Step 1: Interested adopters should read the following links first to prepare themselves for adopting a guinea pig:
General information about our care standards.
All about guinea pig care: http://www.guinealynx.info/healthycavy.html
Medical guide for guinea pig owners: http://www.guinealynx.info/emergency.html
Step 2: Fill out our application. Please answer all questions completely or your form cannot be reviewed. You must be 18 years of age to fill out our form.
Step 3: Decide which of the two cage options you would like to use:
Option 1: The C & C Cage is sturdy, easy to make, easy to clean and customizable.
• Instructions are available on www.guineapigcages.com, with information on cage options such as lids and lofts.
• Order your Whitmor Wire Storage Cubes “site to store” from http://www.walmart.com.
• Then call the sign stores in your area and find a good deal on coroplast.
Option 2: The Midwest Habitat is lightweight, collapsible, and the bottom is machine washable. They are not cat or dog-proof cages. The Midwest cage can be ordered complete from http://www.amazon.com
Step 4: An adoption coordinator will contact you to discuss which of our guinea pigs might be right for your home. When your cage is ready, an appointment is made with the foster home.
Step 5: Meet with the family who is fostering the guinea pigs you would like to adopt. Please bring a carrier to take your new guinea pigs home. You will be asked to sign an adoption agreement and acknowledgement of our return policies.
