ABOUT US
Piggy Haven is a small, home-based guinea pig rescue and sanctuary based in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. We have been helping these precious little ones find safe loving homes since we started in 2010. We are a foster-based rescue, and always welcome new families to help out by starting the foster process. All of our piggies are kept in a loving and safe environment at all times. Our mission is to educate people about caring for guinea pigs and providing a safe environment for those in need until they find their forever home.

WHY CHOOSE ADOPTION?

Rescue animals are guaranteed preloved!
Adoption fees go right back into helping more animals.
Rescues take care in making sure their animals go to the best homes possible with applications, and they can even guide you as you prepare for your new family members.
Foster/rescue piggies come from homes just like yours and are more likely to be healthy (rescues tend to have great relationships with their vets) and tame!
By rescuing a pig or two, you open up a space for a pig or two who may desperately need help.
TIPS FOR REHOMING YOUR GUINEA PIG
If you find yourself in a situation in which you must find a new home for your guinea pig, we've compiled a list of tips to help you ensure the well-being of your animal.
  1. 1
    ONLY INTERACT WITH PEOPLE YOU TRUST
    Never give your pet away for free unless it is to someone you know and trust. The safety and well-being of your pet depends on you making an informed choice about their future home.
  2. 2
    ASK FOR REFERENCES
    If you aren't 100% confident in who you are considering giving your pet away to, don't hesitate to ask for references to validate whether or not the individual or organization has a good reputation.
  3. 3
    ASK FOR PHOTOS
    Ask to see a picture of the cage the guinea pigs will be living in (if applicable) or tell them you prefer to deliver the guinea pigs yourself (but never alone) to see the set up.
  4. 4
    TEST THEIR KNOWLEDGE
    Ask them questions about piggy care and make sure they know what they are getting into financially, and otherwise.
  5. 5
    RESEARCH YOUR OTHER OPTIONS
    As a last resort, if you are unable to care for your pet any longer and don't have anyone in mind who could care for them instead, you can surrender your animal to a local humane society (after thoroughly researching it!).
