Available Guinea Pigs

Adoption Policy »
  1. Before applying, review the page about appropriate CAGES (click here) . It is very important to us that your guinea pig has a proper size cage!
  2. We do NOT SHIP guinea pigs. You must be able to come to us for the adoption.
  3. We do NOT ADOPT to minors. Heads-of-household only can apply to adopt. Please do not apply to adopt if you are a minor living with your parents.
  4. We do NOT ADOPT to people who have other pets living outdoors (with the exception of horses and other farm animals).
  5. Review important guinea pig DIET information: What to Feed Your Guinea Pig.
  6. We have a "pairs policy". If you own a guinea pig, we are happy to help you find a compatible friend amongst ours. If you don't own a guinea pig, you may adopt a bonded pair or create a pair from our single guinea pigs. When you don't already own a guinea pig, we highly recommend adopting one of our bonded pairs - that way you know you have a pair that gets along, and won't run the risk of them not getting along once you get them home.

Fees »

Fees as of Jan 1, 2019

  • $65 per neutered male guinea pig
  • $80 per spayed female guinea pig
  • $110 for bonded pairs (Pairs listed on the site together)
  • Unlike some other rescue groups, all of our guinea pigs are spayed/neutered and have been to a vet for a checkup prior to adoption. While the adoption fee helps to cover some of the vet costs, our expenses far exceed the adoption fees. Click Here to see why we feel that spaying/neutering our guinea pigs is so important. Not only does it control the guinea pig population, there are definite health benefits.
  • A contract must be signed at adoption time

Notice about adopting female guinea pigs:There is currently a higher demand for spayed, female guinea pigs than availability. There may be up to a two month waiting period after submitting an application. We are limited by which guinea pigs are available in the local shelters and availability of foster homes. We appreciate your patience when adopting.

    Richard is a very happy and contented pig, he is friendly to other pigs and seek their company out. He loves to get his nose and chin scratched and will stretch out his neck and hold his head very stiff to get these scratches. He has learned to take treats offered by hand and is very gentle. Richard is a good eater and relishes his vegetables everyday. He loves wheatgrass and carrots along with most green leafy vegetables. When being fed and getting hay, he gives appreciative popcorns.

    They call me Churro because I'm sweet and delightful. I am a very curious fellow who loves floor time and getting to know my humans. I've always enjoyed lettuce, corn husks, or a taste of dry oatmeal and I'll let you pet me while you feed me. I have soft brown fur with a little white beard to make me look more intellectual. Yes, I'm a jaunty little man with loads of personality. I just need the right family to help me find my place in the world.

    Altered:Spayed

    Hi, I’m Azellia! I’m a spunky gal with the cutest face you’ve ever seen. Sometimes I'm a little shy around people, but I know how to get their attention! When I hear a bag crinkle I let out my mighty wheek, resulting in lots of oxbow cookies and cilantro from my foster mom. I also love to purr and purr and purr when sitting on her lap. I'm really looking for my own forever home with a sweet boy who loves me for who I am. I hope I get to meet him soon, and go to a forever home with lots of chin rubs!

    Name:Adagio
    Sex:Female
    Type: Tortoise shell & White/Ridgeback
    Age: 1 Year , 6 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    Hi! Adagio here. I don't know if I can be described as "slow tempo", but I definitely am generally calm, soothing, and sweet. I may shy away at first, but hold me in your arms and stroke me, and I'll just purr and purr and settle down for a nap with you. I have the loveliest tri-color Abby fur that has become so silky and lush living with my loving foster mom. I also have a cute black spot of fur right over my behind that Mom says is so cute to watch when I'm running around. I wish I had a special guinea pig friend. I'm very laid back, not an Alpha Diva at all, and am nice to both girls and boys. I love romaine lettuce, spring mix, tomatoes, parsley, radicchio, and corn husks. I DO NOT eat carrots. Don't ask me why. I love orchard grass and timothy hay plus Oxbow pellets for guinea pigs. Do give me a look. It's time for me to settle down into a permanent home.

