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.

    Name:Aspen
    Sex:Male
    Type: Red Agouti/American Shorthair
    Age: 2 Years , 2 Months
    Altered:Neutered
    Special Needs:YES

    Hello, my name is ASPEN I have quite a long story to tell. I came to MGPR last August. I was confiscated by animal control in Walterboro South Carolina when they raided a cock fighting facility. It was very apparent from my behavior and the behavior of my friends that we were not there as pets. The shelter could not find a nearby place for us and contacted MGPR. MGPR made room for us but we needed transport up. That was a whole other terrible experience. We hitched a ride with a dog rescue that was transporting dogs up north. We were in a panel truck stacked floor to ceiling for over 12 hours with dozens of barking dogs. It was awful for us little guinea pigs. So, we arrived in the wee small hours of the morning and thought everything was going to be great. Some of my friends were able to settle down right away. A few of us took longer and a few others remain scaredy pigs.

    I went to a nice foster home and things seemed to be going well for me, but something happened that kind of put me off my food. After a dental and a lot of attention it was discovered that I had developed a true hate for the pellets the rescue uses. They have put me on an alternative pellet and I am doing great these days. My weight is up, and I am a sweet happy cuddle bug. I love to be held and I love my foster mom, but I have been in rescue almost a year now I am ready for a friend and a home of my own. If you adopt me, you will need to check my weight each week. No kidding every single week, and you will need to feed me a pellet called Selective. It is available on Amazon Prime for $16.09 or It is available from Petco for $9.69 with free shipping if you sign up for auto delivery. It is very possible that I will at some point need another dental. My teeth tip in a bit more than most guinea pigs creating a situation that would allow my teeth to over grow more quickly than most if something happens to put me off my food again.

    That is my story in all it is glory. Is there a place in your heart and home for me? I will be waiting for you.

    Name:Rhaegal
    Sex:Female
    Type: Brown & White/Americanshorthair
    Age: 1 Year , 2 Months
    Altered:No

    Does your boy need an adorable pal to run and play with? I'm athletic, proud, and shoutin' out loud that I am in charge. You want a quiet cuddle pig? I can be that too! My foster mom says I'm the best of both worlds. She also says I'm just the cutest little petite thing ever. I do, however, have the tendency to kiss with teeth so I'd be most suitable for someone aged 12+. I am so looking forward to my forever home. Maybe it can be with you! Put in an application!

    Well the good news is that the people that bought me at a pet store decided to dump me early. Now maybe I can get on with the business of finding a serious forever home. I hope that's with you

    Name:Astraea
    Sex:Female
    Type: Red/White/Black/Silkie
    Age: 1 Year , 6 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    Astraea is an absolutely beautiful and sweet guinea pig! She loves being held and cuddling. Of course she loves her veggies (you can hear her wheeking from anywhere in the house!) but shes a funny eater. She doesnt like cucumber skin or the white parts of romaine, so she leaves them behind. Shes very tame and lovable. Her long hair does take some grooming so be sure to ask for some styling tips if you adopt her.

    Altered:Spayed

    Hello, What do you think about my name. The first minute that the person at MGPR looked at me she said aren't you a cutie pie and that was all the thinking that needed to be done about a name for me. I'm a very social little lady. I've been living alone but I'd like a friend I think. I need a human too. My human was deployed and his family couldn't keep me. I was obviously very spoiled and loved by him so a really super devoted human is on my wish list too.

    Type: Black Agouti/Satin Mix
    Age: 11 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    Hi, my name is Roulette, and my life has certainly seemed like a wild game until MGPR rescued me! I was saved from a terrible hoarding situation in the Midwest, and brought all the way to Maryland by MGPR and their partner rescues for help. I was hardly a baby myself but already had three tiny babies of my own. My daughters and son are safe and have been adopted. It's my turn now to find a forever home. I love being with piglets, so my foster mom made sure to have me hang out with her personal piggies. I love handsome boys in particular, and romp around much of the day with the flirty boar here. He appreciates how gorgeous I am. I have silky dark brown/black fur with lovely orange highlights and soulful coal black eyes. I love to be held by loving humans. I've come to enjoy a range of veggies at MGPR, and have gotten plump and cuddly. I'm very sweet and peaceful. I would be so happy joining your home and meeting a nice boy with whom to flirt and play.
