Facts about Klondike
Species: Guinea Pig
good with kids and good with small animals.
I am good with kids and good with small animals.
Klondike is looking for a family with a gentlepig needing a pal. Klondike is a laid back kinda guy but does like his floor time for a good exploring session. He's a pretty big boy, and may still have some growing to do! Fresh veggies are a must for this fella and he loves burrowing under his hay. Bring your furry fella over for a play date with this handsome piggin. He does want to be the boss, so plenty of space is an absolute must for him and his future roomie.
Our goal is twofold – to provide homeless pets with loving homes and provide judgement-free advice to their well-intentioned human family members to facilitate the happily ever after. We find that guinea pigs are commonly incorrectly perceived as “starter pets” for kiddos, and given up or abandoned when it becomes clear that they can be higher maintenance, more expensive or more fragile than expected. It’s also why one of our main goals at Cavies and Canines is education – we want your family to find a pet that is the perfect fit for them … a win-win for everyone! Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment to an animal that will be your loving companion and your best friend. Our goal is to keep animals in loving homes and off the streets and out of shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...
We are a foster home based rescue. We encourage appointments Friday-Monday for families to come meet our available pets.
Those with single guinea pigs looking for a friend are encouraged to bring them over for a "piggin play date" to ensure it is a good match.
We are now serving the Hampton Roads area and are based in Chesapeake, VA with additional foster homes throughout Virginia Beach.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoptions are based on an application process, which includes a vet reference and sometimes a home visit. Our dogs (and cats, when we have them available for adoption) have completed their age-appropriate shots, are dewormed, spayed/neutered and heartworm tested/treated before adoption. Our guinea pigs are available for adoption ONLY as same-sex pairs or as a friend for an existing guinea pig(s). Females are placed on 10-week pregnancy watch before adoption, and all undergo a health/behavior evaluation and are treated for parasites, if needed. Guinea pigs will only go to homes with appropriately sized housing, which we offer for sale at discounted rates. We require surrender and adoption contracts for the safety of our animals, foster families and future adopters. Animals that are adopted from us must be returned to us and not rehomed or taken to a shelter if circumstances change.
