We are currentl;y full, plum full and have plenty of guinea pigs in need of homes. If you think you fit the description of a cavy owner then by all means send us an email, fill out the application and you can also enjoy the fun filled days of cavy ownership.
If you are considering adopting a guinea pig for your child take in consideration the time that will have to be put into them for their care. These are not great first time pets, as many parents think. There is cage cleaning, daily water bottle fills, pellets to be given, and daily veggies. Then the floor time or snuggle time, you and your child will have to spend large amounts of time with them, as guinea pigs are social creatures (at least an hour a day). There have been way to many owner relinquishments as of late for me to comfortable with. You need to think this over before you impulsively go out and adopt anything. Read all you can, learn all you can, email me... I will try to help anyway I can to ready you, IF you are committed to the life of the animal.
Cage consideration is very important as they need a lot of room, they also need to be in a room you frequent often. I reccommend a cage type as it is cheaper to make than buying a teeny tiny store bought cage.

Please think about this before contacting me, as it is hard on the pig/pigs to be homed and then returned and rehomed time and time again....
We will not allow children (under 18) to adopt our guinea pigs, if you are interested please have a parent/guardian contact us.
Guinea Pigs are $25 for a single adoption or $35 for a same sex/altered pair.
An application must be filled out prior to being approved for adoption. Please email us for more information and/or a copy of our adoption application and a contract will be signed at time of adoption.
We will NOT ship Guinea Pigs and we encourage all potential adopters to come meet all of the pigs in the rescue to ensure that the pet you choose will work out well with your family.
