The homeless guinea pig epidemic
There are tons of guinea pigs that need homes. Please look elsewhere for a guinea pig before purchasing from a pet store. Big pet stores sell guinea pigs that come from breeding mills and many are sick and misgendered when purchased. It’s often cheaper to purchase elsewhere than a pet store.
Most guinea pig rescues are always at max capacity and families are always trying to rehome their guinea pigs for various reasons. 100+ guinea pigs each month are posted looking for a new home on Facebook alone in my area… That’s at least 1,200+ guinea pigs each year for a single area. There’s bound to be a pair you like if you know where to look!
