If you are in need of a good cuddle, Melvin is ready to oblidge! He is one of the friendliest and most social Guinea Pigs we have ever met and he is always thrilled to cuddle up to a new friend! This guy may have found himself as an owner surrender in the city shelter, but air some point he truly was a loved member of a family, and you can tell by how much he loves to be held and loved.

If you are looking for a guinea pig to add to your family, either as a solo or as a new friend for a lonely male piggy, fill out an application for him below!

We are grateful to have had several wonderful photographers donate their time and skill to photograph our animals and their lives here. While many photos on our site were taken by WRAS Staff Members, others were taken by:
