Say hello to the most polite Hooligan you’ll ever meet! This lovely boy has been living as a solo piggy since falling out with his male companion. He needs a home who will be gentle with him but also give him lots of love, attention, and tasty snacks! He absolutely adores his hay, and will burrow in it and play with it when he’s in a lively mood. He is easy to handle, but adopters should be aware that since guinea pigs are prey animals they tend to get startled easily and often don’t enjoy being picked up.
An adoption counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
If you think this animal is a match for you please fill out an adoption application online and submit it to email@example.com today: https://spca.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/BC_SPCA_Cavy_Matching_Survey.pdf or visit the animal centre during our viewing hours of 1pm-4pm Tuesdays to Saturdays.
***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting first potential matching adopters to further review their application. We are not be able to call all applicants.***
