Update 1/21/13: Congratulations to Lex and his new family!
Lex is a young piggy, about 6 months old. He is a little shy, but warms up to you with some treats and gentle pets. He is very cute and a lot of fun.
Lex was neutered on Nov. 15 and will be ready to go home with a female friend on Dec. 13.
Did you know that guinea pigs need to see exotics vets who are trained to understand their special anatomies and physiological needs? Be sure to have a good vet lined up before a problem arises. All of our adopters are given a card for an initial free vet exam at the Avian and Exotic Clinic of the Monterey Peninsula.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in meeting Lex.
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.
Update 1/21/13: Evan has a new family! Best wishes to everyone!
Handsome Evan was left behind when his family moved out of their rental unit. He came to us in a starter cage more suited to rats, with a bag of “gourmet” (i.e. “junk food”) kibble, so he is now on a healthy diet and exercise plan to trim up a bit.
Evan is a real lap piggy- he will sit with you and enjoys being stroked. He was neutered on November 1st and is very much looking forward to being able to meet some eligible single ladies soon. He will be safe to go home with a girlfriend after the 29th.
Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in meeting Evan.
