Who We Are    

At AZ Guinea Pigs, we are dedicated to rescuing as many Guinea Pigs as possible. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to saving Guinea Pigs.  We started in 2017 and officially created the Rescue in 2019 , AZ Guinea Pigs is a 501-C3 nonprofit organization supported completely by donations. Our all-volunteer, home-based organization volunteers work endlessly to save Guinea Pigs.  We have rescued Guinea Pigs in Arizona, California, Utah, New Mexico but our primary focus remains Phoenix and surrounding areas.

What We Do

AZ Guinea Pig  Rescue’s primary goal is to is to find  Guinea Pigs loving and permanent homes. We accept all animals who come through our doors. We understand that sometimes it may be necessary to give up a pet and we will do our very best to place yours into a new home. If your pet is in good health, and behaviorally sound, we have an adoption program. Some animals may be disqualified from the adoption program for obvious signs of disease, neglect, or animals who demonstrate a high degree of aggression toward volunteer staff. For those animals, we may offer a forever home foster.

AZ Guinea Pig holds adoption events throughout the year. Our adoption events are community events – We’re committed to matching wonderful, adoptable Guinea Pigs with loving families.

AZ Guinea Pigs also offers the ability to foster a Guinea Pig while a permanent home is sought. Our fosters provide a crucial transition step in our process. We also have a youth foster program that enables youth to learn responsibility and caring. Rescuing a pet guinea pig from AZ Guinea Pigs could bring tremendous amounts of joy and life into your home. With the proper care and adequate attention, these small pets can earn a large spot in your heart.
