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 Buttons! I've been waiting for the right boar to come along for a while now. The humans think I might like a nice musky boar. Hey, everyone's got their preference! I love humans, gentle scratches on top of my head, and food. My foster mom says I'm her daily welcome wagon, because I stretch as tall as I can get to look over the cage at her.

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!

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 wheaking. Once I start wheaking, 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

Color/Type: Tri Color/American Short Hair / Abyssinian
Age: 1 Year , 10 Months

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.

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.

submit an application to adopt me
I'm Vargas, and those who know me call me a well-mannered gentlepig. That's partly because I'm very particular as to where I go to the bathroom, so I don't make any messes. I wound up in the rescue after my previous owner died, and the family decided they didn't want me. But I want another family - maybe that will be with you.

I'm a super-energetic boy who loves to make noise! Once you catch me I love to be held and I'll even let you push my "cuddle button" (crest). If you're a fan of piggy sounds and have an active girl who needs a buddy, I'm your guy!

Sawyer is very energetic! He loves to run free and play. He is a little wiggly when you hold him, but he is quickly learning that lap time equals lots of good scritches! If you're looking for a little piggy that has a lot of zest for life, then apply to adopt Sawyer today!

Zamboni and Lucretia are a very much in love couple. Zamboni is very outgoing and loves to be held. Lucretia is shy but very curious and likes to be held as well. They both LOVE their veggies and especially their Orchard Grass hay. They are large piggies and are definitely in charge! They had been adopted out once but unfortunately their family could not keep them so they returned them to us. Could you be their forever family?

submit an application to adopt me
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.

Hello, I'm a very shy girl. I'm hoping I can find a nice friend to live with and maybe come out of my shell a little. Do you think you could help me with that. I sure hope so. I really want some people and a piggy to love.
