Welcome to Piggles Guinea 
Pig Rescue!

Foster home-based rescue in Southern Ontario, Canada


We are very sorry to start the Home page off on such a negative note, but a large number of the enquiries we receive are related to taking owner surrenders, and we are becoming overwhelmed by the sheer volume of these requests.  Much as we would love to be able to take in every unwanted guinea pig, the reality is that we can’t.

Generally speaking, Piggles Rescue can only accept guinea pigs from municipal shelters and other rescues.  When space permits, we do sometimes take owner surrenders, but right now we are not able to take any, other than those already on our wait list or previously adopted from us.   Please don’t ask us, as the answer has to be No, and any requests we receive will simply be directed to our SURRENDERS page. 

If you need to rehome your guinea pig(s), please check our REHOMING page for tips on doing so safely.

It is our policy NEVER to adopt out single guinea pigs unless the adopter already has one or more. 

Also, we do not ship guinea pigs.  All adopted pigs must be delivered by us or picked up in person, and will only be adopted to homes in Southern Ontario.
