Guinea Pig Dating

If you have a bereaved guinea pig also visit our bereaved guineapig page for advice.

1:Single or Pair ???

Do not take any notice of large national pet retailers who tell you that single guinea pigs or agressive guinea pigs need to live alone !!

Guinea Pigs are naturally gentle animals and may just need some rehabilitation or have teenage hormones,they are not naturally aggressive.

Like humans its just a matter of finding the right partner of the right age.

Guinea pigs are very social animals and love company,therefore as a reputable rescue we only rehome in pairs or a single to live with an exisiting guinea pig.

Imagine sitting in your home all day with no one to talk too,day after day......

Who does it talk to when your at work,out with your family,chatting with your friends ?

Who can it cuddle too when its feeling unwell or cold in the winter ?

Who does it play with when its sitting in its cage all day waiting for you too come home ?

Who can it smell and nuzzle when it wants some comfort ?

Makes you think doesnt please always buy a pair !!!
