Who are we?
Auckland Cavy Care is rescue, we are not a pet shop or a breeder.
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 with finding the 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.
We use the term 'adopt' not 'buy' as we do breed nor do we sell 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.
