Lester is an adorable, two-year-old, male tri-color guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.
Lester came to Friends of Petraits Rescue as an only guinea pig, but he may enjoy the companionship of another guinea pig.
He enjoys chatting with the other guinea pigs at the rescue through the bars.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful 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.
He’s obviously been raised on only hay and pellets because he doesn’t gobble his fresh foods like the other pigs. He’ll take a bite out of a carrot, apple or leaf of romaine lettuce, so he’s up for taste-testing!
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
He would love a home with people who will handle him daily, keep him well fed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Lester, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/.
He is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
His adoption fee of $60 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for him including a large cage, litter, pellets, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
