Little Wheeks Rescue is a small, two-person operation. We are currently closed to rescues except in emergencies (e.g., abandonment) or in the case of elderly or ill animals who require extra care. Since opening in 2012, we have taken in nine guinea pigs, rehomed six, and seen the remaining three over the Rainbow Bridge (one due to illness, which we fought valiantly, and two due to old age, as they were five years old when they came to us). We have also helped people learn more about their animals and become more comfortable handling and caring for them.
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!
