We have a very long back log of approved adopters due to COVID-19. It is highly unlikely that any new applicants would be invited to a meet before October. We will only allow one family member to enter the meet home and that person must wear a mask. We will not be making any exceptions to this policy.

Any of the guinea pigs currently on our site likely will not be available when new applicants receive an invitation in October or so but we will have other guinea pigs to choose from at that time.
