with other piggies while you are off doing your human things- school, shopping, etc.- and then having some quality time with you when she has your full attention. Guinea pigs naturally live in herds of one male and one or more females, and a few dates will usually turn up a compatible friend for a lonely piggy.
Did you know that one of the most fun ways to socialize with your guinea pigs is in a pen big enough for you to sit with them while they run around? An exercise pen placed over a plastic tablecloth from the dollar store with an old sheet covering it to keep it from tearing from piggy nails, protects the floor and keeps your pigs from hiding under the furniture or getting lost in the stuff in the closet. A cardboard box or two with doors cut in them, a litter box with newspaper or litter in the bottom and a big pile of hay on top, and maybe a timothy tunnel makes a fun play land that you are part of! Exercise balls are dangerous for guinea pigs and should never be used.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting sweet Ariel.
Storm is an inquisitive and friendly girl who loves to be part of whatever is going on. She prefers not to be picked up, but is pretty calm while being held and asks for lots of head scritches and ear rubs.
Like all guinea pigs, Storm needs a source of vitamin C everyday, because, like humans, guinea pigs do not manufacture their own. While vitamin C is added to guinea pig pellets, the best sources are in their daily salads of fresh leafy greens like cilantro, carrot tops, dandelion greens and romaine lettuce. A cherry tomato or chunk of bell pepper is a great addition for even more C, and a small piece of fruit like a mandarin orange piece or a couple of blueberries makes a nice healthy treat.
If you are interested in making Storm part of your family, please contact us here at Friendly Farms.
Lester and Babs are an adorable brother and sister, born in early 2012. They are very friendly and a delight to watch running and playing.
Lester has dark urine from crystals forming in his bladder. This is a condition that will have to be monitored throughout his lifetime, and his guardians will have to be very careful about keeping him on a strictly healthy diet. He should see the vet twice a year for checkups and immediately anytime that his urine changes, he is straining to urinate, or he seems lethargic.
Lester and Babs have been getting lots of love and attention in foster care. They are easy to handle and are fine with being held and stroked.

Update 10/14/11: Casey’s wound has fully healed, he has been neutered, and he is available for adoption! This darling little boy will bring smiles to the lucky family who takes him home!
Update 9/20/11: Casey’s wound is healing very well, and should be completely gone within a couple of weeks. We are hoping to schedule his neuter for early October.
WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW
Casey is our newest medical needs rescue. He came to the shelter with a large maggot-infested wound to his hindquarters, an injured eye, bad teeth, and a strong will to live. The terrific shelter vet and staff cleaned his wound and started him on medication. Shelter management decided not to keep him, so we took him to the Avian and Exotic Clinic and got a treatment plan for him.
Casey is now well on his way to recovery. His wound is healing nicely, and has now been closed up, except for a drain. His eye is looking better, but will still need medication and watching for a few more weeks. The vet trimmed his molars and incisors under anesthesia, and hopefully that will be the last of his tooth issues. Casey has done his part by eating constantly to regain his weight, and by keeping a great attitude. He has been a very good boy through all of his wound cleanings and medications.
Wound first week.
We would like to raise $500 to cover Casey’s medical bills. To donate directly to our medical fund, please contact the Avian and Exotic Clinic and tell them the money is for Casey at Friendly Farms.
Wound second week – closed with drain.
Casey will be available for adoption after his neuter surgery, which we will schedule once his wound has finished healing. For more information about this amazing little boy, contact us here at Friendly Farms.
Update 6/22/11: Houdini is now available for adoption through Friendly Farms. Please contact us for more information about this handsome boy.
Houdini is a sweet boy whose family abandoned him at the shelter so they could go traveling. He is 6 years old, and one of Oreo’s friends.
Houdini is understandably upset about losing his home right now, but he will do well with a new, loving family who will commit to a lifetime with him. He is used to living with other rabbits and would appreciate a compatible friend. Houdini has been neutered.
Update 5/31/11: Noodles is now being sponsored by House Rabbit Society and has moved to the Rabbit Center in Richmond, California. She is hoping to be in a loving home soon, and is available for dates with polite gentleman bunnies who are ready to share their space with a lovely girl.
Do you like a little rabbitude in your bunnies? Noodles is a cute little girl with her own opinions! She is about 1 year old now, and has spent all of her life at the shelter, so she is especially looking forward to a fresh start in a new home.
Noodles has been spayed and is good with her litter box. She will do very well in a home where she is allowed to be herself. She will need time and space for her personality to blossom and close relationships to form.
Visit Noodles at the SPCA for Monterey County. They are open for adoptions Monday – Friday from 11am to 5pm, Saturday – Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Contact the shelter or Friendly Farms for more information on how to make this girl part of your family.
