Surrender Options


Sometimes unexpected life events can cause the need for surrender of guinea pigs to a safe location. We understand this can happen, and strive to provide a “no judgement” environment for people to explore surrender options. At TGPR we have 2 surrender and rehoming options available:

Surrender to Rescue


TGPR works with a network of certified fosters to offer temporary placements to piggies waiting for a new home. Surrender requests are processed on a first-come-first-serve basis, and accepted based on capacity, need and  gender availability. 

You can initiate surrender to the rescue with the form HERE.

There is a $20 surrender fee which must be paid before hand-off. If you cannot afford the surrender fee, please request a waiver on the surrender form.
