We have guinea pigs of all ages and coat types available for adoption, in single-sex or mixed (female/neutered male) pairs. Single pigs are only adopted to households with one or more existing piggies.
We require completion of an Adoption Application, including vet reference if applicable, and an Adoption Contract. Our adoption fee is $25 per piggie, which goes back to the rescue.
We accept owner surrenders when space allows, although we give precedence to shelter transfers. Shelters we work with include Hamilton Animal Control, Toronto Animal Services and Montreal SPCA.
Our piggies are cared for at our premises in Markham, and in foster homes from Niagara to Oshawa, and Newmarket to downtown Toronto.
Contact us for adoptions, surrenders and advice on any aspect of guinea pig care.
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.
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!
