Nice to meet you, my name is Harold. I am the most dapper gentleman you will ever meet. My hair is long and silky, so my new family will have to keep up with consistent brushing and hair trims.
I was surrendered to the shelter with 2 other male guinea pigs, and we do NOT get along. My new home will need to have me as the only child where I am spoiled to pieces, or be prepared to try bonding me with another male pig. I would avoid housing me with a lady piggy, as I am quite the charmer, and I am not prepared to be a father.
I would love a home that can provide me with lots of love, attention, and enrichment. Us guinea pigs need 24/7 access to fresh timothy hay to munch on and a very limited amount of pellets. We enjoy fresh leafy greens, bell peppers, and other pig safe vegetables with an occasional fruit as a treat. I enjoy living in a spacious enclosure with plenty of floor time to exercise.

Thank you for your interest in adopting! If you think you can provide a loving home for me, send the following application to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
