Hi all. I'm sorry to announce that I have to adopt out my 4 girls :(. I'm hoping to find someone already in the Toronto area or willing to commute to Brampton that will give my girls a great home. Squirt and her 3 daughters are healthy friendly girls that are a little over 2 years old (daughters birthday is August 20th 2005, and the mothers birthday is unknown but approx. 7 months older). The history of their suprise birth can be found in posts by me somewhere here on PT.

We're only asking $50 and I will only let them go to someone who promises that they will keep the girls on their current base diet (vet recommended after the death of their father :down:) and a promise to keep in touch for at least the first few weeks. Their current base diet is Oxbow Cavy Cuisine and Oxbow Western Timothy Hay which can be purchased and picked up or mailed from Flower Town Chinchillas in Brampton. I will provide the new owner with a list of suitable treats and veggies if they don't already know how to care for degus, and also a list of how to tell the 4 girls apart.

The girls will come with their complete cage and accessories pictured below. (Water Bottle, 4 Food Dishes, 2 Wheels, a few Houses/hideouts, Litter pan) and of course the remainder of their bag of food. Enjoy the pics and please get back to me at [email protected] as soon as possible if you are interested. I love my baby girls very much :rubcry: and it's very very hard for me to have give them up so please someone who i can trust will give them the great life they deserve contact me. :(

awww that's so sad! :( I really wish I lived closer, I am looking for degus and would love to adopt yours, but being located lower New York, I really truley don't think it's possible. SORRY. I hope you find really good homes for them!! They look sooo adorable! I wish I could help!
P.S. Why do you have to give them up--it's ok if it's personal, I was just wondering. I really do hope you find a good home, best of luck.

Oh, I'm sorry you have to give them up :(.

I really, really wish I could take them. I'm in New York so I don't think it's possible, though :(.

Best of luck :hugg2:.

Thanks for the support girls :( . Unfortunatly with the job cuts from Chrysler my hubby will most likely be layed off soon and for a while so we have to move into a smaller apartment and plan for the worst.

I recently moved to Canada from the US and I'm still going through the immigration/citizenship process so I can't work full-time yet (hopefully soon!!) so things will get rough :( . With the small apartment we won't have room for all of our pets so I have to sacrifice my bond with the babies for their own good.

With the tight budgeting I'm afraid I won't be able to spoil my pets like they're used to (i'm already starting to notice little things they need replaced and toys they're missing out on), and I know someone out there will have the means to give them what they deserve. My girls are tough and they have each other and their mom to watch over them so I hope they'll be ok with the move :confused:.

Thank you again for your support.. :(

So sorry you have to adopt out your girls. I can't even imagine how hard that must be for you!!

I live in southern Indiana. I would be 100% willing to take your little angels if there is anyway we could get the distance covered. Maybe with transport help or something?

I don't know if it's possible to get the distance covered. At any rate I really, really hope your girls will get the wonderful home they deserve!! (If there's no way I can get them to me.)

I'm not sure if transportation would be possible :confused: especially over the canada/us border? Thank you for your consideration though, it means a lot to me. I just hope I can find someone close to willing to adopt them before trying to ship them :(.

I just thought of something. How close to you live to the boarder? My aunt lives in Lancing, Michigan, and she would probably be more than willing to drive to pick them up. I don't know if you have to do a qurantine or anything, but you just went up there, so you would know. And my aunt and her husband have buig enough vehicles to put the cage in. I thought of that and thought that might work out, I would really love to adopt your girls.

petluvr01 - Thank you for your consideration, but i do believe exotic animals crossing the border have to go into quarantine. I don't mean this personally of course, but I don't want my girls to have such a long commute or go through quarantine :(. I'm really hoping to find someone within an hour or so away. Unfortunately I live 4 hours drive away from any border. Thank you so much for being willing to take my girls though, I just wish you lived near Toronto...

I can totally understand that too. Just the idea of those little dearies sitting in quarantine is enough to break my heart!

But I sure do wish they could come right across the border to us!!!

I really hope you can find a good home for them!

I was just wondering if the four girls are still up for adoption? I would still like to adopt them and give them a good home. I'm so sorry that you have to give them away in the first place.:(
