ABOUT 

Mission
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. 

Education 
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.
