I am good with kids.
We are currently accepting adoption applications for Ralph. You can request an application by emailing email@example.com Ralph is a male Guinea Pig born in approximately January 2014. Ralph is the ideal Guinea Pig. He is extremely friendly and loving. He enjoys attention and is very calm, as well as gentle. He is a much larger Guinea Pig, although that will not stop you from cuddling and adoring him like we do. Unfortunately, Ralph has been rehomed and put in rescue programs multiple times. As sad as it is, few people understand Guinea Pigs and too often get them as gifts for young children. Guinea Pigs are a great learning opportunity for children, but a child should not be the primary caregiver a Guinea Pig. Despite his experiences and life changes, Ralph adapts very well and still loves people. He would make a great family pet, but please be aware that do to his previous living situation, he may not live a long as a different Guinea. He also has some obesity that the adopter will need to be aware of and carefully manage. Please note that we are not a "first come, first served" rescue. We will choose the best fitting home for Ralph. Ralph's adoption fee is $40. We will provide proof of veterinarian examination, any/all other vet records under our care, and an information/care guide.

Little Lives Matter Small Animal Rescue is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization located in Tri-Cities, Washington. Our primary focus is on small animals such as rodents, reptiles, birds, etc.
We want to help our community as much as we can by rescuing small animals, reducing overpopulation, and educating the community on small animal care.

Come Meet Our Pets...
We attend PetSmart adoption events at the PetSmart on Canal in Kennewick, Washington. We do not do on-site adoptions, but this is an opportunity to see our adoptable pets in order for you to decide if you would like to apply.
Our Adoption Process...
1. Request an adoption application by emailing email@example.com (multiple page form requiring references, including a vet reference). 2. Home check. We are not a "first-come, first-served" rescue. We choose the best fitting home for that particular animal. 3. If the animal can safely be spayed/neutered, that will be done prior to adoption. Many small animals cannot be safely altered. 4. A signed adoption contract and adoption fee will be required at the time of adoption. Adoption fees vary depending on animal type. 5. A care guide, supply list, and veterinary contact information will be provided to the adopter at or before the time of adoption.
