Turtle Hill Farm of Vermont Animal Sanctuary, Inc., located in the Green Mountains near Woodstock, VT, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for homeless animals and preventing animal abuse and neglect. We specialize in horses, rabbits and guinea pigs, but have many other species residing at the farm including 2 dogs, lots of chickens, and two 25+ year old turtles.
Turtle Hill Farm of Vermont Animal Sanctuary, Inc. accepts surrendered guinea pigs. If you wish to surrender a guinea pig, please fill out a Surrender Form.
If you wish to adopt a guinea pig, please see our For Adoption page and fill out an Adoption Application. Approved adopters will be asked to sign an Adoption Agreement. In 2010, we took in 35 unwanted guinea pigs and placed 23 of them into loving, permanent homes. In 2011, we took in 44 guinea pigs and placed 37 pigs in adoptive homes. In 2012, we took in 53 guinea pigs and adopted out 25. In 2013, we took in 33 guinea pigs and adopted out 28.
We also serve as a foster home for horses from other rescue organizations and rescue horses directly from slaughter.
We have rabbits available for adoption through House Rabbit Network and also Turtle Hill Farm. In October 2011, Turtle Hill Farm took in 33 rabbits from a hoarding situation in which more than 80 rabbits were found in an abandoned shed. House Rabbit Network's team of volunteers removed all rabbits and they have been spayed/neutered and placed in foster homes (including Turtle Hill Farm).
