Advice when adopting a new Guinea Pig
Its great that you are interested in adopting a pet, but please read the following advice beforehand :
- Read our detailed Information guide about rodents for potential new rodent owners.
- Please consider your personal circumstances before you make the decision to adopt a pet. Most pets in rescue centres have had at least one previous home, and therefore it is important that their next owner can give them a home for life.

- Can you afford the costs of keeping the pet? As well as unexpected veterinarian bills? Including food and vaccinations?
- Do you have the time to spend with the pet, including grooming? Remember, some pets may come with behaviour problems? And some pets have longer coats that need more attention?
- What will you do with your pet when you go on holiday?
