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.
