Update 6/9/14: Pauly and Agnes have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new family!
Update 4/27/14: Agnes and Pauly are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.
Pauly and Agnes were rescued from Manzanita Park just after the New Year. Pauly was neutered in February, and Agnes delivered her babies in March. Now that the babies have been weaned and moved out, Agnes and Pauly are ready to go to their own loving, forever home!
Pauly and Agnes have learned all about taking treats from human hands. They are still shy about being held and stroked, but will come around with regular gentle handling.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms for more information about adopting this sweet pair.

Update 6/20/14: The three girls have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new families!
Update 4/27/14: Pearl, Crystal and Angela are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.
Crystal, Angela and Pearl and their two brothers, Michael and Angelo, were born on March 11. Five babies is a large litter for guinea pigs, but Agnes did an excellent job of feeding and caring for them. The babies are now weaned and the girls are ready for adoption!
All three girls are white with dark eyes. Since they all look like fellow Manzanita Park piggy Nestor, we assume he is the daddy, but Pauly has been a terrific stepdad.

The girls may be adopted as a trio, a pair, or a single girl may be a friend for your female or neutered male guinea pig. Guinea Lynx has lots of great info about caring for guinea pigs. North Star has a nice guide to housing.
Crystal gets some big air!

Update 5/22/14: Mochi and Clover have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new family!
Update 4/27/14: Clover and Mochi are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.
Mochi and Clover are sisters. Aren’t they lovely? They are about 2 1/2 years old now.
They are a little shy and not used to being picked up, but, like all guinea pigs, Clover and Mochi are social animals, and their humans need to work everyday to be a trusted part of the herd. Hand feeding them their veggies and talking to them when you are visiting help them to know you are a friend. Here is a good video on how to tame your guinea pigs.
We have had them for just over a week now. At first they hid in their house when we came into the room, but now they are front and center at mealtimes, and it is getting easier to pick them up and stroke them at every cage cleaning.
Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting these gorgeous ladies.

Update: Ariel is now with Cavy World Guinea Pig Rescue in El Sobrante, CA. Please contact them for information about adopting this adorable girl.
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.
Update 6/13: Storm has been adopted! Congratulations to her and her new family!
Update: Storm has been transferred to Cavy World Guinea Pig Rescue in El Sobrante, CA. Please contact them for information about adopting this adorable girl.
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.
Sweet Andy now has a girlfriend and a loving forever home! Thank you to Judy of RabbitEARS!
Andy was found in a shoebox by some trashcans before he came to us. We don’t know how long it was between when he was discarded and discovered, but he had a voracious appetite the first week after his rescue.
Andy is about 2 years old, with a very sweet personality. He has been neutered and is safe to introduce to girls now with no chance of pregnancy.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in giving this darling boy a loving, forever home.
Update 9/10/12: Ernie has been adopted! May he and his new family have many happy years together!
Update 8/26/12: Ernie is now available for adoption through RabbitEARS in El Cerrito. Please contact RabbitEARS if you are interested in meeting him.
Ernie is a fun boy, about 1 year old now. He has been neutered and will be ready to meet girls after August 7. Guinea pigs are social animals who naturally live in groups of one male and one or more females, and they are happiest when they have other guinea pig friends to pal around with when their people are busy doing human stuff like work, school, shopping, etc.
Ernie is shy and it will take some time for him to be used to handling, but he will take food from your hand and loves being part of the household. Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in making him part of your loving family.
