The EHS is also not affiliated with the City of Edmonton’s Animal Control Services (City Pound). We do however, have an agreement with that City department to take in adoptable strays that are turned over to that group, and then we find them homes.
The EHS is great with cats, dogs, rabbits and lots of other pets. Guinea pigs are some what properly cared for. I just wish they would at the very least neuter their males.
I've adopted three guinea pigs from here and have never had any issue. Though they will make you watch a video that has NOTHING to do with guinea pigs, the staff is very friendly.
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!
