FREDDIE - ID#A010048

My name is FREDDIE.

I am a female, tricolor and tan Guinea pig.

The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 3 months old.

I have been at the shelter since Apr 11, 2019.

This information was refreshed 5 hours ago and may not represent all of the animals at the Ames Animal Shelter.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Hello! My name is Freddie. My owner had to surrender me when they were not able to take care of me anymore. I am bonded with another guinea pig, and a rabbit. That's right, you read that right. I'm also bonded with a rabbit! This is NOT appropriate care in most situations. Rabbits and guinea pigs have very different dietary needs and rabbits can be too large for most guinea pigs. However, when staff tried to separate Brock the rabbit from me and my sister, he did poorly. When bunnies bond, they do it INTENSELY. Because of this, staff have made special arrangements for alll of us. Staff would be happy to explain to an adopter how to appropriately set up a kennel for these guys. They really are the cutest trio!
