    Looking for new pigs

    Does anyone have recommendations for apps to find Guinea pigs in need of rehousing? For all my previous pigs I have used apps like gumtree etc to collect pigs that people didn’t want or couldn’t keep anymore. I am looking for 3 or 2 bonded sows as I have recently lost both my boars. Thank you!

    Cagemate passed away - adoption/rehoming options?

    Bonding Males - not bad, but not great?

    We adopted a guineapig and she ended up pregnant with a little boy. So we are attempting to find a bond for him. We neutered him and turns out he is clearly has only child syndrome and seems to be pretty opinionated. He got along with all but one girl and bullied her to the point he needed...

    Feeling immense guilt over new adoption

    Hello everyone. Recently, one of my beloved sows passed away very suddenly. Her companions, who are both quite young (<6 months) were as distraught as I was. I checked everywhere for a sow needing a home in order to help with the bereavement, but none of the rescues in my province had any pigs...

    Ethical Angst over Time between Adoptions :(

    Hello everyone, I am incredibly thrilled to adopt my first guinea pigs! Although I haven't owned cavies yet, I've done quite a bit of research and feel as ready as I'll ever be. My only question is this: I would love to rehome a lone boar from CL, neuter him, than place him with a pair of one...

    Hay Allergy?

    Hi y'all, I recently have been planning to adopt a guinea from Petsmart. For those who don't know how this works, usually Petsmart will give up their pets for adoption for free, if they are no longer resell-able. The little ones may be ill or they were returned from previous owners. In my case...
