Piggy Info

Our Story

AMGPR is a small rescue founded in December 2008, when the only other rescue in the area closed its doors. Since that time, the rescue has placed over 200 guinea pigs in forever homes! But, this is clearly not enough. So many pigs are turned away due to lack of space. The rescue itself can only house 5 to 6, and four foster homes can house up to 10 guinea pigs. Because of our limited space, we encourage owners to surrender and foster their pigs until a suitable home can be found for them. Currently, we are in need of foster homes to increase the numbers of pigs we can take in. AMGPR is run solely on donations and volunteers.

2 male guinea pigs looking for good home

I have 2 male guinea pigs that need a good home. They come with a 8sq ft open cage each, water bottles, huts and supplies for a month.They are 3 years old, have not been neutered because they are in separate cages but close together with cable ties joining the cage together, so 16 sq ft of cage space all together.
They have been well looked after, just not the right pet for our family, my kids don't interact with them all we do is feed them and clean, keep them in good condition and safe from harm.
I separated the brothers when I senses some aggression but did not know enough about them to know for sure if they were being territorial or not. I am not sure how they will bond. They don't bite, still a little skittish but have nice natures.

Info on Yorki??

Hi Michael. Do you still have Yorki? I am looking for a friend to accompany my adult male right now. He is lonely. Do you think Yorki would bond with another male guinea. Mine is not neutered. Is Yorki? I would like more info on him if you think the situation is appropriate for him. Thanks.

Two Female Guinea Pigs Need A Loving Home

I have two precious beautiful guinea pigs needing a loving and nurturing home. The owner is unable to care for them due to a change in their work schedule. They are female, and both have not reached a year old yet. Their names are Paris and Caramel. Pictures will come soon.

Owner's reply

There is a place on GPZ to list your pigs. The rescue area is not the place to do it. Any one that is interested, please know these pigs are not part of our rescue. We can't verify the sex or health of any pigs listed here.

Guinea Pig In Need Of Rescue

Hello my name is Anecia Clark. I have a guinea pig named Rollsvelt in
need of a good home. I have moved into a new residence and they do not
allow small animals. I was inquiring if there is any way you guys
could help me find a good place for him. He's over a year old and a
really sweet boy. He has a cage and a bowl and he's litter pan
trained. If you guys could rescue him or let me know of any other
options it will be very much obliged.

Owner's reply

Anecia I have responded to your emails a couple of times. Please check your spam folders if you are not receiving them. There is a place on this site under the Guinea Pig Directory to list your pigs yourself. If you are having trouble I'm sure the site owner can help.

foster

I am interested in helping out where I can. I have always like guinea pigs and think they really get a raw deal in life often sold to neglectful children as first pets. I would be willing to foster. If you are still in need please email.

Gary

Gary, I do not have your email but please email me at the address at the top of the page so we can futher discuss fostering.

looking to adopt a guinea pig

Hi my name is Heather. I am looking to adopt a male guinea pig to be a buddy for my male guinea pig. I bought the one I have now from a pet store, but I have decided that it is best to adopt one that needs a home from a rescue. When I bought Tyce(my guinea pig) I bought 2 but one acted sick within two days of having him so I took him to 2 different vets because the first one did not know what was wrong with him. I found out that he had pneumonia and the vet put him on antibiotics but he did not make it. He only lived for a week after I bought him so I made the decision to wait on getting another one because I wanted to make sure that Tyce was healthy and did not infect another guinea pig. It has been 4 months now and he is just as healthy as ever so I think it is time to find him a friend. We have a C&C cage and everything we need so my question is how do I go about adopting one from there? Also do you have any males avalable for adoption? My email is nicole4a3@yahoo.com and my number is 423-322-0708 just incase :)

2 young, Female Guinea Pigs need good, new home.....W.Ga./Ala. area

I have 2 young (under 2 yrs old) Female guinea pigs that need a good, new home. They are healthy and happy but our cats get into their room where their cage is kept and intimidate them on occasion, and I think they would do better in a cat free home. Aurora is cinnamon in color and Sushi is a tri colored blk/wht/cinnamon. They are very sweet and love their veggies! They will come with their big cage, equipped with feeding bowl, water dispenser and hiding igloo. Email me for pics. dprgenie@aol.com

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!

Need help finding one or two?

We can help you. Take a look here for some great links and suggestions. And if you still need help with your search, check that page to reach out to us for some specific assistance. Volunteers are standing by willing to help you!
