If you'd like an entry of yours removed then e-mail me with which listing it is and I'll remove it for you.

Lewistown, Pa
Novembver 19th, 2008.

Has 1 mom and 2 daughters with large cage. They get along very nicely.
Also available are 2 male siblings.

Pittsburgh PA
Date Posted: November 2nd, 2009

Has three degus that someone left on their front porch. Unfortunatly, they cannot care for them. They don't know if the degus are male, female or a combination. They ARE adult-sized, though. 2 are missing their tails ends. While they're nowhere near as friendly as theirs were, they have no idea what situation the degus were in before they got there.
They get along well together, but will sometimes fight over the water bottle.

They will need nearly everything...cage, etc. They have a big old wheel, but it has bars and isn't safe for tailed critters. Could be modified to work. They will come with whatever food, dust, hay, etc that is still here; plus the water bottle and wheel.
No rehoming fee.

Needs to find homes for five female degus and three male degus. They are all ages 3-7. Most are incredibly friendly and docile, and were raised by hand, not purchased in a pet store. Adores them all but no longer has the time to give them the attention they deserve and would like to find them loving homes.

Anyone interested doesn’t need to take all of them, however she’d prefer not to give them away in pairs any smaller than two as they did grow up together and most of them are family. If you take all three males, or all five ladies she will provide a very nice cage to go with them for free. If someone is interested in specific ones here’s some quick descriptions to help.


-age seven, very active and has had several litters of pups.
-age seven, a little shy and small, has also had several litters.
-age five, really lazy and friendly, likes to be picked up
-age six, incredibly friendly and docile, will let anyone pick her up to be petted. Had glaucoma when she was younger and lost one eye. Tilts her head slightly to the left constantly because of an ear infection when she was young.
-age three, very fast, active, with a long tail, does not really like being picked up, has never had any litters


-age four, very skinny with only about a quarter of a tail.
-age four, very big & healthy but has no tail.
-age five, very friendly, has a small crook in the end of his tail that he was born with

Has a degu that is in need of a new home. He will come with a cage if needed, along with 1 full bag of food, a partial bag of food, toys, running wheel, wooden house, food dish, waterbottle, a ball for the floor, and a barely used bag of carefresh bedding. Basically everything you need for him for the next few months will come with him excet for hay.
Is looking for serious pet owners that will take good care of him. It would be prefered, but not necesary, for him to have a companion. He is about 3 years old. He lived with his brother until about a year ago, and then he was able to intereact with females for a short while. He has been alone for about 6 months and has handeled it just fine, as long as you give him attention. Overall he is very friendly and loves to be pet.
Is looking for a small donation fee of $20 to help cover the cost of all the stuff he comes with.

Has 2 male degus (brothers) approximately 2 years old. They are the sweetest little guys, however, she has developed an allergy to them and can no longer keep them in her house. She would be willing to donate their large cage (almost 3 feet high) as well as any additional food and bedding along with them - whatever it takes to find them a loving home. Would be willing to drive them to you or maybe even meet in the middle. They get along great with each other and love to play.

Has two male degus (brothers) that have begun to fight and needs to find separate homes for them. They've been having serious fights over the last couple of months that have gotten worse.
They like being with each other and cry when they are separate but one has lost a finger, the other a piece of his ear, and both had patches of fur missing. It's grown back in since then, but it was still a horrible thing to come home to.
Has one cage that can go with them or whoever is last.

Has 3 female and 2 male degu pups for adoption. They are 4 months old and are in good health. These little guys are really sweet and friendly. They've handled and hand-fed them from birth. They're very social, so need to be adopted in pairs (or more). Pick up is preferred, but they're willing to meet half-way or deliver, within reason. They're asking for a small adoption fee.

Has three degus in need of a home or homes. 1 male and 2 female. They all live in the same cage, therefore if sold separately they would not come with a cage or any supplies. Females are not pregnant. If sold together they would come with everything. The male is approx. 1 years old and the females are approx 2-3 years old. They are all in good health. Would like to sell for $15/piece or $40 for all. Would prefer to sell them to someone local. Could meet half way if within reason.

McKinney, TX

Currently has six degus (family group) that need to be rehomed.
They are currently living in her classroom in two separate cages (3 females, 3 males).
Since they are a family unit she doesn't let them breed.
Momma and Poppa are approximately 4 - 5 years of age. The two daughters are 3 yrs of age and the two sons will be 3 yrs old in August. They are all currently in good health.
Two have developed cataracts (Poppa and a son) but otherwise have bright orange teeth and are fairly lean and don't seem to have slowed down.
If anyone is willing to take all 3 of the same sex, she will throw in their cage, toys and some food to get started for $30. She cannot ship, but am willing to drive halfway within reason.

