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.
Update 3/16: Sadly, Lester passed away unexpectedly. Babs has moved in with Pooh Bear and Almond Joy and will remain with us as a sanctuary piggie.
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 9/10/12: Bert has been adopted! Congratulations to him and his new family!
Update 8/26/12: Bert is now available for adoption through RabbitEARS in El Cerrito. Please contact RabbitEARS if you are interested in meeting him.
Bert is about 1 year old, and he loves to run and popcorn. He was neutered on July 10 and will be “girl safe” as of August 7. He is looking forward to living with other guinea pigs again.
Bert is a little shy and not used to being handled, but he is friendly and curious and loves taking treats from your hand.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting Bert.
