Pets of the week: July 22, 2012



Omar is a speedy little boy but once you catch him he loves to snuggle and be petted. Did you know you can clicker train guinea pigs? Guinea pigs need a clean cage, healthy food and daily play time. These docile creatures rarely bite and are known for squeaking with delight when their favorite humans enter a room.


Niko is a sweet young guinea pig who loves a covered dome to sleep in. Niko enjoys his timothy hay and guinea pig pellets but loves his daily dose of fruits and vegetables. Niko likes being with his buddy Omar but would do fine in a home by himself. Guinea pigs are excellent starter pets for older children who have mastered proper handling techniques.


This declawed beauty is a little timid and shy. Gracie enjoys warm laps to lie upon and window ledges to observe the world from. Gracie’s timid manor requires a quiet home with a patient family. This little lady would prefer a home without children or other pets.


Keku is a vivacious girl who is quickly learning her basic commands with the help of clicker training. Keku is a nice young lady who enjoys long walks and cuddle time. This spunky little girl is going to need regular grooming.
