Meet Brie and Nicky

Brie and Nicky came to us after being surrendered by their previous guardians to a city kill shelter. As almost none information was given during their surrender, we will never know with certainty what happened in their previous home, what their living conditions were, or how young their daily caretakers were. The girls came to us timid, but are slowly adjusting and accepting their new caretaker and foster parent.

Brie is an American Guinea Pig cream and white colored. Although more shy with humans then her sister Nicky is, Brie loves to explore, and would like noting more then to have free access to all the home’s floor and closet space, so she can play out her adventures. She is learning to trust and take food from her foster mom’s hand, and is learning to enjoy being groomed and cared for.

Nicky, the Crested Guinea Pig, is calico colored. She is a prankster, loves playing with her food bowl, and watching her foster mom flip it the right way over and over. If not flipped fully, she will balance her front paws on it, and just play the edge of falling down. Plate spinning acrobats have noting on young miss Nicky! She also has the loudest piggy wheek we heard in a long time, and she hopes to one day be admired for both her vocal and balancing abilities on a global Insta scale.

Both Brie and Nicky are around a year old, and are in good health according to our vet.
If interested in meeting and adopting this dynamic duo, reach out to for adoption info, and to schedule a time for a visit.

*Please note- Guinea pigs are incredibly social creatures that thrive in pairs or groups, and we never really know about their true personalities until they are living among other members of their species. Empty Cages aims to respect their natural bonds, so we only adopt guinea pigs in pairs, or to homes that already have one or more.

**During an adoption with Empty Cages Collective, you will get an orientation on guinea pig handling, diet, care, appropriate enclosures, and out of cage space/time needed. If you already have one guinea pig, he/she will have an opportunity to meet the possible mate(s), so you can see first hand how they will get along. Our adoption coordination will also assist you with information on how to continue with the introductions, what to expect, and what is a realistic timeframe for complete bonding.
