Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have. We want you to make the right choice in deciding to adopt a guinea pig. Please take your time to make the right decision. Often people get a guinea pig without realizing that it can be an eight year commitment. Guinea pigs need lots of care and attention from an adult. A child cannot care for a guinea pig. We are thankful that you are considering adopting a guinea pig.
