8 Month Old Pair of Male American Guinea Pigs -- "Racecar" & "Honey"

We have a pair of male guinea pigs looking for their forever home. These guinea pigs are named Racecar and Honey. A single dad originally bought Racecar, Honey, and another guinea pig Elsa (female, caged separately) from someone as pets for his three kids. It only took 5 days before he realized that three guinea pigs took much more care than he could manage, and he brought them to us. Hopefully, their next homes will be for much longer! We are already their third “home” – sad.


Racecar and Honey are thought to be possibly brothers. They are both American guinea pigs. We were told they were born in March 2018, which makes them 8 months old. Honey is the Halloween-colored guinea pig, he’s the tricolor (red, black, and white), and Racecar is the agouti, cream, and white guinea pig.


These guinea pigs are very curious and friendly. They are your typical guinea pigs as far as being a little shy and skittish, but once you are holding them in your hands, the calm down immensely! We’re sure you can also win them over with yummy hay or veggies! Even without food, if you’re patient, they are curious and will eventually approach. They love to come to the front of the cage when they think you might have something tasty for them! They just LOVE their hay and veggies, and haven’t yet met anything that they’re not crazy about eating. Easy to please guinea pigs. They are super sweet. They do well with having their nails trimmed and love their igloo. Neither of these guinea pigs have ever bitten anyone.


Racecar & Honey are a pair of guinea pigs and can ONLY be adopted out together into their new home. Please do not contact us and ask if you can only adopt one guinea pig – these two must go to their new home together.


These guinea pigs get along well with each other, but we make no guarantees as to whether they will get along with your guinea pig.


These guinea pigs did come from a home with small children, so they are used to being around small children and being handled by them. An adult may have to catch them, but they can definitely be handled by kids.


The adoption fee for Racecar and Honey is $60


3 Year Old Neutered Male (Buck) Netherland Dwarf Male Rabbit -- "Buns"

Please note: Buns is being fostered in Munster, Indiana.  Please allow for time for his adoption or his transfer if adopting from somewhere other than his foster home.


We have a neutered buck (male) rabbit up for adoption, names Buns. Buns is a Netherland Dwarf rabbit. He has been neutered (prior to coming here). Buns’s color is black otter, which is a mainly black rabbit with white trim. Very cute! Buns is about 3-5 pounds and we have down that he was born around November 2015, making him 3 years old.


Buns came into the rescue when his previous home wasn’t able to keep him any longer. Originally, they had Buns as a house rabbit, and when they did, he used his litter box all the time. Unfortunately, when they moved to a place where he was not able to free-roam, Buns had to move into a cage, and was not so thrilled about this, so he decided to not use his litter box so regularly. He got to the point of being cage aggressive, where he wasn’t a huge fan of anyone reaching into his cage, and also wasn’t a fan of going back into his cage after being out for playtime. He bit his previous home a few times when they were trying to put him back in his cage.


At his foster home in Munster, he is currently still in a regular cage, and definitely is territorial over it! He will lunge at you if you reach in the cage, and as a result, we intend to switch him to a different style cage at the first opportunity we have to meet with his foster home. Interestingly enough, Buns is much more ok with being picked up from above, or someone reaching in the cage from above… just he doesn’t like someone reaching in, at his level. In a perfect world, we’d like Buns to go to a home where he could have a lot of out-of-cage time, or even be a house rabbit. As that may not be possible, if the new home intends to use a cage (as opposed to an x-pen or free roaming) for Buns, we will be including a cage with him. This cage – the guinea pig habitat plus (with top) https://www.amazon.com/Top-Panel-Guinea-Habitat-Plus/dp/B001NJ0DQ8?th=1 – that way, new homes can reach in from the top, and not have such worries about the territory issues.


We would not recommend that Buns go to a home with kids any younger than teenagers, due to his tendencies.


When Buns is not in his cage, he is a very curious rabbit and loves to explore. When you’re actually holding him in your arms, he’s actually super sweet and will chill with you for quite some time… it’s just getting him out of the cage that’s a little iffy… but other than that, he’s pretty awesome! Buns has never bitten anyone here or at the foster home, and we believe that using the appropriate style cage / habitat setup for him will significantly lessen the chance of aggressive behavior in the future.


Buns eats his pellets and hay very well, and loves all sorts of veggies. His favorites are apples, dandelion greens, broccoli, strawberries, and celery. Oddly, especially for a rabbit, he’s not a huge fan of carrots!


If interested in adopting, you will be asked to read our rabbit care packet, and fill out our rabbit adoption form.  No rabbits will go to their new homes without these things being done - no exceptions!


Because rabbits are illegal to own in Hammond (where the rescue is located), Buns is fostered in Munster, Indiana. Please note that if you live in Hammond, we are sorry, but you will be unable to adopt this rabbit. Also, please note, that when adopting, you may need to drive to Munster (next town over from Hammond), where the adoption will take place, or allow time for alternate arrangements to be set up.


The adoption fee for Buns is $35

Buns and his cage and accessories is $70


Pair of 1 & 1.5 Year Old American Male Guinea Pigs -- "Mr. Fluffy" & "Bubbles"

We have a pair of male guinea pigs looking for their forever home.  These guinea pigs are named Bubbles & Mr. Fluffy.  Bubbles & Mr. Fluffy came to the rescue together when their family could no longer care for them.  They are now ready to find a family of their own!

 

Bubbles is the white and cream American male guinea pig and Mr. Fluffy is the agouti and white American male guinea pig.  We have down that Mr. Fluffy was born in May 2017, making him 1.5 years old, and Bubbles was born in October 2017, making him 1 year old.  Great time to take them home!

 

These guinea pigs are very curious and friendly.  For the most part, they are your typical guinea pigs as far as being a little shy and skittish, but once you are holding them in your hands, the calm down immensely!  We’re sure you can also win them over with yummy hay or veggies!  Even without food, if you’re patient, they are curious and will eventually approach.  They love to come to the front of the cage when they think you might have something tasty for them!  Even without food… if you open the cage slowly, and move slowly, you may be able to reach in and pet them.  More likely Mr. Fluffy, as Bubbles is a little more shy and unsure, but sometimes you can reach in and pet both without them doing zoomies around their cage!  They just LOVE their hay and veggies, and haven’t yet met anything that they’re not crazy about eating.  Easy to please guinea pigs.  They are super sweet.  They do well with having their nails trimmed and love their igloo.  Neither of these guinea pigs have ever bitten anyone.

 

Bubbles & Mr. Fluffy are a pair of guinea pigs and can ONLY be adopted out together into their new home.  Please do not contact us and ask if you can only adopt one guinea pig – these two must go to their new home together.

 

These guinea pigs get along well with each other, but we make no guarantees as to whether they will get along with your guinea pig. 

 

The adoption fee for Bubbles & Mr. Fluffy is $40