    Name:Nibella (Eye-makeup)
    Sex:Female
    Type: White w/ Brown eyes/American Shorthair
    Age: 7 Months
    Altered:No

    Hello. While my "given name" is Nibella, my foster mommy calls me Eye-Makeup. She thinks the colors around my eyes are just so pretty. I'm getting real tired of living with my sisters, and I'm looking forward to moving out on my own with my own boyfriend.

  •  

    Name:Nibellene (brown face)
    Sex:Female
    Type: White w/ red and brown on face/American Shorthair
    Age: 7 Months
    Altered:No

    I am the shyest of my three other siblings. Don't misunderstand - it there's a cookie to be found, I'll be over by the side of cage real fast! But when you try to pick me up, I can run quickly. But once you are holding me, I settle down, especially if a carrot is involved :)

  •  

    Name:Nibbles
    Sex:Female
    Type: Black faced White/American Shorthair
    Age: 7 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    I'm the biggest of my four sisters. We all came into the rescue together soon after we were born. I'm full of personality and like playing with other pigs. My foster mommy lets me play with her other pigs in the house. I really like that :) I want a boy for my own playmate. I'm tired of living with my sisters!

  •  

    Name:Nibea (Tan nose)
    Sex:Female
    Type: White w/ Blonde Face/American Shorthair
    Age: 7 Months
    Altered:No

    I'm one of four babies that came into the rescue soon after we were born. My foster mommy calls me the "escape artist". During floortime, I learned a cool trick - I can jump over the small pen cages. I thought that was fun! Foster mommy - not so much. She put-up higher floortime fences...

    Hi, I'm Vixen. Here are a few things I want you to know about me. I love to eat. I have trained my foster mom to giving me my richly deserved treats by coming to the side of my cage and letting her know that it's time. I love my floor time and my lap time. I entertain my foster mom by doing zoomies around my cage. Hey, a girl's got to stay in shape. I hope to try out for the Piglympics. I'm looking for a nice boy to settle down with. I hope you will consider me.

    Age: 2 Years , 7 Months
    Altered:Neutered

    Hello, aren't we the two cutest boys you've ever seen? Sadly our last owner didn't play with us much so we are scaredy pigs right now but with a couple of weeks of snuggles and pets we will be the best pigs you could ever have. Won't you open your hearts and give us a chance?

    Name:Kiffie
    Sex:Female
    Type: Black & White/American Shorthair
    Age: 4 Years , 10 Months
    Altered:Spayed
    Special Needs:YES

    Hi! I'm Kiffie. I recently lost my buddy and my family so I am hoping to find a place to call home again. I'm a pretty laid back pig and have the perfect balance of sweet and sassy. I don't care too much for lap time (that might change with a friend), but once I get to know you, you can pet me in the cage. In the morning I will wait patiently for a cookie and a head scratch. I like to purr if you scratch the right spot. Despite my age, I am a very active pig and LOVE racing around on floor time. So, I would like a home that would give me a chance to run around a bit in a safe setting. My foster mom likes to call me Speedy. I'm a very punctual pig and like order. When veggies are late in the evening, I make sure to let my foster family know!

  •  

    Name:Moana & Riley
    Sex:Male/Female Pair
    Type: Tri-color & Chocolate Brown/American Shorthair & Abby
    Age: 1 Year , 8 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed

    Riley and Moana (moh-AH-nah) are a close, active pair. They like to rearrange their cage and are curious when new things are given to them. They came to MGPR scared, but have calmed down quite a bit and should fully blossom with a little time and patience. Moana (shorthair, tricolor) has a beautiful coat and a face you just can't say no to. She's a little shy but happy. Like many guinea pigs, she doesn't like being picked up, but once you've got her, she will cuddle. She will run to Riley if she's frightened. Riley (brown, Abyssinian ) is a loaf of whirly, spiky fur who is quite vocal when he disapproves of something, such as you not petting him in the approved manner. He likes to complain and proclaim his rejection of the social construct of cuteness, but the truth is that once he gets to know you he will sit quietly in your lap, take a treat from your hand, and even relax and curl up. But don't tell anyone.

