We run a guinea pig rescue. We go out into the field and find and take in abandoned guinea pigs. Many guinea pigs are left out in the wild daily due to a lack of education. Many think they can survive in the wild since they are rodents but the truth is they cannot and usually die within days. The backbone of our rescue is to find those abandoned guinea pigs when called and notified they have been abandoned. This is the rescue part. We take in and give home and care to sick guinea pigs that their owner could not afford medical care. We provide medical care to those guinea pigs by taking them to the vet and providing treatment. We also take in unwanted guinea pigs that no other rescues take in. We provide those guinea pigs with a home and care and find them homes. Guinea pigs are herd animals and need to be housed in pairs for better health and development. We also provide the community with matchmaking and bonding sessions whereby owners with single Guinea Pigs come to us to help bond and pair their guinea pig with our single rescue guinea pig. We also provide educational workshops for children and adults on how to properly care for a pet Guinea Pig and how to provide treatment for sick Guinea Pigs such as critical care feeding with syringe and health checks (checking for any health problems that needs to be addressed by individual or vet.). We also teach grooming, nail clipping, ear cleaning and how to give a bath safely to small pets like Guinea Pigs. We also provide information and resources.

As well as products (such as wooden huts alternative to the common plastic huts, these wooden huts are safe for guinea pigs and are sold at the rescue with the intention of convincing the community to go green to help the climate) we sell and provide services such as matchmaking, birthday parties, visitation fee, and sponsorship programs.
