Our Mission

PeanutButterPigs Guinea Pig Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of guinea pigs in Brazoria County, TX, and the greater Houston area. Our mission is to create a safe and loving environment for every guinea pig that joins our rescue and to ensure they find a forever home where they will be cherished even more than they are with us!

Adoption Policy

We are committed to ensuring our guinea pigs find the perfect home and are a great fit for your family! Each guinea pig is unique, with its own personality, so please take the time to carefully review their pet profile to ensure the piggy you’re interested in is the right match for your household.

Located in Angleton, TX, our facility is open by appointment only. We do not offer drop-off or shipping services for animals. Please ensure you are within driving distance of our town.

To ensure the safety and well-being of the guinea pig you welcome into your home, we have specific requirements. Please read these before starting your adoption application:

- We do not adopt out guinea pigs as gifts and are not open for adoption during the holidays.

- All homes must have a proper cage to house your new guinea pig; no aquariums or pet store cages. Female guinea pigs must be housed in a 2x4 cage or larger, and males must be housed in a 2x5 or larger. If you do not have a cage yet, you must show proof of purchase of a cage we approve before adoption.

- If your household has large pets or small children, you must show proof of proper safety measures in place prior to adoption, including the cage being out of reach.

- We do not adopt small animals to children but to families. An adult must sign the adoption contract. Applicants under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian apply on their behalf.

Cancellation policy: We understand that sometimes emergencies happen or you change your mind. If you do not intend to keep your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours' notice. Cancellations with less than 24 hours' notice are subject to a cancellation fee to compensate the volunteer for the time spent preparing for your visit.

Hold policy: We allow holds for guinea pigs up to a week in advance for pick-up. You must schedule a pick-up date and place a non-refundable deposit of at least 25% of the adoption fee. You will be allowed two reschedules before your hold is deemed invalid.

The adoption fee for guinea pigs is $25.
