Guinea pigs for adoption

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

We 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.


Puzzle and Pinky

Puzzle is a cream and white abyssinian castrated boar born 2016. A little girl found him being used as dog bait by some boys in a park, she offered them her pocket money to take him home and then her mum brought him into us.

Pinky is a pink sow born 2017. She was brought to us having been found abandoned at a railway station – a few weeks later, despite being very young herself, she gave birth to a baby boar and sow! One of them (Parsley) is shown in the picture, however she has recently been paired with her own friend and will soon go to her new home.

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 and because of their back story these two would need to go to an indoor home.


Coco and Bubbles
