VA-Craigslist-Richmond/Norfolk/ Fredericksburg

*If responding to an ad by an individual, meet in a public place
or go with a friend. Google the phone number of the poster to
ensure it matches the name he or she gives *

Mechanicsville (Richmond), VA
: Two male guinea pigs being rehomed due to son losing interest. Very sweet, used to being handled. Pics available by request. Come with cage, food, water bottle, extra cage, bedding, and other accessories.

Forest Hill Park (Richmond), VA
: Poster found a cage abandonded in Forest Hill Park with two guinea pigs inside and brought the pigs home. Only one pig survived, but thrived! and is now a healthy, happy and pudgy girl named Bunny. She does not get enough attention in her present home, and so the poster has decided to rehome her. Here's the catch, they're not sure whether Bunny is actually a girl. And since Bunny was housed with another pig, she may actually be pregnant. Ooch! You know the links: PREGNANCY WATCH Boy or Girl?

Virginia Beach (Norfolk), VA
: Three males and four females being rehomed due to allergies. Come with cages (too small, try Cheaper, Better Cages). Adopt them in same sex pairs, as they get along well with each other. Oldest is 1.5 years old. If anyone has info that this may be a br33der listing, please let me know and I will promptly remove it.

Fredericksburg (NoVA)
: Franklin is a male guinea pig, less than one year old, being rehomed because his family found two guinea pigs to be too much work (as compared to one). I have actually found the opposite to be true. Guinea pigs also are incredibly social creatures, and really rely on having a friend. Here's a great link for more info: Guinea Pigs need a friend! Social Interaction. He comes with his cage (too small, try Cheaper, Better Cages), food dish and water bottle.

Kempsville (Norfolk), VA: Two 5 m.o. female guinea pigs being rehomed due to allergies. Lovable and playful, bonded and so must be adopted together. One is a longhair, the other looks like she might be a texel mix? A rather high adoption fee (poster is attempting to recoup costs) includes accessories. Still, don't forget the essential: Cheaper, Better Cage

* AAGP recommends quarantining any new guinea pigs
for 2-3 weeks and confirming the sex yourself.
Many sad accidents or "accidents" can be avoided this way. *