    Name:Tikka & Elliot
    Sex:Male/Female Pair
    Type: Red w' White Blaze / Black/White/Blonde/Abbyssinian & American Shorthair
    Age: 5 Years , 11 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed

    My name is Tikka (Red/White Abby) and my friend is Elliot. Elliot and I have a May-December romance. I am 6 years old. He is 3 years old.
    Although I am just beautiful and very calm, I have been returned to MGPR twice. It was during my last "non-forever" home where I got to become friends with Elliot. Now together, we are looking for our "forever", forever home.

    Name:Count & Kayley
    Sex:Male/Female Pair
    Type: Brown w' little bit of white & ?/Abbyssinian Razor & ?
    Age: 2 Years , 11 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed

    I am a handsome chocolate brown fellow who looks after Kayley and lets her share my treats. I enjoy lap cuddles, romaine lettuce and singing for my supper. You'll be impressed to see how I love yummy sweet hay. I'm fluffy and friendly, looking for a forever home with my dear friend Kayley.

    Do you want to snuggle a plump ball of fur? I'll even purr if you rub under my neck. I like pretty much every kind of treat from greens to oranges. I've been living in peace and harmony with Count so I hope your heart is big enough for both a ball of fur and a bundle of fluff.

  •  

    Name:Delaney
    Sex:Female
    Type: Tri-Color/American
    Age: 10 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    I am very energetic and curious, so try to keep up! I am very vocal and will let you know when I am hungry or want attention. I'm easygoing with humans, and very calm when handled. I love nose pettings, playing in my fleece forest, showing off my beautiful whiskers, but most of all I LOVE to eat! I haven't met a veggie or treat I didn't like, and require a ton of hay! I popcorn a lot, but when I settle down I like to lounge in my bed with my tiny legs stretched out behind me. I need a friend who is just as goofy, energetic, and outgoing enough to keep up with me.

  •  

    Name:Yasmin
    Sex:Female
    Type: Black & Red/Abyssinian
    Age: 11 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    Yasmin is a sparkly and extroverted pig. She loves greeting her foster mom every time and bags shamelessly for treats which she will gladly take from hand. Yasmin likes to be scratched and makes little "quacking" sounds when her body is massaged. Yasmin is a very friendly pig that will do well with a friend. She is a voracious eater and gobbles all kinds of vegetables heartily.

    Name:Hadmut
    Sex:Female
    Type: Red/American Shorthair
    Age: 11 Months
    Altered:No
    Special Needs:YES

    Hello, Have you ever seen a sweeter face? I didn't think so. I am so anxious to find a friend and a forever home. There is one little thing I need to tell you about. When I was really tiny they tried to spay me and things didn't go swell with the anesthesia. The vet woke me up and decided I should grow a bit more before trying again. Well I didn't do so well the second time either. Oh they did spay me so that's good but if I ever need surgery again I will need a VERY experienced exotics vet to do it. Aside from that I'm ready to find a friend and a family and move right in. I sure hope that is your home.

    Age: 9 Months
    Altered:Neutered

    I am a young, sweet, energetic boy who will show you how happy I am by doing lots of popcorning during floor time. I am still learning how to kiss, so sometimes I nibble, which is something to keep in mind if you have young kids. I love both exploring during floor time followed by a nice snuggle on your lap. I love my treats so much I will come right up to you to get one and if you're running late, I will make sure you know. My ideal home is one where you give me lots of floor time to play and lots of snuggles.

I’m also a fan of snacking on my foster mom’s lap, and purring up a storm when she pets me! I’m looking for a forever home with a nice boy. I really hope I get to meet him soon!
