Hi everyone, my name is Creek

Hi There! My name is Creek and I am looking for a new forever home.

I was bought into Lort Smith all alone with puncture wounds which have since healed. I may look a little scruffy, where my hair is growing back, but I would say I’m a rugged kind of handsome!

I absolutely love my food, doesn’t matter if pellets, hay or veggies, I love it all. And you bet I’ll be demanding more once I’ve finished my plate!

I love to have a chat, so I’m a vocal little guy, but I have not had much interaction with other Guinea Pigs. We are a very social animal, so another Guinea Pig friend would be best, but we would need to take things slowly to ensure we both got along.

I’m still a little unsure of being handled, so a home where someone can commit to teaching me that humans are not so scary would be amazing.

If you think you may have the home for me, please fill in an expression of interest form!

Adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
