Pets in need of homes
Tan and Jonathan — Petraits Rescue
today at 7:35 am
Tan and Jonathan are fun and friendly, seven-month-old, male guinea pig brothers looking for a loving guardian together.
The boys get along well and jump for joy (adorable) and make wonderful wheeks and whistle sounds.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited timothy and orchard hays – in fact, hay should be the majority of their diet. They can have limited pellets, and a variety of fresh vegetables daily including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, carrots, and a little bit of fruit as a treat: oranges, apples, etc.
Guinea pigs like humans need a source of vitamin C in their diet which they can get from a one-inch square piece of sweet red pepper, kale, chard and other greens, or you can use vitamin C treats made for guinea pigs.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
Most cages marketed for guinea pigs are way too small. Guinea pigs need appropriate room to roam and separate spaces for a nest, bathroom area and food and water. No animal is meant to live in a cage all the time, so make sure to provide your pig with proper exercise outside of a cage with a romp around the home or exercise pen.
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 Jonathan and Tan, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/ and follow up by contacting [email protected] to set up an appointment to meet them.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee as a pair of $75 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a starter kit of absolutely everything you need to care for them including pellets, large cage, hay, hidey huts and water bottle.
