Meet Rascal

Rascal is an adorable six-month-old, tri-color crested male guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.

When Rascal came to Friends of Petraits Rescue, he had been living in the same cage as a female guinea pig. We’re not sure yet, but she’s possibly pregnant. He certainly enjoys the companionship of another guinea pig. And, loves talking to the other guinea pigs through the bars of his cage.

Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful of guinea pig pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, etc. Guinea pigs, just like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with a one-inch square of red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods. He enjoys his fresh foods and looks forward to his daily salads.

He would love a home with people who will handle him daily, keep him well fed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.

If you’re interested in possibly adopting Rascal, please fill out an adoption application at

He is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

His adoption fee of $60 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for him including a large cage, litter, pellets, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
