  Bringing big hope to little animals

luna & sweetie

a little bit about them

On the 12th of December, 2017, eight guinea pigs came into Sanctuary care. Two of these piggies were boars, six were sows, and Luna (top) and Sweetie (below) were two of the six. Luna is young and energetic. At approximately 6-8 months of age, zoomies are her favourite thing. Luna particularly enjoys zooming up and down the ramp that leads to her loft, and zooming in and out of her fleece tunnels. She's still very hesitant of being handled and can be timid around new people, but once she realises you mean her no harm she enjoys gentle cuddles in between her adventures. Sweetie, on the other hand, is a calm and cuddly lady. At approximately 1-2 years of age, she's perfectly content to sit on your lap or in a snuggle sac and enjoy gentle cuddles. Sweetie was bred in her previous home and safely gave birth to two pups on the 28th of December, 2017, in Sanctuary care. It's imperative that she go to a non-breeding home where she can live her days without the stress of pregnancy.

Luna and Sweetie deserve a calm and quiet indoor home, with their cage preferably set up in an area where they can watch you while still avoiding loud noises such as the TV or kitchen appliances. While they're both still relatively shy around people, they do enjoy listening to you talk gently and will happily come up to you when it's time for food.

ready to adopt?

Luna and Sweetie are available for adoption to a non-breeding, quiet, indoor home with no or older children, with supervised time in a secure outdoors enclosure when the weather permits. A minimum floor space of 10.5 square feet (a 2x4 C&C cage) is required, though the more space you can provide the better it is for exercise and play.

Their diet should consist of high quality grass hay available to them 24/7 for unlimited grazing, 1/8th of a cup of high quality pellets (such as Vetafarm or Oxbow) per pig, per day, and one cup of fresh vegetables per pig, per day. Please avoid mixes containing seeds and "coloured bits", which are incredibly unhealthy and can be a choking hazard. Do not feed any meat or dairy products, these can be fatal to guinea pigs. A list of safe fruits and vegetables can be found at

Due to their difficult past and prior lack of human interaction, the pair will take some time to trust new people and until then they'll be a little shy and timid at their new home. Mental stimulation with various toys and foods is key so that they can learn the investigative behaviours that they were previously deprived of. Their new family must be gentle, patient and understanding of their needs.

adoption fee: $40.00

their adoption fee includes their pre-adoption vet check, mite and lice treatment, bath, groom and nail trim
