Meet Millie and Maggie.

This gorgeous little ladies arrived at the shelter together.  They weren't getting along with the other animal in the home. Millie and Maggie are bonded and will need to find a home together. They are both quite friendly but like most GPs, they will need help working on socialization and handling. In order to adopt the shelter staff will need to see a photo of the cage they will be living in before you take them home.

Guinea pigs can make great companions for both first-time or experienced pet owners. Every guinea pig has a unique personality and can provide you with hours of joy and love. They are charming and talkitive little animals! Given that they are prey animals, guinea pigs require time, patience and a gentle hand. Once they are comfortable with you and their new surroundings, their personalities really shine! Just like any other pet, guinea pigs require a lot of care and attention. It is important to familiarize yourself with their daily and long-term needs before adding one to your family.

Millie and Maggie are 2 years, 7 months old and are unaltered females.  Millie in the upper picture and Maggie is in the lower part of the photo.
