Meet Tru

Tru is a very handsome and healthy, two-year-old, tri-color American crowned guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.

Tru was relinquished to Friends of Petraits Rescue from a family where he lived with ten other males. He has been neutered to help him find a friend – either male or female! But, he can also live as the one and only guinea pig, or in a habitat next to another guinea pig.

Tru loves to be hand fed, and eats unlimited timothy, orchard and botanical hays, a cup of fresh salad each day including cilantro, green and red leaf lettuce, parsley, and only a ¼ cup of guinea pig pellets. Guinea pigs need daily vitamin C from fresh pellets, a 1-inch square of red pepper, or some of their dark leafy greens.

Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent website

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

If you’re interested in meeting and possibly adopting Tru, please fill out the adoption application at and follow up to make an appointment by contacting

His adoption fee of $75 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue Group. For an additional $50, you can purchase his 2 foot by 4 foot Midwest guinea pig habitat and a starter kit of all the supplies you’ll need to care for him.

Tru is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
