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

We do not accept owner surrenders under any circumstances whatsoever.

Please do not ask us, as the answer will be no, and any requests to take guinea pigs will be referred to our Surrenders page.  If you need to find a new home for your guinea pig(s), please refer to our Rehoming page for ideas.

The ONLY exceptions to this 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.


This site is updated regularly.

Please take a look around, there’s lots of information here, and hopefully you will find the answer to any questions you have about adopting a

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 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).
