  • Hair: Unknown

My name is Jose and I'm a mystery boy. Not much is known about me since I was abandoned at a bus station in a tupperware container with the lid on. This happened last month. Someone called animal control and I was saved just in the nick of time. I am not a San Diegan but was found about 2.5 hours from here. A wonderful volunteer made the drive to San Diego to bring me into the safe hands of Wee Companions. I rode along with a 16-year old dog. We were both pretty scared because we were unsure of our future but boy, I'm having a good time here! I love to come out on the couch (I haven't jumped off so far) and like to be carried around. My foster momma is still getting to know me. I'm a little scared of hands reaching into the cage so I will need a patient home who understands I've just been through a lot of changes in my life. My age is unknown. I could be 1 year old, I could be older. What I do know is that I'm safe and I will patiently be waiting for my forever home. If interested in adopting them, please email Antonella at or call 619 916 4030 (no texting since this is a landline) and leave a message.

Adoption fee: $15

About Wee Companions

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to rescue guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and other small exotic mammals from shelters, places of abandonment, and from persons relinquishing their pets. Whenever possible, we offer a safe house to these animals, irrespective of age, temperament, or health status. These animals will receive veterinary care and socialization in the hopes that they will be placed in a "forever" home. Animals given Sanctuary Status will be placed in our Foster Care Network to live out their lives in comfort and with love. We are also focused on educating foster parents, school children and others on the care, feeding and prevention of unwanted litters of these animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

On Saturdays only, from 11am -4pm we have adoptions & supply sales at 3368 Governor Dr., Suite F, San Diego, CA 92122. Please contact us several days prior to the event if you are interested in adopting, so we can bring appropriate animals. We are only able to bring a limited number of animals with us.
Please bring an appropriate animal carrier to the event if you are planning to adopt.

We also do adoptions by appointment only, if Saturdays are not convenient. Please contact us for more information.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Preview an available pet on our Available Animals page, at an adoption event or make arrangements to visit the main foster location to meet our available animals. Email Fenella, with any questions, to talk about the specifics of any animal or to ask for certain animals to be brought to an event.

2. Meet with an adoption volunteer who is trained to help make the best pet match for you and the pet. Each pet up for adoption has received behavioral and health assessments in order to help determine the best home for that pet. Volunteers will help you decide if the animal you are interested in is a good match for your lifestyle and will direct you to any pets that may be appropriate. If you are looking for a companion for an animal that you already have at home, please let us know and bring the animal with you so that we can check them over and begin introductions to make sure we find the best match for your situation.

3. Complete the adoption once you and our adoption volunteers agree that you've found a great match. We prefer that all members of the household (including other pets that will be interacting with the new animal) are present during the adoption process to ensure that the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. If they are unavailable, a "hold" may be placed on the pet for a short period in order for any family or other pets to come in and meet with us and the pet.

4. At the time of adoption, you will be asked to sign a contract stipulating:

1. You will not breed the animal.
2. The animal will receive veterinary care
3. The animal will be treated humanely
4. If you are unable to care for the animal for any reason, it is to be returned to Wee Companions.
The Adoption Contract is a binding legal document, you must be 18 years or older to sign.
Bring a carrier with you to safely transport your new family member home.

Single Rabbit - $50.00
Bonded Pair of Rabbits - $75.00

We reserve the right to deny adoption to anyone.
