WCGPR IS CLOSED UNTIL QUARANTINE LIFTED
In order to keep our director and volunteers safe and stop the spread of disease, WCGPR will close to all surrenders and adoptions until closing of nonessential business is no longer recommended. If you need advice for a true emergency with your guinea pig, please email or call us.
We need financial help in this time more than ever! Without the adoption and surrender fees, our rescue can only sustain itself a short time. We have over 100 guinea pigs in the rescue and sanctuary. Please consider making a donation at this time, any little bit will help!

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.
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.
