Our Story

Second Chance Cavy Rescue is a registered 501 3 c nonprofit organization that focuses on taking in unwanted cavies and finding forever homes for them.  We make sure they are healthy, well-fed and we work to match personalities with potential adopters.  We currently have babies as well as adults available for adoption.  We do require an adoption contact and  $35 fee for same gender pairs( this helps to fund the hay, bedding, vet care and daily greens to keep our piggies healthy!),  Feel free to call and make an appointment to stop by and find your next new friend!  We also give ongoing support with petsitting, nail trims, medical checkups and education appointments.  


Have a single piggie that needs a friend?  We can help!  We have extensive experience matchiing up same gender pairs successfully and have a 95% rate of good bonding with males as well as females.

We also have a Classroom Foster Program that we do with local elementary schools.  Teachers can foster a guinea pig, complete with cage and starter supplies for the school year and then, return it to us during the summer months. The goal being to educate kids on care, handling and respecting small pets, giving them a chance to interact with one without the comittment of owning one.

Yes, we are still in business! Adopted out 135 piggies last year, which gives us over 300 piggies in new homes in 3 yrs! Check us out on Facebook and Petfinder,com to see what is new!

I am looking to adopt a sweet guinea adult or baby (prefer a baby). I do not agree with buying pets from stores, too many furr babies out there needing good homes! I am currently a foster mom to South Texas Persian Rescue. Would love to give a guinea a fantastic forever home!

Owner's reply

I know you love the two babies you got yesterday! Thank you for giving them a forever home!

Hello! Can I make an appointment to visit your guinea pigs. The Easter Bunny brought one to our daughter and 20 days later he suddenly passed away. She is devastated. I have heard that pet store guinea pigs aren't the best and I want to get one that I know is healthy. The pet store won't refund money or replace the guinea pig as they only give 14 days warranty. We are interested in two as i have heard two together is better. Thanks so much!

Hello! I live in San Antonio and I have a single male guinea pig around 9 months old, very soon I will be needing to get him a friend. First I am going to upgrade his cage to a bigger size, but I was wondering how/if you match guinea pigs personalities? I would love to get him another male to live inside his cage with him as a companion.

Owner's reply

The best way is to bring him to my place and we can see who he matches up with. contact me to set up a time

Owner's reply

We do not ship, too expensive and stressful for the piggies. Do you not have any guinea pigs locally that need homes? I am curious, if you are a rescue, why you want more, is it for personal pets , breeding or to adopt out?

Can you SHIP?

Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.

But I want THAT one!

Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!

Need help finding one or two?
