Pickles lost her partner, Tink in April. She is now finding companionship with Ethan.


Most adoptions take place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and require traveling to us. Some pair adoptions can take place in the Lafayette area.

Adoption Fees:

$30 for a single unaltered guinea pig

$35 for a single neutered male

$50 for a pair

$70 for a trio

We have a two pig policy. We will not allow the adoption of a single pig to be a single pet.

Not all of our male guinea pigs are neutered, but can be done for an additional cost. We do not spay females unless there is a medical need.

Guinea pigs listed as two or three names are established pairs or trios and separation is not available unless indicated in the description.

Guinea pigs with hold by their name are not currently available for adoption due to a medical reason but will eventually be ready.

Guinea pigs with pending by their names are pending adoption but the adoption has not been finalized yet or they are on a trial run with an adopter. 

Age listings: Baby 0-6 months, Young 6-12 months, Adult 1-5 years, Senior 5+ years.

Please check out our website
 for an adoption application as well as the adoption process. All adoptions and communications begin with the application. It helps us to assess where you are at in the process of finding a pet right for you and/or your family. Our goal is not to judge but to educate and determine if guinea pigs are the right fit for you.

The cage is the most important part of your pigs' environment so the roomier the better. Diet should be 80% high quality Timothy Hay (or Orchard Grass) and 20% high quality pellets/fresh veggies as well as fresh water daily. Our pigs are fed Oxbow products. Guinea pigs are a social, herd animal and are healthier and happier in pairs or trios. 

MHRR is now offering pre-assembled 4x2 C&C (size is 28"x 56") cages for $85.00. Accessories not included. Cages are built upon request and need at least a week's notice.
