  • While we understand the desire to stay connected with your former pet, we prioritize the privacy and security of our foster and adoptive families. Therefore, we do not typically provide contact information for the new families that adopt our rescued guinea pigs. This is to protect their privacy and ensure that they are not contacted by multiple individuals, which could become overwhelming or confusing for them.
  • That being said, we do understand that saying goodbye to a beloved pet can be difficult and emotional. If you have specific concerns or questions about your guinea pig’s new home, we are happy to provide updates on how they are doing in general. However, please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide frequent or detailed updates, as we prioritize the care and well-being of our current rescues.
