Cavy House Guinea Pig Rescue 2 years ago

We prefer communication via e-mail but if you don’t get a timely response from us, you can call us at 650-747-0544.

Cavy House rescues guinea pigs from local shelters and provides the necessary veterinary care and socializing so that they become adoptable and are then placed into loving, forever homes.

The rescue is located in our home in La Honda, which is in the northern end of the Santa Cruz mountains in the San Francisco bay area. We are 25 minutes west of Redwood City and about an hour away from San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Cruz. We are able to show you guinea pigs by appointment on weekends at our home or without appointments at our adoption fairs.

We work closely with other rescues and shelters and are glad to direct you to whoever has the best fit for you. Our goal is to get all piggies who need a home into a forever home.

We started our rescue in October 2005 and since then, have rescued over 600 guinea pigs. Our adoption fees do not cover all of our rescue costs.  We rely also on donations and fees from boarding guinea pigs.

We are part of the Rabbit Haven, a 501(c)3 organization.  To find out more about Rabbit Haven, go to TheRabbitHaven.org. Auntie Heather of the Rabbit Haven has many years of experience in rescue and has given us lots of advice and support.

Hello, I am very interested in adopting these two amazing brothers. I have a huge C and C cage and a huge running area also. I am an experienced guinea pig owner and love to have them apart of my pet friendly home. I live in Redwood City and would absolutely love to come by and bring them home. Thank you so much and have a great day/night. PLEASE GET BACK TO ME ASAP. EMAIL- giacevasco@yahoo.com.
