We set up appointments to visit the guinea pigs in our rescue as the rescue is run out of private homes.
Our Adoption Process:
All appointments require an application be filled out. Adoption fees are $25 per guinea pig.
There is an adoption contract which needs to be signed.
Why should you adopt?
small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals
including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
