Ike's Story...

Ike and his brother Mike are two really nice piggies looking for forever homes.  Although they are brothers, they like their space.  Too close of quarters cause fights between them.  They are currently in two different foster homes getting lots of love and special attention and handling.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ike, a Merrillville 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 Merrillville, or seeking a Guinea Pig from a breeder in Merrillville.

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