TIP OF THE WEEK
Would your class or organization like to have an educational session on guinea pigs? Contact us!
We can discuss proper cages, diet, answer questions about guinea pigs and explain the importance of adopting. *Depending on availability, we can also bring a pig or two for hands-on experience.
*Only if we have pigs with a calm demeanor who won’t become stressed at an event of this nature.
Since 2008 Atlanta Metro Guinea Pig Rescue has helped find homes for over 400 guinea pigs. We have provided sanctuary to those too old or ill to be adopted out.
Without the help of foster homes and generous donations, we would not be able to continue our work. Find out how you can assist us with our education, rescue, and rehabilitation efforts.
The best way to help us is to get the word out...adoption over shopping.
Our pigs have been to the vet, correct gender determined, socialized, and paired up if appropriate.
We provide an adoption packet with helpful and accurate information needed to get you started and we are there for you when you have questions or concerns with your new family members.

"But the pet store sells them..."
Keep in mind, pet stores are about the bottom line. Question and research everything before making a purchase. This includes (but not limited to) food, treats, toys and hideys. They sell things that are not the best choices for all species, but we are going to focus on guinea pig things.

Work with members in your community and make a difference
At this time we are not accepting private surrenders. Please find other avenues to rehome your family members, if that is the last resort. Here are sites where you can list your pigs: Guinea Pig Zone and Guinea Lynx. Please charge a substantial adoption fee to weed out those not serious and research questions asked by rescues. Come up with your own list to make sure your pets are getting the best possible home you can find for them.
