Meet Iris and Heather! We are THRILLED to announce that sweet little Iris is finally ready for adoption!! This little girl has been through so much. She arrived at DPR with a massive abscess on her face - it was 65 grams, which was 10% of her body weight at the time! Aside from that, she was skin and bones and very lethargic. But goodness is this little girl a fighter!! She underwent 3 surgeries to remove the infection and the damanged tissue. She was on medications for weeks, daily wound care, and weekly vet visits. She was such a trooper through everything, she seemed to know we were trying to help her, and she was always extremely agreeable with what needed to be done. She has finally healed, she's finished her medicines, and she's plumped up to a nice healthy weight (850 grams, compared to 600 grams when she arrived). She gets super excited about her hay and her veggies and has been getting extra treats for being such an exceptionally brave girl. Iris has long silky hair and a sweet personality to go along with her good looks.
Her best friend, Heather, has stuck by her side through everything. The two of them are inseparable. Heather is a petite guinea pig with a really pretty and unique grey coloring. She's really docile and loves to cuddle in your lap in a puddle of blankets. She also gets the zoomies pretty often. Both of these girls are very friendly and affectionate and will make a wonderful addition to your home!

Check out their cute videos-
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    

   Adoption fee is: $50 for the pair
 Can’t adopt? Consider donating! We are always in need of hay, pellets and guinea pig enrichment! 
 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.
