Who We Are
We are a group of rescuers and fosterers of guinea pigs in the MD/DC/SoPa/NoVa area. We rescue only from local shelters and do not take in owner give-ups for any reason. We always have lots of guinea pigs available for adoption.
Please note that we do NOT 'ship' guinea pigs!
Local area adoptions only please, or email us if you want to drive to us for a visit and possible adoption.
Our adoption fees are as follows: $70 for females and $55 for males. We require you to sign an adoption contract which covers all of the basics: proper care, vet care standards, relinquishing your adopted piggie should you no longer be able to provide proper care. All of our guinea pigs are spayed/neutered, and have been to a vet
for a checkup. The adoption fee helps to cover only a portion of these costs. Also, please note that you must be an adult head of household to apply for adoption. If you are interested in adopting, please look for more information and fill out our online adoption application at
