Here at Wheektown we take our adoption process very seriously. New homes are expected to have a minimum care that is equivalent to or better than the care they already receive at the shelter. This means a loving indoor home with enough space to run around, a suitable diet, adequate health care, and owners that know how to look after them properly. For more information on our adoption requirements, please see our FAQ.
If you are adopting long-distance, only established pairs (or trios) are available. Unfortunately as there is no way to ensure our guinea pigs are compatible with yours, we cannot adopt out single guinea pigs as companions for your existing pig(s) if you are unable to physically come into the shelter. If there are two single guinea pigs you are interested in, we can attempt to pair them for you to adopt together.
