Important Note

Carlton is best friends with Peaches. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Carlton & Peaches are a young pair of bonded guinea pigs. Carlton came from a local animal shelter as a stray and Peaches came directly from a family who couldn’t keep her. They met in foster care and have become firm friends.
Carlton is short haired, dark brown with white socks and a white stripe on his face and Peaches is a ginger, brown and white Abyssinian guinea pig. They are crazy little piggies who enjoy playing together chasing and popcorning around their cage and also having lap time and cuddles; though as with most young piggies they are not keen on sitting still for long!
Carlton and Peaches have excellent appetites and enjoy their fresh vegetables, piles of hay and Oxbow pellets every day. They 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 ask that anyone adopting them lives within a reasonable driving distance of Mt Airy, MD.
The adoption fee for Carlton & Peaches will be $80 as Carlton is neutered. If you are interested in finding out more about adopting this pair of piggies please send an e-mail to

About Small Angels Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Small Angels was founded in fall of 2003 when the organizers recognized a need for a group to help small animals abandoned at animal shelters. The Rescue was founded as a way to move these animals into foster homes for socialization and proper, attentive care, as well as streamline the adoption process and provide accurate, thorough information to adopters about these often misunderstood animals.

Small Angels is a 501(3)(3) nonprofit, no‐kill, all‐volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming guinea pigs, rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. Animals are acquired directly via public surrenders and from local shelters and animal welfare groups. We use an extensive network of foster homes to care for the animals until we can find them a forever home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Small Angels Rescue does not have a physical shelter—we care for animals through our network of foster care homes. We have monthly adoption events at the Frederick Petco and various Bark locations in Montgomery County. Not all breeds are brought to adoption events. Most adoptions take place at the animal's foster home or at an animal coordinator's house.

Our Adoption Process...

Small Angels Rescue’s adoption process is straightforward. Adopters must fill out an adoption application. There is an application for guinea pigs and a separate application for other animals. Once we have the completed application, we interview the adopter by phone or e-mail to clear up any questions and concerns about the application—including whether the adopter meets our cage requirements and has the proper supplies—and to ensure that the adopter has all of the information needed to properly care for the animal. At the time of adoption, adopters must sign an adoption contract.

Adoption fees: Mice, Gerbils, Hamsters & Rats: $10 each for the first three animals, then $5 each thereafter. Guinea Pigs: $35 each unaltered, $45 neutered males, $55 spayed females.
