Meet Spud

Meet Spud!

Spud is a very young male guinea pig who came to us in June 2022 after being surrendered as a baby to a local pet store. He is currently a single guinea pig who is looking for a match.

For those who may now know, guinea pigs are highly social herd animals and not having a piggy-friend is highly detrimental to them. As much as we love them, and as dedicated as we may be as owners, we as humans can never be an adequate substitute for another of their own kind.

We do not know why Spud was surrendered but we can say it is likely due to his behavior. Spud is an extremely anxious and fearful piggy. While piggies can be good choices as pets for older children, we have marked Spud as "not good with kids" due to his extreme anxiety and listed him as a special needs piggy.

Small Pet Safe House does not adopt out single guinea pigs. The single pigs we have are available to adopt if the adopter has a single pig currently and the pigs are able to successfully bond.

Spud is available as a special needs adoption or foster pig.
