Guinea Pig Supply List
We know choosing the best supplies can be confusing, especially when big box pet stores sell so many products that don't consider the health, comfort and unique needs of the animals as a top priority.
We've put together a shopping list to help you get the best items for your guinea pigs.
As volunteers, we work 24/7 to run this rescue so we only want the best for our adoptable piggies. While they are in our care, and in their new forever homes.
We've added links for easy shopping.
