Rescue Me ID: 17-06-18-00013Guinea Pig (female)

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    Stella is a two-year-old guinea pig in need of a forever home. She REALLY wants to find a family with at least one other female guinea pig so she can be part of a herd, as social piggies are meant to do. She is very calm and super gentle. She also has quite the fiesty side and loves running about and exploring during floor time. We keep supplies and properly sized cages on hand for adopters, if needed. Contact us at to come meet Stella!

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-18-00012Guinea Pig (male)

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    Baby, (who, ironically, is a little older than pal Charlie at 1.5 years) is now up for adoption! Baby is a sweet guy on the smaller side with the cutest little piggie pout you've ever seen. He went awhile without receiving much attention so is working on becoming less fearful and more confident around people. He's ready to learn that life is only going to be good from here on out! We're sure that bonding him with fun-loving Charlie will help him come out of his shell and feel more secure in his environment. He'd do best with a patient family that has older kids, as loud noises startle him and a calm environment will really help earn his ... (Read More)trust quickly. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-14-00138rat (female)

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    This is Sallie, she was housed with males and got pregnant, she's been sorta aggressive ever since. I rescued her because no one wanted her at the pet store, she comes with a big two level ferret cage which she seems to love. I have a giant breed dog so I need to move to a bigger place, but they won't allow more than one animal, I already re-homed my ball python (it was sad to see her go) Please help me find her a home, I have been trying to work with her so she won't bite but she needs someone with more time and patience than me. She's a great rat, she is healthy.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-19-00341Rat (female)

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    This is Luna. I haven't been able to train her and after about a month, I am still getting bitten. I would prefer that she only goes to someone who specializes in rats as a first time or amateur rat owner would likely not be able to socialize her on their own. I can include a cage, water dispenser, some food and several other amenities that you can choose whether to keep.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-08-00436Chinchilla (female)

Small Mammal    Age: Adult

    I have 3 chinchillas that need good homes. They are around 5 years old. Two have always been together and should probably stay together and the other is a single female. I believe all are standard gray but the single one has quite a bit of black too. My daughters received them from people who no longer wanted them and have cared for them for years. The girls are older now and in many activities and just don't have the time to give them the attention they require. I am in Bristol, VA. A rehoming fee of $50 each will apply.

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    Onyx is a solid black little ball of cute! I, unfortunately, do not have the time for him anymore.... So, I'm looking for a wonderful, loving home for my little guy. Comes with a cage with 2 tunnels (in ok shape, but serves the purpose very well). Please, serious inquires only.

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult

    I have two cinnamon African Soft Furred Rats of the same gender. The older one is curious and with some coaxing would climb into my hand/onto my shoulder. The smaller one is not as happy interacting with people. They like coconut oil, corn and green beans.

PIease Read Before Adopting Rodents & Small Mammal in Virginia
    Rodents & Small Mammals can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. Rodents are small mammals with four sharp teeth they use to eat, gnaw wood, and defend themselves. Several types of rodents are popular pets, such as chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, and guinea pigs. Even rats are kept as pets! Rodents are often purchased as gifts for children. Sadly, however, many owners of rodent pets do not know how to care for them properly, and young children are often unprepared for the responsibility of having a pet. Families may not approach the purchase of a rodent with the same level of commitment they would have to a pet dog or cat. Mistakes can be made regarding the genders of a pair of rodents, resulting in a litter of unexpected babies. Some owners of rodents simply turn their pets loose when they get tired of them, which usually leads to the death of the animals, since they are not adapted to life in the wild. Free to good home ads can result in a rodent being used for snake food. There are some rodent rescue operations out there that can receive discarded pets, but these places tend to become overloaded due to so many people getting rid of their rodents. Please approach all decisions to get a pet with a long-term commitment, and pursue adoption rather than buying a rodent from a pet store.

    Rodents have front teeth that never stop growing and have to be worn down constantly by gnawing. Rodents are one of only a few types of placental mammals native to Australia. Rabbits are not rodents.
