Austin Guinea Pig Rescue
Our Featured Pets...
We have (depending on availability) hamsters, gerbils, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rabbits and guinea pigs looking for new homes at this time.
Who We Are
Austin Guinea Pig Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization dedicated to rehoming guinea pigs, chinchillas,
hamsters, gerbils, mice, degus, hedgehogs and other small
animals that may come into foster care in the Austin, Texas area.
Our animals are treated for any medical issues, socialized, and
fostered until they are ready to be adopted. Any animals that
cannot be adopted for health or behavioral reasons will have a home
for the remainder of their lives.
If you are interested in fostering one of our animals until they go to an adoptive home, please check out our foster information.

About our Adoption Process:
About our Adoptive Small Animals (Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Gerbil, Hamster, Mouse, Chinchilla, Hedgehog, Ferret):
You must be an adult to apply for adoption.
All animals must be housed indoors. Outdoor situations will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
We will check veterinary references on any current pets you may have.
We may visit your home by appointment to meet family members, other pets, and to evaluate home safety conditions.
If your application is approved, you may adopt an animal suitable to your home and family.
An adoption fee is due at the time of final adoption. Adoption fees are non-refundable.
Some adoptions have additional requirements.
Small animals are not neutered depending on species (rabbits and ferrets will always be spayed or neutered, chinchilla males will always be neutered, some guinea pig males may be neutered).
Small animals either have to be housed alone or with same-sex animals (unless previously neutered).
Small animals are treated for any known health problems prior to adoption.
Small animals are not microchipped.
The guinea pig adoption fee is $25. The hamster, gerbil and mouse adoption fee is $10. The rabbit, chinchilla, hedgehog and ferret adoption fee is $65.
