Adoption Stories

We receive wonderful stories of TCHS alumni on a regular basis, and we want to offer our sincere thanks to all who take the time to share them with us. We are invested in each and every pet we care for, and we want the best for them!  This is why we do what we do. Why you give, volunteer, adopt, and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.

Hudson and Nugget

Anyone who’s ever owned a guinea pig can attest that even though they’re small creatures, they can have a big pull on your heart. This adoption story is about a pair of piggies who are loving their new home. Hudson the guinea pig spent some time in foster care to have her four babies; she ended up being adopted in late November 2022 with Nugget, a female who was the tiniest of Hudson’s litter.

Guinea pigs are extremely social creatures who often appreciate having a friend to share their habitat.

“They are doing great and are all settled into our home and family. They love every veggie we have given them, enjoy being held while cozying up in fleece, jump and get the zoomies after a good habitat cleaning, and even don't mind the family dog. They are likely some of the most spoiled guinea pigs around. We were new to guinea pigs - these two have been awesome and are very loved!”

"There are bad days, bad moments, bad people. But never stop believing that goodness does not exist because earth still has guinea pigs." Anonymous
