Meet Chincoteague and Assateague! These sweet and adorable girls were rescued from a Maryland shelter who reached out to us for help. Chincoteague is white/brown and quite spherical, and Assateague is a lovely mixture of oranges/browns with a smaller/sleeker frame. You can often find them cuddling together in the same hidey house! They are very bonded, so we are looking for a home where they will be able to stay together. They get very excited for their daily salad of fresh fruit and veggies and squeal with delight when they see us coming. They are happy to chill out on your lap and watch TV with you. They'll be a wonderful addition to your family! 

All our guinea pigs see the vet for a wellness visit and nail trim prior to 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, pleas fill out a "Guinea Pig Application"   at

 Links to our Amazon and Chewy wishlists:


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.
