Meet Vanilla

Vanilla is an adorable and sweet, eight-month-old, tri-color American male guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.

Vanilla lost his home when his family moved to a no-pets apartment. He is currently living alone but loves chatting with the other pigs through the bars of his habitat. He even climbs happily on top of his hidey hut for a great view.

Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful of guinea pig pellets, and fresh vegetables including 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 bell 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, his nails trimmed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.

If you’re interested in possibly adopting Vanilla, please fill out an adoption application at and follow up by e-mailing to make an appointment to meet him.

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, treats, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
