Petunia – Adopted!

Posted in Adopted!, Transferred at 12:24 AM by Lori

Update 8/26/12: Petunia has been adopted to be a friend for another rescued piggy who recently lost her pal. Thank you to Judy of RabbitEARS and Petunia’s new family!

This darling girl is about 2 years old. She is sweet, easy to handle, and cute as a button!

Petunia loves the usual guinea pig joys- a big pile of grass hay to forage through, fresh leafy greens for breakfast and dinner, room to run, and other guinea pigs to adventure with while her humans are at school or work.

Guinea Lynx has lots of great information about caring for guinea pigs. Cavy Cages has terrific housing ideas.

Did you know that guinea pigs can live on fleece as an alternative to litter? Here and here are good videos that show how it is done.

Petunia is looking forward to meeting your female or neutered male guinea pig(s). Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting this precious girl.


Celebrating the end of foie gras in California!

Bigfoot and Fanny enjoying life and each other here at Friendly Farms. Geese bond for life, and these two have spent all 13 of their years together as a devoted couple.

Seven years ago, the California Legislature voted to make foie gras, the diseased livers of force-fed ducks or geese, illegal in our great State. This July that ban goes into effect, freeing our water-loving fowl from this cruel short life and gruesome fate. We here at Friendly Farms are delighted to see the end of this torture, and thank the elected officials who voted with compassion for our feathered friends and all of the animal advocates behind the scenes who brought attention to this cruelty.
