Cavy Central has a number of foster carers that help when we have large rescues that come in. If you would like to help with the foster caring of guinea pigs, please complete the details below. Please understand that these guinea pigs are not to have any contact with your own animals. They need to be housed separately and that at different times will need to be brought back to the shelter. Animals need to be in foster care for a number of reasons extending from high numbers, through to pregnancy or recovery of illnesses or injuries. Fostercaring is an enjoyable way to experience more with these small animals and know that you are helping them on their journey to find a forever home.
