Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue

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.

I'm "cute as a button" and sweeter than pie, so I don't know why my first owners turned me loose outside in the middle of winter. Luckily I was found by a good samaritan who brought me to MGPR. I'm still learning that humans can be trusted and I'm still pretty shy, but I love sitting on laps and having my ears scratched. I'm looking for a forever home with an endless supply of carrots, hearts full of love, and a boar companion of my very own.

Hi, I'm Jan. Do you like to cuddle? Then Sandy and I are the piggies for you! We think everything offered in front of our faces is food, so just keep your hands petting the rest of us if you'd rather not receive a "kiss with teeth". Sandy is curious and easy to pick up. She starts telling you right away how much she loves being petted. I'm shy and hard to catch, but then I totally relax in your lap. After a few minutes you'll hear my happy burbling!

This enchanting princess is one of our "Phenomenal Five" long-haired silkies. They were surrendered as pups at four weeks old. These beauties are accustomed to being held and will make great pets for those able to manage the extra care and grooming. Gaia will need regular brushings and hair clippings, and may need more frequent cage cleanings to keep their luscious locks lovely. For the right owner it will be well worth it!

Hello, I'm Raymond the Rainbow or RayRay for short (the one on the right). I come right up to the side of my cage and jump up asking for head scratches. I'm a charmer, what can I say? In foster care I met my lady Scarlett who fell head-over-paws for me, and now we are inseparable! I do like the taste and feel of fingers on my teeth. I don't really bite, but I guess I just needed to divulge my little secret. So, we would be best suited for older children or adult owners. Won't you consider a devoted pair like us?

No fussy pigs here! I, Yara, and my best friend, Midas, are quick to adapt to new digs and enjoy the quiet life with a hearty appetite. We like to eat everything that is food and never nibble fingers. Give us a big ol' pile of hay and we'll be as happy as pigs in... hay. I'm very inquisitive and will touch noses with you. Please make sure to get a sleeping bag (available at the adoption meet) for my lap time so I don't wander off! After a few minutes of walking around and around while you pet me, I'll settle down and even close my eyes to enjoy the petting! Midas also likes feeling safe in a sleeping bag at first. We're looking forward to fun snuggly times with our new family! If you want a lot of happy pig to love without the drama, we're your pair.

Well here we are, a couple that has ended up together against all odds. The shelter wanted to put us down because of a positive fungal culture. MGPR said NO. Then MGPR wanted to separate us because of a little pregnancy issue but the our foster mother said NO!!. I'll house them separately until I can get them well, weaned and back together again. That's exactly what she did. So here we are with a lot of history behind us but we are together again and ready to take the next big step into our new life. Thank You Foster Mommy :)So is there room in your home and heart for us? There is room in our hearts for you. Now there is the addition of the fact that we were adopted and returned years later. We still have a lot of love to give and there is a lot to be said for a nice mature couch piggy or two.

Trudy is very much an interior decorator. She will move anything she can to make it just how she likes it. She has to have her food bowl in her pigloo & will rearrange everything to have it that way the second you try to remove it. She loves being a floor time boss but once she's in your lap she melts - flopping over on her side & closing her eyes! You will love having a pig with so much personality!

Hello I'm Loretta. I managed to wiggle my way into the rescue even though all of the cages were full. One of the rescues back up foster mommies was out picking up rabbits and rats and other things. I could just tell she was a sucker. I jumped up on the side of the cage and started shaking the bars all sad like. Then when she opened the door I was climbing out into her arms as fast as I could. I've been in the shelter since May when my human had to go into a care facility and couldn't take me. I was well loved and I know how to love back. I think I'm your next pet :)
