Update 2/4/14: Henry has been adopted! He is now enjoying life with a delightful new girlfriend and loving piggy parents! Congratulations to everyone!

Henry is a handsome Peruvian boy. He is friendly and easy to handle. His long locks will need to be cared for all of his life, so be sure you enjoy that sort of work or are willing to take him in to be groomed every 3 months before committing to adopting him!

Did you know that most pet store cages are too small for guinea pigs? Just because there is a picture of a guinea pig on the box doesn’t mean that your piggies will be happy crowded into that little space! Guinea Pig Cages has lots of great ideas for housing guinea pigs so they have the room they need to run around, as well as space for their huts, beds, hay boxes, food dishes, and toys.

Henry has been neutered and will be “girl-safe” mid-January. Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting this darling boy to be a friend for your guinea pig.

Update 2/25/14: Kayla and Honey are now at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose, and available for adoption through North Star Rescue.

Kayla and Honey are both about 1 1/2 years old, with Kayla being a few weeks older than Honey. They are sweet and delightful girls. Like all guinea pigs, they are especially skilled at turning hay into “gardener’s black gold” and will be doubly pleased if you plant an extra row of veggies just for them!

Update 10/7/14: Almond Joy and Kahlua are now living with their friend Coconut and will remain here at Friendly Farms as part of our sanctuary program.

Isn’t this couple adorable? Kahlua is the darling girl with her head tucked under her hero Almond Joy’s chin.

Kahlua and Almond Joy are 3 years old and must be adopted together. Almond Joy has been neutered. They are used to being handled and have lived in a household with dogs and birds.

Kahlua had a serious case of pneumonia when she was a young girl. She lost the use of one lung, but the other lung is working fine and she can run and play just like the other piggies. However, she will need this condition to be monitored during her yearly well-piggy exam.

Tootsie Roll and Piglet have been adopted! Congratulations to them and their new family! May you have many delightful years together!

Tootsie Roll and Piglet are a darling guinea pig couple. Tootsie Roll is the lovely girl on the left. They are social piggies who will take treats from your hand and are fine with being snuggled and cooed over.

Handsome Piglet has had some problems with bladder stones in the past, so he needs to be on a healthy diet- no junk food or high calcium foods for this boy! He has been neutered.

He and Tootsie Roll are 3 years old, and they must remain together. They can also be adopted with their friends Coconut and Midnight, or Almond Joy and Kalua.

For more information about living with guinea pigs, please visit Guinea Lynx. Guinea Pig Cages has great housing ideas.

Please Welcome Thomas and the Harvest Home Rescue Girls!

Thomas713

Update 10/13: We have found a couple of eggs in the yard, so it seems our young goose is a girl! We have renamed her Thomasina and call her Tomi. Bigfoot couldn’t be more delighted.

We are pleased to welcome Thomas, a young goose who ended up at a Los Angeles shelter, to Friendly Farms!

Here is a short movie of him enjoying his daily salad: Thomas

We also recently took 6 egg farm hens into retirement. These girls suffered through 2 1/2 years as layers in battery cages. They will always have the clipped beaks to remind us of their past, but they are dust bathing, enjoying their salads, and laying in the sun with our other hens, their worth no longer dependent on their ability to lay lots of eggs.

HarvestHomeRescueHens713

If you would like to adopt some hens into your family, the British Hen Welfare Trust has some good articles on care and housing.

For California residents, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, Animal Place, and Farm Sanctuary are all active in bringing egg farm hens and other farmed animals to safety and loving homes.
