About Our Rescue Group:

Piggles Rescue takes in guinea pigs from shelters and occasionally from owners, and cares for them until a suitable forever home can be found.

We also contact people offering guinea pigs "free to a good home" on Kijiji, Craigslist, etc to warn them of the potential dangers to their pet, and to offer help with rehoming them.

We are happy to offer help and advice on any aspect of guinea pig care. Please do not hesitate to e-mail us if you have questions.

Piggles Guinea Pig Rescue is a member rescue of Helping Homeless Pets (www.helpinghomelesspets.com)

Come Meet our Pets:

Our available piggies are cared for at the main rescue in Blackstock (NE of Oshawa) and in foster homes throughout Southern Ontario. Their location is stated in their description, but we can move them closer to an adopter if required.

All incoming piggies are quarantined for two weeks to prevent the spread of disease or contgious conditions, and to give us the opportunity to assess their personalities. They are only listed as adoptable once this process is complete, but all the piggies in our program can be seen on our website. Please visit www.pigglesrescue.com and check us out!

Our Adoption Process:

All potential adopters are required to complete an Adoption Application, so that we can assess whether guinea pigs are right for their family and that they can provide a suitable environment for our piggies. Once their application has been approved, they come to meet the piggies and, if everything goes well, they complete the adoption by signing an Adoption Agreement and paying an adoption fee of $25 per piggie.

Guinea pigs are social animals and do best in single-sex pairs or groups, so we will only adopt piggies out in pairs, unless the adopter already has a piggie. We do also neuter our single male piggies and match them with girls prior to adoption.

Why should you adopt?

small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
