I run a small home run private Guinea Pig rescue in Auckland, I can only take in so much piggies at one time. If anyone living in Auckland would like to help me out and become a foster home feel free to speak to me via email.
I do not pay for the animals I take in as so much of my money goes into caring for the guinea pigs who come into my care that I could not keep doing what I do if I had to pay for them. When I get surrendered the Guinea Pig(s) they will go into quarantine for 3 weeks, if they are sick or show unusual signs they will be looked after and cared for, they will stay in quarantine until they are 110% healthy.
I put them up for adoption to good approved homes only.
I am flexible on them living indoors or outdoors as in New Zealand we have a rather safe outdoor environment, BUT if it has special needs (eg. Long haired, or has a life time sickness that must have an eye kept on it) then I will not allow it to be adopt out to be living outdoors; I will need to approve the hutch or outside cage you will be keep it/them in.
*I require a surrender form to be filled in and an adoption form to be filled in*
I will not adopt out any of my pigs if they are going to be used for Breeding or Showing.
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!
