Wheeker's Guinea Pig Rescue is a home based rescue located in Northwest Indiana. The rescue was founded in February of 2010 by our now current foster, Amber, after she brought home her very first guinea pig & then looked online & saw how many are in shelters &/or rescues who are looking for homes. Within a few months of bringing her guinea pig home, Wheeker's was created.
The rescue is made up of people who dedicate their time to providing shelter to guinea pigs that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. We also accept private surrenders from individuals or families who can no longer care for their guinea pigs. Once in a while we will take in hedgehogs, chinchillas, etc on a case by case basis.
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!
