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!
Sprout Sprout
Sex:Female
Color/Type: Brown Agouti/American Short Hair
Age: 2 Years , 7 Months

Status: Adopted
My name is Sprout. I've had a rough year but I'm still hopeful I'll find the right pig and owners for me. I'm a very sweet piggy who loves to be held and snuggled. If you have a little fleece sack, I'm happy to curl up in it and fall asleep in your lap. I used to be really shy but I've been working really hard not to be. I run to the bars to see what's going on in the room and I even stand still so my foster mom can give me a quick scratch behind the ears. Ear scratches are the best! Did I mention how I love to lick? When I'm being held, I like a good butt rub which usually gets me wheeking. Once I start wheeking, I give lots and lots of piggy kisses.

I've been waiting quite a while for my forever home and the nice people at MGPR have finally figured out I just don't want to live with a boy piggy, no matter how nice he is. So from now on no boys please, I only want to be introduced to girl pigs.
Aretha & Etta Aretha & Etta
Sex:Female
Color/Type: Tri Color/American Short Hair / Abyssinian
Age: 2 Years , 1 Month
Altered: Spayed
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.

Hey y'all, this year for Halloween I decided to dress up as a grizzly cub wearing a polar bear suit. I figured I looked so adorable in my costume that I'd wear it all the time. I'll bet your girl will think I'm cute too! How many "divots" do you think I have in my fur?

I'm a happy-go-lucky little pig with a sweet little face! I love to chat with my foster people in a conversational tone, and purr when I get my favorite foods. Fashionable as I am, I have a little secret: a couple of bald spots on my back. I don't remember how I got them! They are barely noticeable, don't bother me, and the vet says I am totally healthy, so I hope this doesn't keep you from making me your new companion. Watch how excited I get to greet my humans: http://youtu.be/DmoF9z2wnQA

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.

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.

I became an internet sensation when I came into MGPR with a ringworm infection on my cute little nose. Name ideas followed from my fans and I think my name has quite a "ring" to it. Thanks to our volunteers and donors, I'm now totally healthy and you can kiss that nose as much as you want!

My friend Ringer and I were saved from an untimely end by MGPR's awesome volunteers. Due to a fungal infection, we were scheduled to be put to sleep at a shelter with limited resources. Luckily this handsome fellow is all better and wants to meet your girl!

Hey There, Kadence here. I'm a lively little lady looking for my own true love. We probably need to talk about my skirt a little. It appears that someone has been after me with a pair of scissors. No body actually knows because I've been through a few places since my friends and I were dropped off at a Shelter in N.Y. Rumor is we were a bit dirty. I think some one said something about my paw habits. Anyway if my skirt has been clipped that means it will most likely need to be tended to every month or two going forward. I will need a bit of brushing here and there too.

It's probably best to find an adult or older teenagers to adopt me. I can be nippy at times, especially if I'm having a "bad hair day" and want it to be left-alone.

If you've never had a piggy with a triangular face, now is the time! I'm educational and lovable all in one. The good folks at MGPR can help you determine whether my long hair is something you'd enjoy caring for. Then, all I have to do is meet your girl and win her heart!

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.

Status: Adopted
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.

Shell here. Like my friend Coral I've been passed around a bit. First my family got deployed. Then my next family needed to give us up I guess because they really hadn't done their home work and we were a bit more than they planned on. So now here I am homeless again. I know the nice people at MGPR will keep me until I do find my forever home but I sure hope that is sooner rather than later.

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.

Hello, We are Raven and Sunshine. I bet you can tell who is who. We are the very best of friends and just love playing together. We are also very good at training humans. The two other foster pigs here tell us they never got so many treats until we came along. We got some lungs on us and some moxie too. If the foster mom even stands up I (Raven) yell until I get treats. Not saying it always works but I'm pretty good. Now what we both want is a forever home of our very own. We want scratches and love and we are ready to bring lots of Sunshine to your life :) Get what we did there?????

Status: Adopted
I'm a quiet lady with regal airs, after all I am part Abyssinian. I'm a bit skittish when I hear strange noises but I definitely recognize the sound of a plastic bag that indicates it's time for food! I like carrots and spring mix the most. When it's time for snuggles, I can be a bit adventuresome and try to explore everywhere except my cuddle cup. Is your boy pig looking for a refined lady like me?
