Several of our baby guinea piggies are getting ready to leave mom and us here and would like to meet you and hopefully go home with you!

Guinea pigs are very social animals, they like to play with each other, talk, whisper little piggy secrets, groom and care, eat their food in company.....: so, if you do not have a little piggy at home already, it is highly advised, to adopt more then just one solo little guy! You and your little furry squeaky friends will be very happy and thankful, nobody likes to be alone, right?! They also love to socialize with a bunny, if you already have one......!
Little boys and little girls are available, in different colors and coat styles.
They are now 5 weeks of age, fully weaned, eat LOTS of fresh veggies, greens, fruits - from Nature, garden and your kitchen -, of course different hays and regular pellets. Water bottle or bowl work very well, I add a bit of lemon/lime juice or apple cider vinegar to it, to up the vitamin C and keep it fresh and tasty!
Our little pigs can be housed indoors in a regular cage or most of the year in a hutch outdoors and enjoy out of the cage time and also fresh grazing outdoors, if at all and safely possible!
They are very sweet and easy going, playful, funny, energetic and love to be held, petted, carried around and all the other good things!
No biting or nipping or scratching, just bundles of soft, warmth, joy, kisses and love!
We don't have a firm amount for our little ones.
INSTEAD we would like to ask for a donation for projects dear to our family's heart.
As in the past (and future as well), the money we receive for our little guys will be matched by our family and then donated in support of two orphanages run by "Casa Verde" in Peru, where my husband is from. One is located in Arequipa, the beautiful "White City" at the foot of the Misti volcano, home to 42 children. The other, newer one, can be found close to Cusco, the 'Ancient Capital of the Incas of long ago'. 22 children are cared for there. Our daughters Sanja and Keira as well as nieces Hannah and Nina spend many month over the last 6 years down there volunteering, helping, learning...., and could experience first hand the great need, but also how far a little bit can go and especially how much any help is appreciated and put to very good use!
In addition to the orphanages we support three little Schools: the first is located in Andahuaylillas in the Peruvian Andes. You can find information about that project under "Projecto Q'ewar", an organization of moms crafting beautiful Waldorf-style dolls and animals to support their children's education.
The second School is called "Kusi Kawsay", located in Pisac, a magical and ancient village/city 40 minutes away from Cusco at the real entrance to the Sacred Valley.
"Escuela Caracol" is our third little school, the first and only little Waldorf School in Guatemala. With lots of help 100+ kids, of whom most are of mayan decent, are able to get an education as well as two good, warm meals each day!
Please decide and discuss with your family what you are able and willing to give, every ones situation and moment in life is different and that's why we prefer to do it that way!
ALL is so needed, ALL is very much appreciated, ALL will be matched in full by our family and ALL will be put to very good use!
We hope you like our little ones (and causes!) as much as we do!
Enjoy this very beautiful and colorful Autumn!!!!
And yes: guinea piggies 'brown gold' is GREAT for your garden!!!!
It does not burn hot and so can be put to good use directly and right away!
If you think those little ones are just what you are looking for, we are very happy to hear from you!
We are flexible on times and days, weekends or during the week, and, if you live on the other side of the sound: a ferry ride to Seattle can always be arranged! We also on and off visit our son studying at OHSU in Portland and then can easily give a bunny a ride your way!
Thanks and Cheers,
Erika and Family!
