Thank you for visiting the Piggles Rescue website.

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

guinea pig, or aspects of GP care.

If not, or if you require more details, please contact us at


All emails are answered within 24 hours (and usually much more quickly). 

If you do not receive a response within this time, then technology

has failed us - please contact us again!



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

We do not accept requests to take owner surrenders under any circumstances whatsoever.  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 further information and advice on rehoming guinea pigs, check out our Surrenders and Rehoming pages.

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 people over the age of 18, living in the Greater Toronto Area (Toronto and the regions of Durham, York, Peel & Halton).
