Guinea Pig Wikia


​As the largest guinea pig welfare organization in the USA, LA Guinea Pig Rescue serves Los Angeles City, County and surrounding cities.

Over 800 guinea pigs were rescued and re-homed in 2016 alone. 
LAGPR offers rescue, sanctuary and adoption services as well as free wellness checks, nail clips, advice and ongoing support to all guinea pigs and their owners.
​Guinea pigs are rescued from city shelters and private parties.
We rely solely on donations and volunteers to keep going. 
​ Founder Saskia Chiesa started the organization in 1999 shortly after arriving here from her native Holland.