Is currently a breeder, but is getting out of the degu breeding field.
Has 4 males, 9 females, 6 babies (didn't realize a female was pregnant)

There are the "original 4" (none related to each other) who are parents to the remainder.Siblings have NOT been bred together bc of health issues. Would like to find someone to take them all.
Currently has the males and females separated.
Will let the 2 cages (but not the part that the cage sits on. That was originally built for my bird, not the degu.), litter, food, whatever they have that is degu related go with whoever is willing to adopt them.
Is asking for an adoption fee of $250, for the whole "shebang".

Has included some pictures of them.
The first one, The second one, The third one, The forth one, The fifth one, The sixth one, The seventh one, The eighth one, The ninth one, The tenth one.

Has 2 cages that go with them. One cage is a 2 level cage, and the other is just a larger bird cage with "branches" (they are the type of chew proof branches you put in bird cages).
Has almost a half bag of pine bedding (it is a 2.0 cubic feet bag), some food, hay, etc..
They are all human safe (ie:they don't bite and are used to being handled). I am not sure on pricing for the whole lot of them. I was selling them in pairs for $35. I have food dishes, water bowls/bottles. I really wish I could keep them as I love them so, it is just too hard right now. I would rather sell them all together (as that would be easiest). Thank you Chris!

3 male degus in need of a new home (preferably with someone with knowledge on degus). They are kept in separate cages after a freak behavior change in them. They were once loving brothers now turned into warring brothers!
Bedding, food, and cages will go with them. Is unable to keep them due to her daughter developing allergies. It is unknown how old they are.
They are kind of spoiled. They will only eat peanuts, honey-wheat sticks (bad!) and other flavored foods but will NOT eat regular pellets! Skittish about being hand held but TLC will do tame them a little bit more. Pick up only.

Has a pair of male degus that they purchased in August of 2006 when they were tiny. They have since moved them into a very big expensive cage (48" high by 18 " deep by 24" wide) and they have lots of toys and some wheels.
Their daughter who is ten has lost interest in them and they feel very badly for them and would like a nice home for them.
They have almost $200 dollars invested in the cage, degus, and accessories and would be willing to let them go for less than half of that to a very good home who has time and love for them. They do get handled a few times a week and with proper attention could be great little companions for the right owner.

Has a male degu rescued from the pound: the original owner surrendered him because she wasn't able to give him enough attention, and she has the same problem. He's lonely and needs another degu and people with the time to play with him. While he does not appreciate her handling him, he has never bitten her and she believe he will tame nicely with enough attention. He likes cats: theirs drool over him... Not a good setup.

Alison Archer

Date Posted: March 27th, 2006

Has many babies in her house. One of her girls had 9 and two weeks later the other had 8. They were born February 12th, and February 26th. In the older litter she has 5 boys and 3 girls available for sale. She is keeping one of the baby girls. She has not had a chance to sex the other litter yet.

The older litter is now 5 weeks old, so they will be ready for new homes no earlier than the 9th of April, and the younger litter no sooner than the 23rd of April (that will make both litters 8 weeks old before they leave home, most pet stores won't take them until they are 12 weeks of age).

She would like to sell them to make sure they are going to good homes ($5.00 a piece). She would prefer to sell them in pairs or trio's unless there is already a degu in the house for company. Since they are siblings (both litters have the same father) they are not breedable with each other.

Is in need of a home for a degu named dingo that they are unable to devote the time needed to. He is very loving and very,very friendly.
He was wild for a bit but was rescued. He only has three legs and half a tail as they think something must have attacked him when he was wild.
He will need a complete new cage as the one he is in is no good.
He would make good companionship to someone who wants him. They would love for him to go to a caring loving family.

The degus are well mannered and only one male bit their son once when he was in a stressed situation anyway. The babies are all handled daily. They are five weeks and ready to be weaned. They will only go to a well knowledgeable degu loving home. The cage is three by three feet with three levels. Has an extra cage for the males.

Has 2 female degus, estimated to be a little over a year old that need a home that will spend time with them. Both have short tails, one got "degloved" when she escaped and injured when she was caught. The other chewed her tail down after the first was injured. They are named Merlin and Donner.

Because they haven't been paid much attention to, they have started biting. Prefers they to go to an experienced degu person who will know how to curb this bad habit and appreciate them for the unique and comical critters that they are. They chitter and are not afraid of anyone, they just don't like to be held.
