Generally speaking, Piggles Rescue only accepts guinea pigs from

municipal shelters and other rescues.  Up until now, we have also taken owner surrenders when space permits, but that is no longer possible.  With immediate effect, we can no longer accept owner surrenders under any circumstances whatsoever. 

Please do not ask us, as the answer has to be no, and any requests to take guinea pigs will be referred to our Surrenders page.

The ONLY exceptions to this are guinea pigs which were originally adopted from us, and those we have already committed to take.  If you need to return guinea pigs adopted from us, please e-mail us at info@pigglesrescue.com.

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.  We have varied this policy in the past, but are no longer willing to adopt outside of our area, unless we already know the adopter.
