Adoption Hero


Introducing Jorge, a loving guinea pig in search of a caring home. Recently separated from his buddy, Jorge is slowly coming out of his shell. This gentle soul is longing for companionship and a patient owner who can help him rebuild trust.

He might be shy at first but will come out if you have a yummy treat on hand, stay quiet and move slowly, because lettuce is one of his favorite snacks! Jorge is making huge strides in foster care and showing his foster dad just how sweet he can be. He's got a budding curiosity, which is really helping to prove to this piggy pal that humans really are pretty cool.

If you're looking to provide a loving environment and possibly have room for a new friendship in your home, please consider adopting Jorge!


Guinea pigs require a minimum pen size is 36"L x 24"W x 18"H which provides room for running, possibly climbing multiple levels, foraging, hiding, food, water, a hay box, and possibly a litter box. Cage bottoms should be solid, rather than wire, to prevent painful foot ulcers. To keep your piggy happy and healthy, provide environmental enrichments, such as tunnels, chewing and foraging activities. Keep them in a social area of the house but away from kitchen fumes/smells, loudspeakers, and direct sunlight. Guinea pigs' teeth are constantly growing and are kept worn by chewing hay, so always provide unlimited amounts of hay.
