Guinea pigs for adoption and long-term fostercare

 

If you would like to find out more about adopting or fostering a rescue guinea pig, please read our adoption and foster care pages before contacting us.

We also like to talk to new adopters about their previous experience and requirements. Many pigs may be too large for younger children for example. Or they may have specific grooming needs, be higher maintenance than others, need more handling, have a tendency to bite (although this is rare, it’s not unheard of so we always advise that pigs like this should have adult owners). These factors should all be considered when selecting a guinea pig rather than just going for the cutest.

Our Facebook page shows more current admissions and back stories with regular updates.  Some of our pigs available for adoption are shown below.  Please get in touch for the very latest information on who is available.

Please note that we are not a pet shop, and adopters are only approved after our vetting process.


Rio and Sweetie

Rio and Sweetie

Rio (pictured left) is a ginger/white rex and Sweetie (pictured right) is a tri-coloured abyssinian mix. Both are two years old and ready for adoption having been on short-term foster with a volunteer for handling. They are a bit shy and quiet so will need extra-gentle owners.
