Meet Clarence w/ Charlie - We're in Foster!

Guinea Pig
Location: Springfield
Gender: Male
What these guinea pigs' foster mom has to say about them:

Clarence and Charlie are a lovable pair of bonded male guinea pigs. Clarence may only have one eye, but that surely doesn't slow him down! Some of their favorite activities are eating veggies, exploring and relaxing outside in the grass in nice weather. Clarence and Charlie will let you know when it's snack time by their famous piggie "wheek" noises. They love to spend time with you outside of their cage and are great companions.

A word from these guinea pigs:
We are social creatures and if we're already paired up here at the shelter, we need to stay together. We need a spacious habitat equipped with hiding and napping spots, things to climb on, safe wood to chew, and guinea pig toys. Our diet should consist of grass hay available at all times, with a small amount of timothy pellets. We don't naturally make our own vitamin C, so we must get it daily from our diet. Snacks like red pepper, kale, mustard greens, dandelion greens, and other leafy greens will do the job nicely! In fact we love these snacks so much that we will call "wheet, wheeeeet" when we see you bringing us some! Our average lifespan is 5 to 7 years.
