Whistle Ridge has been in existence since Spring 2003, and was established to provide a safe home for abandoned, neglected and abused guinea pigs. A particular aspect of this rescue is my dedication to evaluating and placing guinea pigs in Animal Assisted Therapy/Education/Activity programs. If a particular guinea pig (or pigs!) arrive at the rescue who seem to have the appropriate attitude and aptitude for this "work", I am committed to placing them in a home where they can enrich the lives of clients in a variety of settings. These placements in no way minimize the opportunity for these guinea pigs to have a loving, caring family of their own. Particular care is taken to ensure they will be family members FIRST, secondary is being part of a "therapy" program. When arriving at the rescue, all piggies are given a general health and temperament evaluation. If it is determined they need medical treatment, they are seen by one of my wonderful veterinarians in Auburn or South Gorham, Maine. Some minor issue are treated here, such as mites, lice, mild lameness, minor URI, etc.

If you are interested in adopting one of the guinea pigs at Whistle Ridge, please contact me for an adoption application. I will check references, as well as home ownership or permission from a landlord. This may seem a strict procedure, but far too many guinea pigs are abandoned because unsuspecting landlords order their tenants to abide by the "no pets" condition...after the pet has been in the home for a while. Because these little guys have been in multiple homes, I want to make absolutely certain that we have made the best choice for them...and for you! Most guinea pigs being adopted from Whistle Ridge are required to go as bonded pairs. Guinea pigs are extremely social animals, and in the wild they live in herds. It is not kind or healthy for a guinea pig to be the only cavy in the home! There may be instances when a single guinea pig can be adopted, provided there is already at least one other piggie already in that home. It is not necessarily required that they live in the same habitat together, just that they know the other is nearby for companionship!
