Hello, my name is Guinea Pig Adoption

Guinea Pig Adoption

A little bit about me..

Many of our Guinea Pigs have come into our care due to neglect, the rest are simply no longer wanted.  If you adopt a Guinea Pig from us, they will come health checked and males will be neutered ready to begin their new life with you.  All of our Guinea Pigs are re homed in bonded pairs or re homed where there is an existing Guinea Pig waiting for a companion.

Can you meet your Guinea Pig’s needs?

  • Can you provide your Guinea Pig with a suitable and enriched hutch of no less than 160cm wide?
  • Can you provide daily access to a run of no less than 5ft x 4ft for exercise? Just because they are small does not mean that they do not need space, guinea pigs are active creatures and when not grazing on the grass they do a lot of ‘pottering’ around.
  • Do you have the time to spend interacting with you Guinea Pig every day? As well as to spot clean you Guinea Pig’s hutch out every day with a full clean at least once a week?
  • Guinea Pigs are social animals as such we will only rehome Guinea Pigs in pairs or as a single Guinea Pig to live with an existing Guinea Pig.
  • In the case of adopting a single Guinea Pig to bond with an existing Guinea Pig you will need to have the facilities to accommodate each Guinea Pig separately while bonding, this can take 2 weeks or more.
  • If living in rented accommodation we will need written permission from the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on premises.
