Captain Cactus's Story...
These two are best buds! They can not be separated because they have been together through thick and thin. They like to interact with people once they have gotten to know them. At first at the shelter they were a bit nervous but they have warmed up quickly. They where surrendered for allergies reasons but guinea pigs are considered hypoallergenic because they do not have fur they have hair, the same DNA as human hair. So allergies are usually a part of the environment and not the guinea pigs. Of course they can collect bedding on their hair or hay and that will cause an allergic reaction. So if you would like to adopt these two couch potatoes please complete our pre-adoption form at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Captain Cactus, a Aurora 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 Aurora, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Aurora.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Aurora 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 Aurora 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 Aurora paves the way for another one to be saved.
