We currently are not taking adoption applications at this time due to overwhelming demand and a backlog from canceling adoption meets earlier this year. We will open our application in November or December 2020. Please check back.

If you adopted from us in the past and your guinea pig lost his/her cagemate, please email info@mgpr.org. Unfortunately, if your guinea pig lost his/her cagemate and you have not adopted from us before, we are unable to help at this time.
