Does having a female and male in cages right by each other (seperated obviously) do the same for them as having a cage mate?

It would be torture for an unaltered male to be placed directly next to a female. Why don't you have him neutered and have them live together?

Never thought of it getting his hormones going. I do not have a male but my female is alone and all I can find is males, so I was just curious if that would help the loneliness. I will keep looking for a female.

Just thought it would atleast give her someone to talk to.

On average how much is neutering a boar?

It depends on your location and your vet. It can range from anywhere from $80 to $200 dollars from where I live.

I paid $125 in the Chicago suburbs to get my male neutered. That included the meds and follow ups. Find out if the rescues near you have any neutered males.

I can't find any rescues near me. I tried petfinder and it keeps listing places in Illinois and st Louis (I'm in Kansas city Missouri) so I've been looking on Craigslist. I tried calling the local animal shelter all day today and they wouldn't answer the phone so I left a message.
