Currently we cannot take in any surrenders due to the number of piggies we have.
You can try in our group on Facebook - Guinea Pigs of New England - to see if anyone can help with rehoming though.
We are doing our best to deal with the number of piggies and hopefully we’ll be able to take in surrenders again soon. For now, we must focus on finding homes for the hundreds of piggies already here.
Thank you 😊
It's always sad when life makes us give up our pets. We strive to keep all the piggies healthy, happy and re-homed.
Here, our piggies are very happy and healthy. They get to enjoy playtime, fresh fruits and veggies, and the companionship of the other piggies. We only adopt out to the best homes and are very strict when it comes to adopting out. We require that families spend at least 30 minutes here in the sanctuary. They are also required to send at least one picture each week for the first month. Most families send us pictures forever though. :) If you follow us on FaceBook you'll see when he goes up for adoption, when he's adopted, and all pictures from the adoptive family.
We work with other rescues too so we will gladly take your piggy and we'll find them a great forever home. Age doesn't matter here. We get families of all types looking for different piggies. If the other rescues are closer though, please check them out. They are all great. Live & Let Live Farm (Chichester, NH) and Ocean State Guinea Pig Rescue (Ashaway, RI) are the rescues we work with currently.
We do not ask for a surrender fee however a donation would be greatly appreciated, to help with the initial vet check up (it’s $80 per piggy) but whatever you can give is fine - we also ask for the cage and supplies. It makes it easier to take in piggies that come with something. You'll get to see the sanctuary and meet all the piggies. We have quite a few of our own who are permanent residents here also. It's a silly place ;)
We do surrenders by appointment only. Just send us a message and we'll let you know when the next available appointment is. Please note that we are getting SLAMMED with surrenders so there is currently a waiting list. We are doing our best to accommodate everyone but the amount of piggies coming in is staggering.
Please don't worry because you are doing the best thing you can for your piggy ~ giving them the chance to truly be happy and loved <3
