Guinea Pigs Available for Adoption

Adoption Policy:

  1. Before applying, review the page about appropriate CAGES (click here) . It is very important to us that your guinea pig has a proper size cage!
  2. We do NOT SHIP guinea pigs. You must be able to come to us for the adoption.
  3. We do NOT ADOPT to minors. Heads-of-household only can apply to adopt. Please do not apply to adopt if you are a minor living with your parents.
  4. We do NOT ADOPT to people who have other pets living outdoors (with the exception of horses and other farm animals).
  5. Review important guinea pig DIET information: What to Feed Your Guinea Pig.


Adoption Fees:

Notice about adopting female guinea pigs:There is currently a higher demand for spayed, female guinea pigs than availability. There may be up to a two month waiting period after submitting an application. We are limited by which guinea pigs are available in the local shelters and availability of foster homes. We appreciate your patience when adopting.

I am a very energic boy would is very curious of my surroundings. I like to sit on top of my hidey and watch everything thats going on. I also like to climb. I am a sweet boy who is very vocal and I love all my veggies.

I can be little "nippy" at times, but I'm getting better :) I know this is sort of yucky, but my poops tend to be soft. I'm fine on Carefresh-type of bedding (you barely even notice), but I don't do well on fleece.

My name means "dinner", and that's what I've got on my mind! One look into my soulful eyes and you'll want to treat me to a delicious dinner date with your boy or one of MGPR's. Lettuce, carrots, tomatoes... mmm, sounds just right for a romantic afternoon. Let's get to know each other at the next meet!
Aretha & Etta Aretha & Etta

Special Needs:YES

This sweet pair comes with curiosity as well as beauty. Aretha is very interested in everything that goes on in the room. Her foster mom says she is just nosy. Etta is more shy but is extra sweet. Coincidentally both girls have a permanent head tilt due to prior ear infections.

The girls are listed as special needs because Aretha has slight paralysis that prevents her from blinking and moistening her eye. As a result she gets an eye drop twice a day. They are wonderful girls and would love a permanent home with someone who has just a few minutes every day to make sure Aretha's eye stays healthy.

Hello, I'm Petra. I am a very sweet girl and I'm very eager to find my new forever home. I've had some good-bad luck since MGPR found me. First bad luck was two nasty lumps that had to be removed (probably infected bites) Good luck MGPR thought I was well worth the surgery and after care. Next bad luck, I've grown cataracts in both of my eyes. I'm blind now. Good Luck my great foster mom Pam realized something was wrong. Now I've been diagnosed and they can find the right kind of home for me. I'm going to need one with a nice CALM boy and older children that can understand that the world is a scary place for me without my sight. The next good luck is going to be you adopting me. Then I'll know the bad luck is in my past. Nose touch Petra.
Daniel Daniel

Altered: Neutered
  
Status: Adopted
Hello! My name is Daniel Pig. I was brought to an MGPR foster home after my favorite Human passed away. I was very attached to him and missed him very much - I was really scared and VERY skinny. After being with my Foster Family for a few months, I have gained a lot of weight, and I am happy and healthy. I am kind of hard to pick up, but I love to be held and snuggled - I grit my teeth happily while watching TV with my foster Mom. She thinks that I'd be better suited for a family without small children because I run away when being picked up and I try to jump into my cage when being put back. I am looking for a girl-pig to be my buddy, and I would love to have a forever family who would give me the stability that I need and the snuggles that I crave.

Hello I bet you are wondering about my name. Well here's the story. There is this girl, her name is Lacena. She was very, very sick and lonely too, so the people at MGPR gave me to her. We couldn't live quite together because she felt so bad, but we lived in a divided cage and I cleaned her little ears through the grid. We slept touching it seemed like true love to me. Then Lacena got better and it was time to start the bonding. Lacena hates me when the grid comes down. So here I am totally unwanted and ignored now that she is better. Maybe you have a guinea pig girl that will see me for the true Gift I am.

Hey, I'm all about that base. If that's your kind of girl then here I am. It is true that the bad Dr. said I need to go on a slight diet but we don't really need to talk about that do we? I'm cuddly and just a bit squishy. The perfect pig to hold on your lap and read with. I need a friend too. If I had someone to piggy train with I'm sure we could just forget about the diet stuff right :)

Hello I am one big boy and I'm ready to meet my true lady love. Once I do I'll have a lot to offer her. I do have one slight issue. I have a patch of missing hair. It's not a big issue but the doctor does not think it's going to grow back. As far as I'm concerned it's just a place to give me extra tickles. So fill out an application to adopt me. I'm ready for my very last forever home.

When you try to pick me up, I will let you know that I don 't like it! Once I realize that I'm going to get snuggles and pets or floor time, I quiet down. I like to wait to eat my greens and carrots so nobody is watching me. My favorite daily activity is taking a nap in a tunnel or hide. I can be a curious pig so if it's lap time, I need to be in a snuggle sack or cuddle cup. If I'm in your arms, I want to explore the back of your couch.

I'm a sassy little lady complete with a little ginger spot on my right hip, who loves to zoom and popcorn after breakfast, cage cleanings and lap time. I love eating carrots, spring mix, romaine and green leaf lettuce. When it's lap time, I love to snuggle in a cuddle cup and have head rubs. Do you have a single male pig who would like to popcorn and zoom with me?

Hello I'm Ivory. You'll need to see my fur to really understand what a beautiful guinea pig I am. I do have a little problem I need to tell you about. I have a class 2 heart murmur. It needs no treatment and I will most likely live a long and healthy life. It will just mean that if I ever need a general anesthetic the veterinarian will need to be a little extra cautious with me. So please don't let this get in the way of adopting me. The very best thing for my little heart would be a handsome boy pig and a forever family of my very own. **A note from the foster parent** Ivory is such a cool piggy! She's very chatty and loves to wheek a lot. Surprisingly, she's not afraid at all of reaching into her cage for a quick pet. She stands still while I tickle behind her ears, her nose and head. She's a very happy little piggy with the cutest little pig face. She really is a delight to be around.

Just thinking about some yummy pesticide-free clover from your yard sends me into a delicious daydream. I love spring forages like grass and dandelion too, but only if you're sure there's been no spray or dog business on them! I sure won't complain about store-bought veggies instead to round out my breakfast. Mmmmm...lettuce....
