Please note that there is a required minimum adoption donation of $30 for one, $50 for a pair, and $60 for a trio, as rescuing animals properly is an expensive endeavor. If spay or neuter procedure is needed prior to adoption, the cost of adopting one guinea pig is minimum $75.
It costs substantial amounts of money to provide the extensive care (day-to-day care, medications, emergency veterinary care, etc.) which most Guinea Pigs need after we rescue them.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS BELOW CAREFULLY. IF YOU CAN SEE YOURSELF RELINQUISHING A PET FOR ANY OF THESE REASONS, PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER ADOPTING A PET. PLEASE CHECK EACH BOX PROVING YOU HAVE READ AND DO NOT CONSIDER ANY OF THESE AN ISSUE:
