Aren't babies cute?!?! Just remember, babies may not be the best choice for families with young children. While cute, babies tend to be nippy, squirmy and stratchy! Not to mention impossible to catch!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Anton, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Phoenix.

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