Guinea pigs can be shy creatures, but with some love and yummy food they can become bold and full of character! When Junior hears you opening his bag of pellets, or cutting his veggies, he will show his excitement with the most adorable little squeaking noise to show he is hungry!

He also likes to hide out in his hideaways. He does well with being picked up (once you catch him!) and will let you give him gentle head scratches while you feed him some delicious greens. He’s becoming more comfortable with handling every day!

We are proud to have teamed up with One Tail at a Time, fostering small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs until they find their permanent loving homes.

From One Tail at a Time:


End pet homelessness by making pet ownership a joyful and accessible experience for all.
We accomplish this by rescuing animals from overcrowded shelters, placing them in loving forever homes and providing support and resources to pet owners in need.


Compassion for all animals and the people who care for them. We aim to foster a non-judgmental environment to build bridges and relationships with our community to help keep pets out of the shelter and in the homes where they are loved.
Community engagement and participation in all our programs. We aim to empower our community to be the change they want to see and rely on our volunteers to provide daily care in foster homes and our facilities.
Vulnerable populations are a priority for rescue and support. We aim to deliver programs focused on finding the most vulnerable populations of animals including big dogs, senior dogs, sick dogs, parvo puppies, pitbulls and neonate kittens, and delivering solutions to help them live and be loved.
Progress and growth every day. We aim to consistently be on the front lines of progressive policies and programming in the animal welfare community, knowing that change is made by taking risks, challenging the standard and always thinking differently.
