Ashes's Story...
Ashes is a 3 year old male Guinea pig who recently was rescued from unsanitary conditions. He is a sweet little fellow but a bit timid due to his new surroundings.

Please consider meeting him!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ashes, a Fairfax Guinea Pig was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Guinea Pig for sale in Fairfax, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Fairfax.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Fairfax already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Fairfax breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Guinea Pig breeders who help with Guinea Pig rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Fairfax paves the way for another one to be saved.
