About Our Rescue Group:

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donation information may be requested by contacting our rescue.

Come Meet our Pets:

To meet our adoptable pets you need to first email or call our rescue to speak (or wheek) with a volunteer so we can discuss what guinea pigs best suit your personality, housing situation, etc. Occasionally we participate in local Petco adoption events and other local animal adoption events in our area.

Our Adoption Process:

We use and require all of our guinea pig adopters to use the C & C cage method as a home for their guinea pigs. Pet store cages are far too small for one guinea pig as a permanent home, and totally unacceptable for a pair or more. Wheek Care Guinea Pig Rescue is able to help potential adopters get 4' x 8' coroplast at wholesale prices; and comes in 13 different colors; and we will be happy to supply simple instructions on the cage's construction.
Adopters will not be permitted to adopt only 1 guinea pig. Guinea pigs are social creatures and can become depressed and overweight because of the loneliness. If adopters have guinea pigs already at home and want to add to their piggie family, we ask that they bring their pigs to our rescue to do a meet and greet.
Adoption donations are requested but not required. Adoption fees help supplement the cost of medical care, feeding, and bedding that the rescue otherwise provides all expenses for.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

rabbits and small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a rabbit and small animal for sale or finding a rabbit and small animal breeder, adopting a rabbit and small animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a rabbit and small animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a rabbit and small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your rabbit and small animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a rabbit and small animal. There are different types of rabbits and small animals .
