Guinea Pigs for Adoption

Guinea Pigs for adoption

Guinea Pigs are extremely chatty

As they are often very active and entertaining to watch and listen to, Guinea pigs make great companion animals. However, their needs are often misunderstood and having happy and content guinea pigs requires research, time and commitment. 

Why we say ‘Adopt don’t Shop’

Guinea pigs in pet shops are bred in bad conditions, meaning their health is often poor, temperaments can be unpredictable and you’re funding highly unethical mass breeding. 

Rescues all over the UK are struggling with unwanted animals. Why add to the problem of overpopulation when there are so many lovely guinea pigs waiting for their forever homes in foster care? 

Pet shops get their guinea pigs from highly unethical rodent mills which are horrible places. Vote with your money and don’t support them!

Give one of the many unwanted or abandoned guinea pigs a second chance at a good life

We will be in touch to provide you with support and guidance throughout your guinea pig’s whole life

Know the guinea pig before adopting. We will pair you up with a guinea pig which is right for you based on their personality

How do I provide a great guinea pig home?

Guinea Pigs are active and intelligent creatures who need to be given space to exercise, explore and relax. The larger, the better for their enclosure. You should be aiming for 16 square feet. They require a much larger space than most people (including pet shops) realise. They love tunnels, places to hide and wood to gnaw on. Here are our three top tips:  

Guinea pigs need friends! Never keep a single guinea pig

Healthcare & Diet – access to exotics vet and correct diet including unlimited, quality hay

Stimulation and fun – free roam time out of cage and new environments to explore safely
