Filbert & Nigella's Story...
Filbert and Nigella are a bonded pair of guinea pigs who would like to become part of your family! Nigella is about 2 years old and is tan, brown, black and white. She is extremely curious and will start wheeking loudly if she thinks it is snack time. Filbert, who is neutered, is about a year old. He is black, white and brown, and coming out of his shell but is still a little shy. He loves attention and lap time. Sadly, they came into the Rescue with a friend, but she was older and had congestive heart failure, which led to her recent passing.

The piggies were saved after their owner posted a notice on the Internet that they would be left behind in a vacant house after the family moved. A kind-hearted person took them in and provided vet care in the interim but could not keep them permanently.

Filbert and Nigella have an excellent appetite and enjoy fresh vegetables, piles of hay and Oxbow Cavy Performance pellets every day. The pair will need to live in a Cubes and Coroplast cage of at least 2 cubes by 4 cubes and be in a family part of the house so everyone can enjoy their company. We also ask that anyone adopting her lives a reasonable driving distance from Rockville, MD.

The adoption fee for Filbert and Nigella will be $80. If you are interested in finding out more about adopting this sweet pair of guinea pigs, please send an e-mail to

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Filbert & Nigella, a Monrovia 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 Monrovia, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Monrovia.

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