Meet Wanda and Betty

Betty (Abyssinian) and Wanda (American) were rescued separately from the city shelter where they were surrendered by their previous families. Betty arrived first, and was surrendered alone. It is impossible to know what her past was like, but it points to a sad and lonely life. Upon arrival, Betty was extremely nervous around humans, running away when people approached her, and even screaming the first few times she was picked up. She was thin and her nails were overgrown, and she seemed overwhelmed by her new large enclosure and sounds of other guinea pigs. However, with time Betty began to open up and accept attention from humans. She also became more comfortable being around other guinea pigs, and began to make friends with other piggies at her foster home.

Wanda arrived with two other girls, who were adopted separately. She was the more outgoing and curious of the group, and quickly adjusted to her new routine and made friends with humans, guinea pigs, and cats alike. Wanda became friends with Betty, and now they are looking for a loving family to continue showing them just how wonderful a forever home can be! They enjoy exploring their playpen during playtime, spending time with humans and other guinea pigs, and eating all kinds of delicious greens and veggies. Wanda loves being held and petted on the head, and she will even fall asleep while being touched,

Betty and Wanda are approximately 1.5 years old, and ready for their new life to begin. They would prefer a home with either no children, or older and respectful ones. If interested in adopting this duo, get in touch! Email

*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.
