Contact the Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue Team
please read this first
Our priority is the email communication to set up adoptions and urgent surrender appointment through email. Follow ups on adoptions are pretty important as well for us to handle right away. And then ...... we run out of manpower to get to the rest of the emaill. Saskia is busier than ever now with a lot of demand on her time and has to be frequently reminded that she can't do it all even though she really wants to help everyone who needs her.
We will get to your questions eventually but if you are having an emergency then please do not wait for an answer but take your guinea pig to a local cavy savvy vet.
If you are calling about a MEDICAL EMERGENCY with your guinea pig then please contact one of our recommended vets. If you are not local please see a local vet ASAP.
