Just wondering if any of the top 10 shelters in the Makeover contest adopt out small pets, such as guinea pigs and ferrets. I'd be interested in knowing about their adoption process for these pets, how they screen adopters and what kind of information they give out about these small animals.

HSBC does adopt out small pets. Ive had a sister in law adopt a ferret from them and she was very happy with the process. I have also seen rabbits,guinea pigs, and even a pig.

Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City get all sorts of animals (including guinea pigs). We are an open-door shelter, so no animal is turned away.

However, our specialty is dogs and cats. So, in order to get the guinea pig adopted out as soon as possible, we will reach out to our resources that work with guinea pigs specifically.

However, if they do not have room, we will shelter the guinea pig until such time as they do. No animal is every put down for lack of room or money.

If you would like to learn more about our shelter, please visit us at www.libertyhumane.org

P.S. Please note that we are in the Top 10 and that we are the Libery Humane located in Jersey City, NJ. There is another Liberty Humane Shelter located in Georgia. I am not sure of their policy on guinea pigs, though I know they are a great shelter too - as all the shelters in the zootoo.com competition are!
