Due to COVID-19 restrictions, adoption of guinea pigs is available only for pairs already chosen from
and collected from the foster carer's house. We ask that adopters limit the number of people collecting the guinea pigs and maintain safe social distancing at all times.
Some foster carers are stocking Pig'n'Mix, hay and other accessories at their homes for sale under the same restrictions. Click
for details of locations and available items.
Please note, our guinea pigs are adopted to
indoor homes only
. We also have cages available at various locations. If you are intending to purchase or make your own housing, we recommend that you contact us first so we can let you know what is required to meet minimum RSPCA recommended standards.
