We are taking applications for those who already own a guinea pig and are looking for a friend for him/her. If you own a male guinea pig, the wait to adopt after your application has been approved may be 3 months (and possibly longer).

For those who don't already own a guinea pig, we require that you adopt one of our already bonded pairs. At this time, we have a limited number of guinea pigs so unfortunately, we are not taking applications to adopt a pair or to create a pair. We do not adopt out guinea pigs to live alone.
