Momma Megyn is looking for a loving guardian as are her four-week-old daughter pigs Yardley, Haley and Charlize – either all four together, or two and two!
These guinea pigs were born in a teenager’s bedroom without the mom even knowing she had a male and female … and this was the second litter for mommy. And, they still couldn’t tell the difference between males and females so Friends of Petraits also took in their relinquished dad and his other three daughters.
They all deserve a loving environment and wonderful care. Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited timothy and/or orchard hay (which is better for those with allergies), limited pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, red peppers for vitamin C, etc. Guinea pigs are one of the animals (like humans) who don’t manufacture their own vitamin C and require vitamin C treats or a slice of orange or red pepper. All four of these girls LOVE slices of oranges and peppers.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
They would love a home with people who will handle them daily, keep them well fed, and keep their habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in meeting and possibly adopting Momma Megyn and or any of her baby daughters Yardley, Haley or Charlize – in pairs, of course, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $30 each benefits the friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $50, we’ll include a starter kit of everything you need to care for them including food, cage, hay, litter, hidey hut and water bottle.
