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.

    Hello Everyone. Well the two of us have been in rescue a very long time now and we think it's time to move on.

Sadly I Moroccan (AKA Roc) have a bladder stone that is lodged in a place where it can't be removed.The nice people at MGPR have had it X-rayed repeatedly and it just isn't budging. Mean while we have been hanging around the rescue for almost a year.So we are hoping that someone will take a chance on us. Our Veterinarian says she isn't sure it will ever move and we should just get on with the business of finding a forever home. You know a nice lap to curl up on and stuff.So please fill out an application to adopt us today.

    Altered:Neutered

    Hi! I'm a young and energetic little boy who would very much like a forever home and a nice girl pig to spend my life with. Like all very young pigs I require careful handling since I am still wiggly and prone to startle easily. Special care should be taken when I am picked up or put down so I don't leap from your hands and get injured. I am learning to enjoy lap time and will settle down nicely with the attention of my forever family.

You humans are magnificent for paying all this attention to me! I love my Oxbow treats. Who doesnt, right? Also, I like to kiss with my teeth, so my rescue group says only kids 12 and older can be part of my family. Hope to see you at the next adoption meet!

    Name:Favor
    Sex:Female
    Type: Tri-Color/Crested
    Age: 1 Year , 1 Month
    Altered:Spayed
    Special Needs:YES

    Hello My name is Favor and I've had a bit of bad luck in my little life. When I was a little baby (4 months ago) the other guinea pigs at the pet store didn't like me much. They bullied and bit me. I ended up having to have two surgeries and a lot of care. The members of MGPR traveled 100s of miles to take care of me and get me the best veterinary care possible. Then I was still much too small to spay so I needed to be grown a little. Then it became apparent that my digestive system had been messed up by the many months of medications I was on, so that needed to be sorted out. Now I'm ready for a forever home. So I love to sit on my foster moms shoulder to watch TV at night and I'm pretty good at being secretary when she brings me in to the desk to work with her. She say's I'm spoiled rotten but I don't think so. I'm looking for someone that will continue giving me the attention I'm used to and I'll need a nice cage mate too. Please fill out an application to adopt me. I do still have one issue. If I'm stressed like being taken out for public appearances I tend to have soft poos. So I'm going to be a home girl for sure. Trust me I'm worth it.

    Age: 4 Years , 7 Months
    Altered:Neutered/Spayed
    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!

    Altered:Neutered

    Hi there. Well I've had quite a difficult time until I found MGPR. But they have gotten me back on my feet and I'm ready for a new life. I was surrendered to a shelter. The shelter was informed that I was loosing weight. They discovered a lump on my side and decided that I had cancer. They tried as hard as they could but they just couldn't get me to eat on my own. They were ready to euthanize me when MGPR called. When I arrived at MGPR I was a real mess. I couldn't eat, I couldn't lay down, I was in a little ball of pain hunch / fluff. Not only that but I was peeing blood. Right away they got me to one of their vets totally expecting that I was suffering from the dreaded bladder stones. My x-ray was a total surprise and told quite a different story. I had a broken back. I had been left to suffer week after week in terrible pain from an injury that was not disclosed to the shelter. Once they got me on some pain medication and a joint supplement everything changed. Now I am going to need to take a supplement the rest of my life. It's called Fluid Action HA liquid. I take it very nicely for my foster mom. You will also need to handle me a bit gently but aside from that I'm all healed and ready to rock and roll. I do still have my lump but the veterinarian says it's nothing to worry about. I guess we should address my age too. No age was given on my surrender papers. I could be anywhere between three to five. It's hard to tell with me because of the injury.Oh and the pee thing. The doctor thinks that what ever happened to break my back also bruised my kidneys causing the blood, that cleared up too.

    My name is Galaxina but my foster mom (who sees all my guinea pig virtues) calls me Galaxy for short. This is an appropriate nickname as Im certain everyones galaxy must revolve around darling me, does it not? Im a smart, observant little one and nothing goes unnoticed by me so you are best off making sure to keep up the veggies and treats as I am paying attention. I am sleek and solid and love my snacks (who doesnt, right?). I have a cute little crest at the top of my head  which only adds to my natural beauty. I like to be brushed so that I can keep up my guinea pig super model appearance. I hope to visit with you at the next adoption meet!

    Name:Miss Priscilla

    Age: 7 Months
    Altered:Spayed

    I am a very sweet little girl just looking for my forever home. I am curious about my surroundings after I feel safe to come out and play. I love my leafy greens, however, I'm still not sure about vegetables besides carrots; I take a few nibbles out of the peppers & cucumbers I am given. I currently live with a small chatty dog so I know about barking, but it's not my favorite sound.

    I am a wonderful girl looking for a forever home with your boy. I enjoy floor-time and will come out once I know it's safe. My foster mom has a small chatty dog so I am familiar with barking, but I do not like it. I eat all my leafy greens but haven't figured out what veggies I really like. I try a few bites of peppers and cucumbers, but I like carrots.

    You have to admit I have the coolest hair and the coolest name.My coat is extra smooth and silky not at all hard to care for. A nice brushing once a week or so will do me up just fine. I am a bit lonely and I really want to meet a nice girl to settle down with.I lived with a lot of guinea pigs in my last home so being alone is a little scary.

    My name is Tikka. I'm a gentle soul, calm, beautiful, a total love and extremely sweet. I'm not bragging - this is what my foster mom tells me :) I'm shy at first but that's partly because I am living by myself now as my best guinea pig friend recently passed away before I came to MGPR, so I'm missing them. I'll come out of my shell most when I have a special new friend with whom to share my life and veges. I respond to my name and I am calm when sitting on laps. My foster mom tells me I'm a guinea pig with all the checkmarks. I think that must be a good thing! Hope to meet you soon!
