Hello there! My name is Gonzo and I'm searching for my forever home! Like most Guinea Pigs, I can get nervous around new people, unexpected noises, and it takes a minute for me to settle in new places. I'm a very curious pig though, and will quickly start exploring my surroundings. Guinea pigs are very social animals that naturally live in herds, so I might like a guinea pig friend in the future to keep me at my happiest and healthiest. Though Guinea Pigs aren't hard to care for, we do require daily attention to ensure our living areas are kept clean, and we love food like hay, fresh veggies and daily vitamin C. A large cage, like a C&C cage, would be perfect for me. I'm ready to start another adventure, along with you! How about we meet and see if we're suited for a life together?

The adoption fee includes a courtesy veterinarian exam and plenty of post adoption support!

About Oregon Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

•Visitors can meet one-on-one with pets in our "Get Acquainted Rooms." Bring the whole family--even your dog.
•To meet one of the animals in foster care, contact the Foster Care Department by calling (503) 416-5025 or email to set up an appointment. If provided in the animal's description, you may directly e-mail the foster care volunteer.
•If your pet meet is a success, you'll need to complete an adoption application (please do not fax or email the application, although you can download it and fill it out before you visit).
•You will be interviewed by an OHS adoption assistant to be sure you are familiar with any special needs the animal might have.
•We have a variable adoption fee policy based on an animal's age, breed, temperament, behavioral issues, and physical condition. Learn more here. If you are over 60 years old, be sure to ask about the adoption discount offered through the Pets for the Elderly Program.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a pet at OHS, you'll need to fill out an adoption application and complete an interview with an adoption specialist. But what's more important is everything that comes before the application and the interview, namely, finding the best match possible.
