Guinea Pigs R Fun !

Our Motto:

"We never met a cavy we didn't love!"

Welcome to our relocated  Guinea Pig site!  Previously, we were a WebTV site, 1999-2013.  (Unfortunately, Microsoft permanently closed down all service for WebTV/MSNTV on Oct. 1, 2013.)


Guinea Pigs R Fun celebrates the fun of cavy ownership and encourages adopting GPs in need!  We are not breeders - almost all the GPs on this non-profit  site were adopted from the Humane Society. 


Guinea Pigs R Us!


We welcome Guinea Pig Fans from

all over the world!  Cool


We hope you'll sit back and smile while surfing through our site's sweet GP photos, cool original GP sculptures and art work!
