Auckland Cavy Care is a small, home based rescue which relies on foster homes and donations. We use the term 'adopt' not 'buy' as we do not breed nor do we sell.
Each Guinea Pig that comes into the rescue is technically homeless. Many of the Guineas who come to us are picked up off the streets after being dumped or escaping from their caging, others come from homes that can no longer look after them and want to do the best by their Guinea Pigs, but are not able to put in the effort that it takes to find their Guinea Pigs a new home.
The Guineas stay at the rescue's home base, or at one of our many amazing foster homes; we encourage new adopters to consider fostering first, to see if Guinea Pig ownership is for you. Once they're out of quarantine they get put up for adoption to a loving permanent home where they will be valued and nurtured as part of the family.
We now have a GiveALittle Page so it is easier for the public to help us out. Thank you all very much for your support, it is really appreciated!
Until our care and health information sheets are updated, we recommend heading over to the GuineaLynx website or the Guinea Pig Medical and Health Advice group on Facebook. You will find useful information on these sites.
