We are currently taking a limited number of owner surrenders. Preference will be given to babies 3 weeks to 2 months and pregnant and nursing females. Each surrender will be considered on a case by case basis.
As of January 1, 2011, we have taken in and placed over 1275 Guinea Pigs. We only accept guinea pigs. Many of them had been abandoned at the local animal shelters or pet shops. Most were pets bought for children who eventually lost interest in them well before the end of their 5-8 year (or longer) lifetime. Due to this problem we will adopt as pets for children (over 6) ONLY if an adult is equally interested and realizes that the responsibility for this animal will ultimately be the adults. Many of our animals are adopted as pets for adults.
