We only accept guinea pigs from municipal shelters and other rescues. 

We do not accept requests to take owner surrenders under any circumstances whatsoever.  However, we may be able to assist you to rehome your guinea pig(s) by providing a posting service through our website and FB page.  For further information, please contact us.

Also check out our Surrenders and Rehoming pages.

The ONLY exceptions to this policy are guinea pigs which were originally adopted from us.  If you need to return guinea pigs adopted from us,

please e-mail us at info@pigglesrescue.com.

For full statistics, see our About page.

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

Also, all adopted pigs must be picked up by the adopter, and will only be adopted to homes in the Greater Toronto Area (Toronto and the regions of Durham, York, Peel & Halton). 

This only applies to guinea pigs actually with the rescue and not those being featured through our Courtesy Postings service.
