Available Guinea Pigs

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.
  6. We have a "pairs policy". If you own a guinea pig, we are happy to help you find a compatible friend amongst ours. If you don't own a guinea pig, you may adopt a bonded pair or create a pair from our single guinea pigs. When you don't already own a guinea pig, we highly recommend adopting one of our bonded pairs - that way you know you have a pair that gets along, and won't run the risk of them not getting along once you get them home.

Fees »

  • $55 per neutered male guinea pig
  • $70 per spayed female guinea pig
  • $100 for bonded pairs (Pairs listed on the site together)
  • Unlike some other rescue groups, all of our guinea pigs are spayed/neutered and have been to a vet for a checkup prior to adoption. While the adoption fee helps to cover some of the vet costs, our expenses far exceed the adoption fees. Click Here to see why we feel that spaying/neutering our guinea pigs is so important. Not only does it control the guinea pig population, there are definite health benefits.
  • A contract must be signed at adoption time

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.

    Special Needs:YES

    I'm Tucker, the handsome lad on the left. They say I have special needs but it's just that my poops can be a little soft. That's no problem, right? Boudica and I do have to be kept on paper bedding though - no fleece for us!

    Boudica is my buddy and she's on my right. She's named after a warrior queen because she was left behind when her family moved and a kindly real estate agent found her. Boudica is very happy to be here with me now looking for her forever family. Together, we're an adorable furry pair of survivors who like veggies so much we'll sing for them! But I always get the biggest piece. Boudica and I hope to see you at the next event. We'd be a great pair for the first time guinea pig owners!

    I have been busy training for the guinea pig Olympics. My favorite activities are running, running through an obstacle course, running into my pigloo, and running to grab leafy treats. The minute I hear your voice I'll be telling you it's time for my veggies because, when you're an athlete you have to take excellent care of your body.

    Special Needs:YES

    Well things didn't turn out quite like the rescue thought they would with us. We had been surrendered in a very large herd and standard protocol is to separate the males into single cages at the shelter we went to. So MGPR ended up with a few of us. To begin with we were in separate areas in the foster home but after some other pigs moved on we were put in a split cage. It was immediately apparent to our foster mom that we were buddies. We were totally gleeful to be near each other. It's very rare for MGPR to put boys together that were not in the same cage at the shelter. So our foster mom needed a second opinion. She transferred us to another home still in a split cage and that mom saw our deep affection for each other too. So here we are back together again and ready for a true forever home. We do have one small issue. I (Mercury) have soft poos. My behind needs to be checked every few days to be sure things are "moving" right. So we will be happiest on bedding not fleece.

    My favorite place is curled up under my fleece blanket. I am happy to do that in my cage or on your lap. I would love a home with lots of parsley. Could that be with you?

    Some people say I look like a punk rocker with my white mohawk. That suits me because Im kind of a wild man. Im hoping for someone that will help me get out some of my boundless energy with some floor time. Im an expert rumble-strutter and Im very interested in having a friend to show off for, my foster brothers just dont appreciate my talent. Oh, and lots of parsley, its my favorite. Could you be my forever person?

    I can't wait, wait, wait to meet other guinea pigs! I am 'behind bars' at my foster home, desperate to play with the boys here. Where are the girls? People seem good--I like petting and lap time and come to the grids for snacks and 'medicine' in a syringe. No, I'm not on any medicine, but it's good practice in case I ever am. Guess I'm good at all these things because I'm 4 years old and know I want a forever home this time.

    Hello I'm a very sweet and loving little girl. What do you think about my name? It was created by a Neutral Network Generator. A cool lady named Janelle Shane created them for the Portland Guinea Pig Rescue but they said we could use them. I don't really understand what a neutral Network is but I like my name just fine. Anyway if you would like to adopt me for your guinea pig or one of ours I'd be happy to meet you.

    Sex:Male/Female Pair

    Age: 3 Years , 5 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed
    Special Needs:YES

    Hello we are Trula and Sooty. A very nice and attractive pair of guinea pigs if we do say so our selves.There are a few things we need to tell you about but they really are no big deal. I (Trula) have a few things I need to mention. First I have a birth defect. My sternum does not lay flat against my body. It kind of sticks out.So I have this odd lump in my chest but trust me it's just not a problem.Second is I'm a Teddy mix. Some Teddy breed guinea pigs have a few skin issues. Just my luck I got the lump and the skin stuff. That doesn't really bother me either because the nice people at Gorgeous Guineas were able to tell MGPR what to use on me and it has made a big difference. I will probably need an Aloe Melt and a bath about once a month for the rest of my life. I'm very good for both things. I kind of like the melt part a lot. So there will be the added expense of ordering product. It will cost about 22.00 plus shipping for my products but you'll only need to buy them about every 4 months or so. Don't worry once you meet us you will know I am so worth it and Sooty is pretty cute too.

    As you can see from our picture, we are an adorable bonded pair. We are very friendly and love to have human company. We come to the side of our cage to say hello. However, more times than not, it's to let our foster mom know that we are hungry and she isn't speedy enough in delivering our gourmet dinner to us. While we are enjoying our time with our foster mom, we would love to have a forever home. Please consider adopting us and making us part of your family.
