Small Animals for Adoption

R2D2 and C3PO

These ARE the droids you’re looking for! R2D2 (brown and white) and C3PO (black and white) are two adorable piggies who like to chase each other around and hang out in their igloos. Whenever they hear the sound of the fridge door opening, they come right to the front of the cage, excited to munch on their favorite veggies. They enjoy the company of human friends and of each other, but it’s important that they each have their own home base (like an igloo or hidey hut) where they can decompress after a long day of being guinea pigs. They love to get playtime in our playpen, and have been excellent listeners for our guinea pig reading program! With time, R2D2 and C3PO will be out of this world companions!

Age: both about 1 year old

Bert & Ernie

Meet Bert and Ernie, the adorable duo that proves opposites really do attract. Bert is reserved and shy but opens up when offered his favorite veggies. Ernie is confident and friendly with just about everyone. He also enjoys supervised visits with well-mannered dogs. Ernie is quick to explore his surroundings and will come up to greet his human friends.

Guinea Pigs are social animals and Bert and Ernie really enjoy each other’s company. The best part about adopting a bonded pair is that the hard work is already done for you!

Bert and Ernie would love to cuddle with each other in your home.
