Life is colorful when shared with my sister.

Madge & Mavis
Calliope & Harlow
Update 2: Calliope & Harlow were adopted on October 15th!

Update: Madge & Mavis were adopted on October 14th!

The Sweetheart Sisters are four guinea pigs who needed us when their previous owners welcomed a human baby in the home and decided these girls were no longer welcome.

We paired them based on their strongest bonds -- Madge & Mavis and Calliope & Harlow -- because guinea pigs are very social animals and generally do best with the lifelong companionship of their own kind.

The Sweetheart Sisters are approximately 18 months young and they debut for adoption today in pairs at Nevada SPCA.  Please ask for them by name in our new Lovebugs Room, where we showcase rescued rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, and other small animals.

All four are gentle, lovely girls who show great enthusiasm when we bring them their daily salads of veggies and greens.  Harlow is the most outgoing, while the other three are quite shy and need a quiet, experienced home.
