    Hi, we are moving to Europe, good job there, and my renewable energy stuff is in demand over there.

    Our nine year old daughter has two young guinea pigs, 6 mths old, both male, and she wants to give them to a good home.

    I do not want to follow suggestions we got from people like: “We say we take them, and once you left we give them to the pet shop”.

    I take my daughter serious and I am not able to do that cheating.

    So we need to find a new home for the guinea pigs where they really have it good, and also our daughter would like to visit them when we come to Australia once a year.

    If anybody would like to take them, or knows of people interested please let me know, or send me an SMS to 0469 666 844

    We would leave next week, however, as long as we don’t know where the guinea pigs go I can’t buy tickets.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Hi Dan. Best of luck with finding a good home for the guinea pigs. It might help if you say approx. where you are living right now.

    Yes you are right, we live near Sydney and would deliver guinea pigs and cage if it is up to a few hours drive.

    Have you looked up guinea pig shelters around your area?

    Thanks, that was very helpful. There is such a shelter not too far from here, and I will get in contact with them tomorrow.

    Cheers

    I’m glad! I’m not in Sydney but I know there are quite a few little guinea pig shelters around Australia. Good luck! It’s awesome that you’re finding good new homes for them.
