Cavy House Guinea Pigs 
Available For Adoption


Males or Females? Which Should I Get?

Many people come to us requesting females, because they’ve read that all males fight and all females get along. This simply isn’t true.  Yes - some males will fight, but so will some females. Adolescent males can be a bit of a challenge, but almost all of the pairs we’ve adopted out get through their adolescence with only minor squabbles.  Some of our toughest piggies to bond have been female. It could be that in years past when everyone kept their guinea pigs in tiny pet store cages that males fought quite a bit. Just imagine trying to house 2 teenage brothers (humans) or for that matter, any two humans, in a closet or elevator together - yes, things could get confrontational. But with today’s bigger cages, happily bonded pairs of males, females or both are happily quite common.  To us, it all comes down to individual personalities. Come see who you like - who you connect with - and who is getting along.

Bella and Stella (below) (Bella is the mostly white piggy) - These two sweet bonded girls were rescued by a friend of mine from a terrible situation but are now very spoiled. They are about three years old. The foster mom is looking for a FOREVER home without young kids.  Must provide a big cage - at least a 2 grid x 4 grid C&C cage. The guinea pigs are located in La Honda. If interested, please email Cavy House at and I’ll forward your information to the foster mom. Adoption to be completed through a private owner, not Cavy House.

Available Now: : Inkblot is a young, black female who arrived here as a new mom. Her pup has been adopted and she’s currently getting some well-deserved R&R. Splotch (her sister?) was a good aunt to Inkblot’s pups. They are both petite little piggies and much cuter in person than their photos. (It’s really hard to photograph solid black pets). Both are looking now for a great home together.

Inkblot and Splotch are relatively easy to pick up and handle and sits nicely on my lap.

Elmer Fudd - Adopted!!

AVAILABLE NOW: Cruiser and Plum (below)  are a cute little pair of male guinea pigs who are available now for adoption together. Plum is a golden agouti American smooth-haired pup who was born around the beginning of February, 2017. We think Cruiser is a young male piggy who most likely is under a year old. He is mostly black with a white racing stripe. These two have grown quite bonded. I had Plum out for a few minutes and Cruiser immediately started wheeking for him. They’re usually hanging out together.

Apricot (below)- is a young female who arrived here with two pups, Kiwi and Plum. Kiwi has already been adopted. Plum, a male pup, is still available. Apricot is pregnant again so she is just hanging out with us until she has her next pups.  She’s a cute piggy who has been getting more and more outgoing. She’s got completely different markings on her left side and right side- almost doesn’t look like the same piggy!
