Find a Guinea Pig Rescue Near Me
If you are interested in owning guinea pigs, we urge you to contact these rescue centres (see full list below or search above) and to adopt a guinea pig rather than buying from a pet shop.
Like many other pets, there are countless guinea pigs that have been abandoned or mistreated and guinea pig rescue sanctuaries are absolutely overloaded with these lovely but unwanted animals.
Adopt Don’t Shop
By adopting a guinea pig from a rescue centre you are supporting the #adoptdontshop ethos. Pet shops will only supply when there is demand. If we can reduce that demand, the more chance there is of that the pet shops will reduce their supply chain.
Guinea pigs are wonderful pets with the most adorable personalities but they deserve to be treated with love and care. Please help them by contacting one of the rescue centres below rather than your local pet shop.
Rescue Centre Requirements
To ensure guinea pigs from these centres go to caring homes that are set up correctly for the guinea pigs, they usually do a home visit. They will need to see that you have the right sized cage for your new piggies. Please take a look at the articles where we have links to buy hutches or cages we recommend:
