Adopt a Pet the "Guinea Pig Finder Way"

Looking for an adorable pet guinea pig or hopefully two? Adopting is the way to go! At “Guinea Pig Finder," our listings and resources are managed by guinea pig experts and seasoned guinea pig rescuers. Our mission is to give you a smart path in adopting guinea pigs, and to help those needing to rehome their pet guinea pigs. In addition, we try to provide new adopters with a jump start on a happy and healthy relationship with their new pets.

  • Pet Store or Breeder or Adopt?

    Pet Store or Breeder or Adopt?

    Most of us are aware of the horrors of puppy mills, and understand that buying a puppy from a pet store supports the cycle of abusively sordid care and practices that continues behind the scenes. We know that the cute puppy in the store window has come from a bad world. It's the same, only worse, for small pets. Hobby and show breeders contribute to that reality, whether they realize it or not. Find out more...

    Adopting is the responsible way to acquire a pet. Your new pet can best be found from either your local shelter (ASPCA, Humane Society or local animal care and control) or a rescue or a private adoption. Please avoid "free for adoption" animals at a store that also sells pets. Even when pet-selling stores are offering pets for free (to "adopt"), you should not offer your patronage to stores that are continuously breaching the ethics of animal welfare. They simply want you to support their business model: provide you with a pet as cheaply as they can, so that you come back for the profitable supplies and food. Stores typically lose money on the sale of their pet stock. Live pets sold in stores are "loss leaders" -- there only to draw you in and create demand for the rest of the more profitable items. Please shop at stores that do not carry any live animals. We vote for change with our dollars.

  • But, we want YOUNG and HEALTHY and CUTE guinea pigs

    Seriously, have you ever met an uncute guinea pig? We haven't. There are amazingly cute, young and healthy guinea pigs for adoption everywhere. Don't believe for a moment that shelters, rescues and private folks are just rehoming old, not so cute or sickly guinea pigs. That's not the way it works, especially in the small pet world.

    Guinea pigs purchased at pet stores are frequently mis-sexed and/or pregnant! The most common reasons that guinea pigs end up being rehomed are:

    • Kids get bored -- it doesn't take long, 6 months on average, even for most of the "my angel wants to be a vet" variety
    • Impulse purchase -- of a caged animal, without understanding their proper care requirements and commitment
    • Unexpected babies -- unknowingly "buying" a pregnant female or mis-sexed guinea pigs; an accidental pairing

    Generally speaking, guinea pigs adopted from your local shelter or rescue are healthier than pet store guinea pigs. They've been well cared for, properly sexed, are not pregnant and are vet-checked. Many pet store guinea pigs are afflicted with mites, upper respiratory infections and more. These can be serious problems that are usually not apparent from a quick inspection in the store. Guinea pig adoption is the way to go. Don't fund the pet mills.

  • But we want babies!

    There are plenty of babies and pregnant moms in the rehoming cycle. Babies are not necessarily a great choice for a prospective guinea pig caretaker. You don't know their personality yet, some are more social than others and it takes time for that to surface. Babies don't stay babies for very long. In a couple of short months, they are going to be turning into young adults. Babies may require extra baby-proofing precautions for your cage and accessories. Babies can be harder to sex thereby increasing the chance of ending up with a lot more babies, headaches and expense. For a family with children, we strongly encourage you to adopt a pair of bonded adults (roughly 9 months and older) and avoid the potential challenges of guinea pig adolescence.

  • Success Breeds Success

    The more the Guinea Pig Finder site grows, the better the odds are of someone finding a wonderful guinea pig to adopt in their area. Sharing is caring when it comes to pets. Guinea Pig Finder gives you simple and amazing tools to help you promote guinea pigs for adoption. Whether it's for your own guinea pig, or you want to participate in our new (coming soon!) tools for helping to promote your favorite rescue (or all guinea pigs in your area or worldwide!), we provide multiple ways to help and to share. 

  • Is your Guinea Pig for Sale?

    If you have not intentionally bred your guinea pig and you are not a breeder, then we warmly invite you to list your guinea pigs for adoption here on Guinea Pig Finder. It's super easy and it's a fantastic resource to aid you in finding a great adopter. Breeders are not allowed to list their animals on this site. If you intentionally bred your guinea pig to "teach your children the birds and the bees," for example, you may not consider yourself a breeder, but you are. Rescues, shelters and private parties that have guinea pigs for "adoption" are invited and welcome members of the Guinea Pig Finder community!
