Fosters are mostly experienced guinea pig owners that know what it takes to properly socialize guinea pigs. We can have fosters which do not have as much experience as we do train.
A typical period for fostering either a single, or a pair, of guinea pigs is 1-2 months A two-hour foster orientation meeting is required to make sure all foster families are up-to-date on medical care and guinea pig needs. Fosters are required to attend foster training calls 2-3 times a month and to bring their piggies to us for nail trims/health checks.
On our end, we will give foster families the habitats (cage, bowl, water bottle) and fleece liners that they require. Pellets and hay will also be provided on a weekly basis. Fosters will only have to provide daily vegetables , daily cage cleaning and handling
