    Thinking about adopting....

    I'm thinking about adopting this mother/daughter pair which are in a local rescue. Apparently the mother was given up to animal services where she gave birth to the daughter. They were then rescued by a rescue organization. I have two boys so these will have to have a separate cage. They are gorgeous! their names are Zuri and Rain.

    Wow, they are gorgeous. I say, if you can afford the extra costs and have time, go for it! If you need time to make the cage or get supplies, email the shelter and tell them you are thinking about adopting them. Let us know your final decision

    Are these your first guinea pigs? Do you have any currently, or have you had any in the past?

    Re: Thinking about adopting....

    I just emailed the rescue and told them I could get Zuri and Rain on the 9th if approved. I need to get paid and make the cage first...so itll take me a week and a half to be ready for them. So excited though!!! I started this process 2 weeks ago and they are just now responding to my application, so I think a week and a half will be ok. They move kind of slow on the whole process because the rescue is run by volunteers who do this in their spare time.
