Meet Hera

All about Hera

Hera is a 3 months old female Guinea Pig small&furry and has been with us for 114 days.

Wheek wheek from Hera! This cutie is an almost 2 month old female American Smooth guinea pig looking to go home with her mom Sabine. They are still getting used to gentle handling, so being slow and patient with them will be key in building a relationship with them. They love munching on greens, and climbing on top of their hidey houses!

Guinea Pigs have a vegan diet that consists mainly of high quality Timothy Hay, supplemented with 1/8 cup of hay-based pellets per day. Guinea Pigs also need 1 cup of fresh veggies every day, including things like romaine, green & red leaf lettuce, escarole, parsley, dill, and bell peppers. They also need additional Vitamin C supplements because they do not create their own-just like us!

Guinea Pigs are social animals and should be kept with or near at least one other guinea pig of the same sex. They should be kept in a solid base cage, with a minimum size of 7.5 square feet-approximately 2ft x 4ft, with room for food, water, enrichment, and places to hide.

Our shelter is open every day from 12-4, closed on Mondays. If you are interested in this pet, please call us at 978-452-7781, email info@lowellhumanesociety.org, or stop by the shelter to request an adoption application.
