Rehoming because

Our family pet guinea pig recently gave birth to 5 babies. Unfortunately, we don't have enough space or resources to keep all of the guinea pigs, so we are keeping the father and three babies.

Pepper is two years old. She is loving, but shy. It will take her a while to settle in to a new home. At first, she doesn't like to engage in lap or playtime, but after she gets to trust you those are some of her favorite activities. She loves to chew on apple sticks. She very rarely bites, and is used to children but is especially sensitive to loud noises. Pepper is not spayed, and she recently had five pups. We've waited five weeks to rehome Pepper. Pepper will need a very loving and caring home, as she requires lots of love and affection. She hates having her paws touched or her belly rubbed, but she loves a good scratch behind the ears. She is not playful, but loves to sit in your lap and, if you have long hair, she likes to fall asleep on your shoulders. All in all, Pepper is very loving, and I am hoping very desperately that she goes to a good, loving home.

Can you SHIP?

Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.

But I want THAT one!

Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
