Jack and Jill — Petraits Rescue
today at 9:12 am
Jack and Jill are a two to three-year-old, tri-color brother and sister guinea pigs looking for a loving guardian together.
Jack is a crowned or crested neutered male; and Jill is a smooth coated intact female. These two get along famously and will play tug-of-war over pieces of Romaine lettuce.
Jack is the braver, bolder and more sociable of the two-some. Jill is sweet to hold and pet, but will run away and hide, at first.
Guinea pigs are happiest in pairs, and Jack was neutered so he can stay with his sister who he adores.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays. They are currently eating a small amount of guinea pig pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, 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 red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
This gorgeous pair 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 Jack and Jill, please contact email@example.com for a guinea pig adoption application.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $80 as a pair benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $120, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a huge and well-thought out habitat, pellets, hay, litter, and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
