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.

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!
