We are so thankful that you have decided to adopt guinea pigs from us at Guinea Pigs of Southwest Florida. Check out our Available for Adoption page to see which guinea pigs are currently looking for their forever home! Our application form is below, but please read about our requirements and some other important information prior to applying with us to adopt!
1. PROPER CAGE SIZE: Guinea pigs require quite a bit of space to explore and live a healthy, happy life. Prior to adoption, we require that you have a cage with a minimum of 2' x 4' (8 sq ft total) such as the Midwest Guinea Habitat or a custom C&C cage. Please visit our education page for more information on the proper cage sizes.
2. MULTIPLE GUINEA PIGS: Guinea pigs are herd animals by nature. Although they might enjoy the company of their humans they will thrive and be happiest with a companion of their own kind. We only adopt out pairs or bond a single with an already existing single piggie. We however do not adopt single piggies to live on their own in most cases. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A GUINEA PIG OR GUINEA PIGS THEN YOU MUST BRING THE ANIMAL(S) WITH YOU. NOT ALL GUINEA PIGS GET ALONG SO WE WILL HAVE SOME SUPERVISED "PLAY DATES" TO MAKE SURE YOU GO HOME WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE MATCH. IF YOU DON'T BRING YOUR PIG(S) THEN WE WILL HAVE TO RESCHEDULE YOUR ADOPTION.
