Hi my name is Barb and I am the Director of Wonderland Rabbit Rescue, 15 min. South of Detroit. While you will see items signed by
me and my volunteer Aleks who turned me onto this forum, I am the newbie and she is the experienced GP owner. The Rescue
has taken in 4 GPs recently, 2 boys and 2 girls. We are trying to rehome the two girls. I am very experienced on what I need to do to
rehome rabbits, but is there anything specific I should look for when rehoming GPs? We do home visits as the final "drop off" with
the pigs. (One of the boys is still under medical care for a neurological issue and we are not sure we want to fully separate him
from his roommate quite yet). Thanks in advance and hello its nice to meet everyone!!! Barb

Hi!!!! Thanks for all your help and welcome. When you do the home visit, I'd just be sure that you require a large enough C&C cage. Boys tend to need a bit more space than females. I'm sure Aleks has told you all this though! I would also make sure that your adopters have an experienced exotics vet lined up, as guinea pigs go down hill pretty quickly.

Welcome to the forum. I like the way your rescue does a home visit as the final drop-off. I'm only speaking for myself but I wouldn't have any problem with a rescue coming to my home to see where the pigs were going to be living. Of course, adopting pigs from any other source, such as craigslist, would be a different story.
