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.

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.

Ooo, look at all the lovely lady pigs here at MGPR! I can't wait to meet up and strut my stuff. Maybe it will be your girl whom I win over with my piggy moves?
Aretha & Etta Aretha & Etta
Sex:Female
Color/Type: Tri Color/American Short Hair / Abyssinian
Age: 2 Years
Altered: Spayed
Special Needs:YES
submit an application to adopt me
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.

Greetings! Do you like cuddle pigs? We are a loving pair of mature guineas who need a forever home to live out our golden years. Pansy is blind and needs eyedrops regularly. Are you the right family to give us a happy ending? We have lots more love to give.

I feel lucky to be cared for at such a special place as MGPR. I recently lost my best friend Henri to illness. I thought we would go to a new home together. Still, I know that my foster human will give me all the care that I need to keep going and make a new friend. I'm hanging in there OK but I'd like to meet a new friend as soon as possible.

I'm a sweet and calm girl. I'm a little shy, but I like human attention and have gotten along really well with my cage mate. My favorite trick is to wait until another piggy runs back to the hidey house with a cookie from the human. Then I steal it so I don't have to go get my own.

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 was at the shelter a while before they found room for me at MGPR, that means I haven't had a lot of TLC yet. But I'm so ready for a family that wants to spend a few weeks helping me to learn to love them. Now don't think that means I'm shy or timid. I'm actually a bit nosey. I promise to give you back everything you put into making me your piggy pet.

I'm no "love expert", but I'm hoping to meet that special someone. A friendly female piggy would do just fine. No reindeers or trolls need apply.

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.

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 can't guess how I got my name? Well maybe you can. I'm a very sweet boy that will need a bit of brushing here and there. I like to be held and can't wait to meet a forever friend and my very own forever family. I sure hope that's you.

If you've never held a "teddy" guinea pig, boy are you in for a treat! The fact that I'm adorable goes without saying, but I also have a fun texture that's a bit like holding a sheep. This puffball is hoping to go home with you soon!
