Truckee-Tahoe Pet(s) of the Week: 3 little pigs

Submitted to the Tribune
Three little guinea pigs are up for adoption, Carl, Slash and Puff.

We’ve all heard the fable, The Three Little Pigs. Well, meet Carl, Slash, and Puff. They’ve been desperately searching for the right home and just haven’t found the perfect fit.

They were first found outside under some brush, definitely not the right home for these three little piggies. Now they are at HSTT’s shelter and while it’s a nice place to stay, it’s not the perfect, forever home that these three have been searching for. So they are now in search of home number three, the perfect fit.

Now honestly, what’s better than a cute, cuddly, piggy party? Nothing really. Talk about some fun little party animals that will liven up your home. They love to play, are ok with being held, and absolutely love to munch on treats and goodies like salad, kale, apples, and carrot tops.

Most guinea pigs don’t like living by themselves and these little furballs are no different. They love and crave companionship, so these three need to be adopted together. These young boys are about one year of age and full of spunk and spirit.

They come with their own large enclosure that they really seem to have taken to. And because guinea pigs need certain food and animal care, our adoption specialists can give you all of that information before adoption so you’re ready to give these three the most perfect, piggy palace.

If you are looking to add some fun to your life, but are looking for furry companionship other than a cat or dog, Carl, Slash, and Puff might be the perfect fit.
