Guinea pigs

Meet Daisy and Mouse

Daisy and Mouse


1 year

Daisy and Mouse are a super sweet pair of girls who are now ready for a forever home. They are around 10 months old and their characters are just starting to show. Unfortunately they weren’t handled much in their previous home so are very shy. They are looking for a patient and experienced owner who will commit to lots of cuddles and attention, and an understanding that it may take a little time to come out of their shells. Although nervous, they are very curious girls who can easily be bribed with food, favourites being cucumber, peppers and parsley! Like most piggies, they don’t much like being caught, but will settle for a short time on a lap and their confidence is growing. These beautiful girls are inseparable and will be fantastic companions given time to settle.

Key basic requirements

If you want to apply to adopt guinea pigs, please ensure you have the following:

To consider you as a guinea pig adopter we require you to meet these welfare standards as a minimum. We are happy to advise on cages, diet, enrichment and just about anything else before you dive into buying new things for your guinea pigs. 

Please remember that pet shops and generally poorly informed and put profit before animal welfare, so accept their guidance with caution. Often, cages marketed as ‘extra large’ are below even the basic minimum welfare requirements. 

Even if you have kept guinea pigs for years, please take a read through our guinea pig care information page linked below as welfare recommendations often change with new research. 

A large cage, aiming for 16 square feet for a pair. More space will be needed for larger groups

We always recommend and prefer 'C&C' style enclosures

Identified a suitable exotics vet near you and how you will fund emergency vet treatment

Correct knowledge on guinea pig nutrition and diet

Suitable enrichment, toys and activities

Be able to provide a home to multiple guinea pigs as they cannot be kept alone

Property owner's permission to keep guinea pigs if renting

Considered who will care for guinea pigs when you are away on holiday

Please include as much information as possible. We put great effort into selecting the best home so we don't reserve an animal until the final stage of the adoption process.
