I don't know of any NC breeders, but I do guinea pig rescue in NC. We are overrun. There are guinea pigs in most shelters, and we have several small animal rescues in our area who are full.

I tried a online search and couldn't find any for sale, they would only let me join the national breeder group... I also was unable to find any Rescues with Guineas, could you post there sites, addresses, or numbers?

Thanks so much for the help!!!

wheek sister, what part of the state are you in? (Mountains, piedmont, coast?) I don't want to send you places that are 6 hours away from you!

There's actually a big choice to choose from in the Piedmont.

http://www.allcreaturesrescue.org
http://www.raleighrodentrescue.org
http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/NC541.html (Carolina Pet Rescue)
http://www.spcawake.org (they have none listed now, but frequently have guinea pigs, so check back)

Also the Durham APS, Wake County Animal Control, and the Orange County Animal Shelter frequently have guinea pigs in. They don't make it to the site often, though, so you'll have to call there and ask directly.

Also, here are the guinea pigs available on Craigslist:
http://raleigh.craigslist.org/search...ery=guinea+pig

I hope this helps!
