About Us...

Please Note: Due to a lack of shelter space La Honda Mountain Cats Rescue is no longer operating.

Welcome to Cavy House Rescue. We are a small, friendly, home-based rescue. We rescue guinea pigs, and a few other types of animals from shelters when these animals run out of time at their shelters. On a space available basis, we also accept guinea pigs from the community.

We provide each animal with veterinary care, TLC and a loving foster setting while they wait for an adoptive home. Our main location is in La Honda and we show in several more central locations. We hold adoption shows and set up meetings where the public may visit and possible adopt a guinea pig or a pair. We do matchmaking as well. Guinea pigs do well in pairs as they are very social beings. . Naturally we place each guinea pig into loving, forever homes.

Cavy House Guinea Pigs

Cavy House has many guinea pigs available for adoption with new pigs arriving weekly. Check out the adoptable pigs by clicking "Our Adoptable Guinea Pigs" above. For more details about our guinea pigs and Cavy House Guinea Pig Rescue, please go to Cavy Guinea Pig Adoption Appointments
Weekend adoption appointments can be made to meet our guinea pigs at our rescue in La Honda.

You can check with us, and for guinea pigs in need of homes.

Guinea Pig Boarding
Cavy House is now boarding guinea pigs. The proceeds go to help our guinea pig rescue, as adoption fees do not cover expenses. Boarding fees have made some of our surgeries for the piggies possible.

One guinea pig: $8/day;
Two guinea pigs sharing a cage. $10/day;

Please Note: We don't normally "hold" guinea pigs for potential adopters because often times people will change their minds about which piggies they want when they get here or find something else in-between, which sometimes means we will lose an adoption to someone else who wanted those piggies. Our priority is trying to find a home for every piggy in the shelters and when we lose an adoption, it can mean some shelter piggy not getting out that could have. However, we will do our best to keep you updated.
