Accepted forms of payment
Please note that we will never adopt out a pregnant sow, babies not mature enough to be weaned, unhealthy, or injured guinea pig intentionally. We take great care in our fosters well being and want to prevent any problems that can be imperative to their health and happiness. We also are very diligent in sexing our guinea pigs correctly unlike many pet stores to ensure you are indeed getting the correct gender and eliminate to possibility of accidentally placing with an opposite sex guinea pig causing pregnancy. We rarely make any mistakes when approving guinea pigs for adoption, but please know that human error can occur and we will work with you to resolve any issues. We will not pay for vet bills but will offer a refund or an exchange for another guinea pig should any of the above issues arise. If injury or health issue occurs after adoption, we are not held responsible and will not be able to honor a refund or exchange. Should you decide you no longer want your guinea pig due to getting pregnant, illness, injury, disability, etc. please visit our surrender page or contact us for additional information. We will always take in a guinea pig(s).
