Could you use some guidance?
Most llama and alpaca owners, when they first acquired their animals, had someone to hold their hands as they learned how to care for, house, pasture, train, shear, medicate and enjoy their animals. Every camelid owner will confirm that the help they received at the beginning, the “mentoring”, was invaluable.
GALA has a group of volunteer members, all with great experience, who have agreed to connect with new camelid owners who might need some support.
Our MENTORS are ready to provide the following:
– Advice regarding housing, pasturing, nutrition and farm management.
– General guidance regarding innoculations and basic camelid care.
– Recommendations when veterinary advice is necessary.
– References to a wide variety of educational and training resources.
