Breeding Guinea Pigs is not something to be taken lightly, pregnant Guinea Pigs need care and attention and babies need loving forever homes.
There are many unwanted Guinea Pigs bred by irresponsible hobby breeders who, have not taken into account these vital requirements resulting in rescues picking up the pieces, when it all goes wrong.
Retail selling is also an issue, its easy for the public to shop on a whim,without thinking of the consequences.A thorough adoption process gives people time to consider if Guinea Pigs are really the pet for them.
Please do not breed Guinea Pigs, there are enough unwanted for the foreseeable future !!
We were recently involved with a large rescue involving 285 Guinea Pigs,breeding which had got out of control,it starts small but can quickly overwhelm people !!
