Meet Richard! This fluffy little guy has a lot of personality to go along with his good looks! He is a Abyssinian guinea pig, and has cowlicks of hair called "rosettes". He is very curious and fun and likes being held. He enjoys romping around and exploring new places. Like all guinea pigs, he enjoys eating, especially romaine lettuce and peppers. He has always lived as a single guinea pig, and seems happy with that, but he would probably also enjoy a home where he can have another male guinea pig friend to keep him company. Check out my video!

DPR pulled him from a Maryland shelter. Richard has had a wellness vet check as well as a nail trim in preparation for adoption! 

Guinea pigs have wonderful personalities- they are gentle and we have yet to come across any who bite, and they keep a daytime schedule! They form close bonds with their people, similar to cats and dogs. Did you know they are able to recognize people based on scent, sound and sight?! These sweet animals make wonderful pets! 


If you are interested in adopting, please fill out a "Guinea Pig Application"   at    

   Adoption fee is: $30 

 Can’t adopt? Consider donating! We are in need of hay, pellets and guinea pig enrichment for Louie's care.

This website is updated daily.  If the animal you are interested in adopting is listed as "available for adoption", that means the animal is still in DPR's care. 

*Please note - we do not do on-site meet and greets. Potential adopters can speak to the guinea pig's foster mom on the phone or do a meeting on Zoom or Facetime if desired to virtually meet the guinea pig. You can pick your guinea pig up "curb side". Guinea pigs can be returned with a full refund for up to one week. *


DPR guinea pigs receive a vet check up prior to adoption!

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 charity. The adoption fee helps to offset our standard and non-standard vet bills.
