Coming to the Rescue?
L.A. Guinea Pig Rescue and Adoption Center is located in Chatsworth, CA. We are a NO-KILL private shelter. All of our guinea pigs are located at our facility. At any time we usually have about 300+ guinea pigs and some of those may be babies. We require appointments for adoptions, health checks, pop-up urgent care clinic, and bubble baths.
Maybe not the onion, potato and mushrooms but you get the idea!!
We are LIVE every single Saturday!
Starting at 2:00 P.M. PST on YouTube.
We usually stream for 4 - 5 hours straight. You will get a good idea of what goes on here!
Meet our Director...
Saskia has been involved in guinea pig rescue for over 23 years. In this video she explains her passion for guinea pigs and what makes them such adorable little beings.
This massive rescue just happened and is a continuation of another rescue we did 3 years ago at the same location. This time it is for good, finally all are safe! Watch here:
Watch the video to get the idea what we are dealing with right now. It is not pretty. The males are all in terrible shape. Most have missing/infected eyes, broken teeth, and other wounds. 180 of them!!! https://www.laguineapigrescue.com/donate.html help?

Please don't buy a guinea
Please don't buy a guinea pig from a pet store until the corporations can guarantee healthy animals being sold! . Big name pet stores as well as small local shops sell guinea pigs that come from huge breeding facilities just like puppy mills. Many of the animals are sick when purchased.
