Hello,

I have an absolutely wonderful male guinea pig. His brother recently ran into the woods during playtime (we've had an extensive search and have been unable to find him) and he is devastated. Wanted to see if anyone who currently has a fun, loving home for guineas is available to take him in. He loves to play with other guineas, is very sweet to humans, loves being held and being in a great home. Will only consider those who already have guineas - do not believe in keeping them in solitary confinement. He is adorable - half white and grey. Not sure age - got him relatively recently. Believe he is on the younger side given his shyness and size.

Alternatively, if anyone has a lone guinea they are looking to pair, please share info.

Thank you!

How recently did his brother escape? Have you thought of setting a trap? There have been several successful recoveries of escaped guinea pigs.

Thanks for the response. That was researched, but given we live in an area right next to woods, we have so much wildlife (bunnies, beaver looking animals that are like 5x larger than guineas, deer, etc), figured it may 1) trap others and 2) perhaps cause our guy to be stuck and put in compromising position. Do you know of any traps that would prevent this? It has been emotionally exhausting and time consuming searching for him - there’s seemingly infinite places he could be.

Very much appreciate your help.

I can't remember who was on the thread, but someone in Seattle (I think) lost a pig in an overgrown lot next door, and couldn't find it. She posted on here, and several other places, but nobody had seen it. About a month later, someone in one of the Scandinavian countries saw a post about a woman out walking who heard a guinea pig, and was able to catch it. It turned out to be the same pig -- survived all by itself in the city for a month. Maybe you and your pig will be so lucky.
