Cavy House rescues guinea pigs from local shelters and provides the necessary veterinary care and socializing so that they become adoptable and are then placed into loving, forever homes.

The rescue is located in our home in La Honda, which is in the northern end of the Santa Cruz mountains in the San Francisco bay area. We are 25 minutes west of Redwood City and about an hour away from San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Cruz. We are able to show you guinea pigs by appointment on weekends at our home or without appointments at our adoption fairs.

We work closely with other rescues and shelters and are glad to direct you to whoever has the best fit for you. Our goal is to get all piggies who need a home into a forever home.

We started our rescue in October 2005 and since then, have rescued over 600 guinea pigs. Our adoption fees do not cover all of our rescue costs.  We rely also on donations and fees from boarding guinea pigs.

We are part of the Rabbit Haven, a 501(c)3 organization.  To find out more about Rabbit Haven, go to Auntie Heather of the Rabbit Haven has many years of experience in rescue and has given us lots of advice and support.
