ADOPTION POLICIES


 
  • Applications are required for all adoptable animals.  The application will be reviewed within 24-48 hrs. Once you have been approved we will arrange a meet and greet.
  • We do not adopt out our rescue's as a classroom pet.  They must be cared for as part of the family.
  • We do not adopt out guinea pigs as a child's pet.  They have specific needs and diets that need a responsible adult to be the primary care giver.
  • You must house your new adopted animal indoors in a properly sized enclosure.  Larger is better and we recommend C&C cages or midwest cages for our guinea pigs. Most pet store cages are much too small. To make your own cage which is the cheapest and best option you can find instructions at www.guineapigcages.com  We would like to view a picture of your cage prior to finalizing the adoption. Midwest guinea pig cages are available online at amazon.ca
  • Aquariums are NOT a suitable enclosure for guinea pigs or rabbits.  They do not have enough ventilation for rabbits and guinea pigs.  
  • You must use paper bedding (Carefresh) Aspen or Fleece blankets for cages.  Pine and cedar bedding are toxic to small animals and must not be used as bedding and or litter. 
  • You must provide the proper diet for your adopted animal(s).
  • We use and recommend Martin Mills brand of pellets or Oxbow pellets.  Muesli type pellets must not be used as they cause many health issues. 
  • If at anytime you are not able to provide the proper care and quality of life for your new family member then you must return the animal(s) to Tiny Paws Small Animal Rescue.  

  • *Your adoption fee will not be refunded.
