Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue - Currently Home to Over 450 Guinea Pigs
We have been rescuing, re-homing, educating the public and animal control agencies about guinea pigs and their proper care since 1999
Every Year we Deal with an Enormous Volume of Unwanted and Abandoned Guinea Pigs
We found homes for more than 1200 guinea pigs in 2017
Part of our mission is to educate. Know this, guinea pigs bought from pet stores come from commercial suppliers that operate huge factory like warehouses with row upon row of breeding animals. Pet stores place orders and babies are bred, born and shipped with not a thought for their well being. And don't for one second think these animals receive any more than the most basic of care. Adopt from a local rescue, do not contribute to the misery of these guinea pig mills.
More than 1200 guinea pigs were placed in adoptive homes in 2017 alone. This means that 1200 guinea in the Los Angeles area were unwanted and abandoned. Wait! that number is much higher. Just think of all the guinea pigs we couldn't take. We had to say no, more often than yes in 2017 to guinea pigs desperate for a break and a place in our program and a loving adoptive home.
