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.

    I recently lost my friend since birth. I'd really like to find a new friend, but I do have a couple of little special considerations - I would be best to have paper bedding, not fleece, and I need special pellet - the Sherwood ones. But surely you can make these accommodations for me :)

    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. Richard loves hanging out in his fleece tunnel when not running about his cage.

    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 , 5 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    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 , 4 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed

    Riley and Moana (moh-AH-nah) are an active pair. They like to rearrange their cage and are curious when new things are given to them. They get excited when treats are coming. 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 for protection if she's frightened. Riley (brown, Abyssinian ) is a loaf of whirly, spiky fur who is quite vocal when he disapproves of something. Currently, Riley doesn't seem to like most petting, but 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. We're trying to persuade him that petting can be nice. Potential adopters should know that he may not change his mind, but that shouldn't keep him from being a great companion on his own terms.

    Album is a friendly pig who loves his veggies. He eats bell peppers, chard, romaine, dandelion leaves, wheatgrass and most leafy vegetables. He is not as fond of tomatoes and celery. Album is learning to allow himself to be picked up and once in hand, settles down very nicely. He makes little chirping sounds when scratched and enjoys sitting contentedly watching TV in the evenings.
