GUINEA PIG RESCUES

Home > Rescues
............................................................................

People are often unaware that a local shelter has guinea pigs, or that a cavy rescue is located nearby. In many parts of the country, hundreds of rescued guinea pigs need homes.

Rescues are generally familiar with an animal's temperament and health. Animals are surrendered for many reasons. You'll often find young socialized guinea pigs or a sweet middle-aged pair needing a home.

In contrast, pet store pigs are often ill or incorrectly sexed, increasing the odds of unintentionally purchasing a breeding pair or a young pregnant sow (sows can become pregnant as early as four weeks of age).

So do your homework (read all about guinea pigs!) and choose to adopt!

So You Want To Adopt A Guinea Pig by Jackie Smith-Burns is a great place to start.

Consider honoring a beloved guinea pig by supporting your local rescue.
