Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
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)
All incoming piggies are quarantined for two weeks to prevent the spread of disease or contagious 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!
Guinea pigs are social animals and do best in pairs or groups (single sex, or mixed sex where one or both is spayed/neutered), so we will only adopt piggies out in pairs, unless the adopter already has a piggie. We do also spay/neuter selected single piggies and either adopt them out as companions for lonely single piggies or match them with a friend 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.
