Who We Are
Adopt A Guinea Pig is dedicated to saving the lives of Guinea Pigs through adoption. We are100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We believe every Guinea Pig deserves a chance at a forever home, and we aim to make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, one Guinea Pig at a time.
Our Volunteers have taken care of over 1,000 Guinea Pigs
Did you know that the average Guinea Pig needs 365 Cups of fruit & Vegetable per year.
Guinea Pigs can drink from water bows or water bottles.
Smaller animals are just as prone to illness as larger ones, and guinea pigs are certainly no exception. Make sure your precious guinea pig sees the veterinarian for a thorough checkup at least once per year.
We are thankful for our partners that help us complete our mission.
Adopt A Guinea Pig Rescues Guinea Pigs that in need of a new home. Our organization has rescued over thousands of Guinea Pigs. We work with other shelters and organizations as well individuals who are in need of our services.

Why We Need You
Choose to change the world for homeless pets
Welcome and thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Adopt A Guinea Pig. We are very grateful for your support. There are few things as rewarding as helping a homeless animal find a new home. When you volunteer at the AAGP, you make a difference for homeless animals AND the people choosing to adopt them.
Volunteering can take a variety of forms. From serving as an ambassador spreading awareness in the community, to providing enrichment and socialization for an animal, to training other volunteers on how to support our mission, volunteer team members give their time and talent to change the lives of thousands of pets each year. We could not do what we do without you, and we have unmet needs waiting for more talented volunteers to help us fulfill our mission!
Learn About Fostering
The goal of the foster programs is to provide a home environment for pets who need special attention or a break from the shelter. Some pets may need a temporary home for a few days, while others may need a few months. Fill Out the Foster Application For More Details.
We have a Unique Program for Kids. If you want to learn more check out the Kid Rewards Foster Program.
