Mad City Cavies is a small local foster-based rescue. We have successfully placed about 70+ piggies between the members of the rescue over the last year. Our mission is to find loving forever homes for each and every one of our fosters. We are fully capable and experienced in caring for sick or pregnant pigs. We are happy to take in surrenders if we have open spots in our foster homes, or can put you on a waitlist for the next available foster home. We are also happy to educate people on the proper care and diet of your new furry family members. We required a signed adoption contract, and we reserve the right to decline adoptions if we feel that you have not met our standards for cage size, care, etc. We almost never have single pigs available, and we try to adopt in pairs. We will adopt a single pig only if it is going to be a companion to a pig you currently own, or the occasional male who just does not get along with other piggies we will allow to go as a single. Occasionally we have c&c cages available to purchase or supplies. 100% of any and all money we receive goes dierectly back into the upkeep and care as well as vet costs of the animals within the rescue. We are working towards non-profit and hope to become so in the spring! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to meet our available fosters!
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!
