Adoption, Education

Need to surrender?
Cavy Care Inc. does take surrenders as space permits. At this posting 01/30/24, guinea pigs are being surrendered in record numbers to area shelters, rescue, and open-door facilities. The reason for this is we are speculating that it is the result of post-pandemic and the increasing recession. But...nobody is adopting, and guinea pigs are spending longer time in facilities for this reason. Many facilities have no more space and are not accepting guinea pigs for this reason. You may need to call around to find availability.

We specialize in older, or special needs guinea pigs. These guinea pigs are guinea pigs that would not have done well in a commercial facility or shelter.  Most are already paired, and most are over 4–5 years of age. These are guinea pigs that are not suitable for adoption for children.
Buying is no excuse, shelters, rescue, and drop-in facilities are overloaded and therefore in need of your help to open space and prevent unnecessary euthanasia of healthy animals. Purchasing from a pet store is just making things worse.
