A little about you…
I am a foster parent and get all the 'lively' piggies for handling. I also make grass pens for the shelter to sell and use on open days. I have adopted five piggies of my own.
How did you become a piggy volunteer and foster parent?
My daughter wanted a cat and I said no. So we settled on guinea pigs. My wife became involved with another shelter and roped me in to help as well. It is a nice family thing we do together.
Most memorable piggie moment?
Bringing a piggy back from illness and depression. I thought he was going to die. I ended up adopting him because he found a place in my heart.
What is something people may not know about guinea pigs?
They all have different personalities which will come out once you earn their trust.
