Wheek Care Guinea Pig Rescue
Wheek Care Guinea Pig Rescue's mission is to provide rescue, medical, and sanctuary services to all guinea pigs while also providing boarding, grooming, bonding, respite and hospice services to cavies.
Wheek Care provides medical care to any guinea pig with health issues. Guinea pigs with health complications preventing adoption will remain within Wheek Care until the health issues are resolved. In some cases, the guinea pig will need sanctuary at Wheek Care for the remainder of its life, no matter how long that may be. Wheek Care Guinea Pig Rescue also provides palliative and respite care when deemed necessary.
Adoption & Fostering
Adoptions occur through the Wheek Care website, Petfinder, and local events in our communities. Fosters are utilized in situations such as a guinea pig needing socialization, rehabilitation, medical care, and even respite.
Guided by decades of experience and a general passion for guinea pigs, Wheek Care is qualified to educate the general public and potential adopters on proper guinea pig care.The goal of education is to assist people in becoming better equipped to care for their own guinea pigs, as well as making informed decisions as to whether or not a cavy is the right companion animal for their families.
