Bishop Animal Shelter S.P.C.A. of Manatee County, FL Inc. is a privately funded nonprofit organization.

It is a no-kill adoption facility that is dedicated to finding homes for cats, dogs, small animals, and birds. 

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." - Mahatma Gandhi 

To promote the compassionate treatment of companion animals in Manatee County and surrounding areas through progressive leadership, collaboration, and education. 

We believe that every healthy, treatable, or rehabilitatable animal deserves to be given a chance to find a loving home. We believe that every animal deserves the Five Freedoms. 

  1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst by ready access to fresh water and diet to maintain health and vigor. 
  2. Freedom from Discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. 
  3. Freedom from Pain, Injury, or Disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment 
  4. Freedom to Express Normal Behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind. 
  5. Freedom from Fear and Distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering. 

A no-kill community in which all companion animals are treated with respect and compassion.

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!
