At this time we are not accepting private surrenders. Please find other avenues to rehome your family members, if that is the last resort. There are sites such as Guinea Pig Zone and Guinea Lynx that you can list your pigs on. Please charge a substantial adoption fee to weed out those not serious and research questions asked by rescues, come up with your own list to make sure your pets are getting the best possible home you can find for them.
Guinea pigs, like all other animals, are a life to be valued. The home you give should be it's forever home. These are not toys to be discarded when the children outgrow them. Instead, take this opportunity to teach the kids the value of responsibility and follow through. As parents it is our job to teach this lesson to our children. You don't rehome your kids when they become "inconvenient." Why should you rehome your animals?
When downsizing, you make sure you have room for all of your family members in the new home. Please make sure you have room for the furry family members too.
Please do the research on how much time, effort and space these animals take. They are not easy "starter pets" as many seem to think.
Adoption fees are:
$35 for a single guinea pig (to a waiting cage mate only.
$50 for a pair (more if neutered male is part of the pair)
$75 for neutered male
Cage must be approved before adoption can take place. See www.guineapigcages.com for size requirements.
Please provide picture with application.
Atlanta Metro Guinea Pig Rescue is dedicated to the health and welfare of guinea pigs and to educating the people who care for them.
We are a small rescue, founded in 2008, with no more than 4-5 guinea pigs at a time in house and a couple of foster homes equipped to take up to 4 each. Most times we are full and can not accept more.
We are a network of foster homes, not a facility. Therefore, applications must be approved before appointments are made to meet pigs. Please find the application on our website, www.amgpr.org.
