Cavy Spirit is a Guinea Pig Rescue and Adoption home. We take in abandoned guinea pigs and place them, healthy and happy, in high quality, permanent homes. We focus on education and public awareness of the proper respect and care that these and all animals deserve. We are committed to breaking the chain of neglect, abuse, and abandonment.

This album is of the piggies that come to our rescue in a sad state. Acorn and Thumper were dumped on the doorstep of an SPCA Thrift Store. They came to us a few days later. Photos 1-19 were taken when we received them on 3/25. Photos 20-32 were taken after coming back from the vet on 3/26. Photos 33-43 were taken a couple of days later on 3/28. Photos 44-63 were taken at Day 12 on 4/5.

Thumper and Acorn are now GREAT! They were back to normal in LESS THAN ONE MONTH. I didn't have time to take photos until 7 weeks, but they were quite fine in less than 4 weeks.

Want to Adopt a Guinea Pig or Two? Please see our adoption requirements and online application for these lovely piggies on the Adopting page.Some guinea pigs are available to be paired up with a guinea pig that you may have at home. But some of them are bonded pairs or trios and need to stay together. Please do not expect questions posted in the guestbook below to be answered. You must contact us via email or phone or online adoption application for a response. Please note that any guinea pigs currently in foster homes are so indicated with the town they are living in. We usually bring the guinea pigs someone is interested in to the main Cavy Spirit rescue in San Mateo for the adoption process.
PLEASE NOTE: COMMENTS that contain repeating letters or punctuation WILL BE DELETED! (for example: awwww)

Hollister Adoptables
28. Hollister Adoptables  (July 14, 2002)
Adoptable Guinea Pigs from the Hollister Guinea Pig Rescue! All of the Hollister guinea pigs are now either at the Cavy Spirit or the few listed here are in foster. The Cavy Spirit adoptable guinea pigs can be seen on this album. When Cavy Spirit has room, they will be moved from foster to Cavy Spirit. If you are interested in one of these guinea pigs, you can adopt them directly from the foster home, assuming you go through the Cavy Spirit adoption process. If you are interested in adopting, you should review our adoption criteria and complete an online adoption application found on the Adopting page. Please see Contact Us more information. We only do local (SF Bay Area adoptions). Additional photos of those that have already been adopted can be found on the Adopted album.

Hollister Rescue
33. Hollister Rescue  (July 2, 2002)
Hollister Guinea Pig Rescue (July 2, 2002) 187 guinea pigs were seized from a woman in Hollister on 7/2/02 by Animal Control Officers. She had been breeding them for 11 years. She "traded the babies to pet stores for food" -- presumably for money for food for herself (there were no other animals). They were housed outdoors, next to a trailer. The animal control officers found empty water bottles and empty food dishes and at least one dead guinea pig outside of the cages. As you can see, the technique used for cleaning cages was to throw new shavings on top of old shavings -- for a long time. In one cage, the pile of feces was so high, the hair on the backs of the pigs was poking through the rusted cage wire on the top of the cage as they walked along. The compacted feces and bedding was filled with maggots and worms and other gross stuff. HAC (Hollister Animal Control) also expects to find the carcasses of dead guinea pigs as they sift through the mountains of ancient bedding. The stink was overpowering. It took three HAC trucks to transport all the cages from the residence to the shelter. At the time of the seizure, she wanted her pigs back. And she wanted the officers to leave the cages and only transport them in small carriers. The pigs were supposedly fed rabbit pellets and vitamin C in the water. She has now officially surrendered the guinea pigs and we must find new homes immediately. As pregnant sows deliver, we expect the numbers to climb to 300+ guinea pigs very soon. Please visit the new HOLLISTER page for the latest information on the rescue and the status of the guinea pigs as well as how you can help.

Monterey Rescue
37. Monterey Rescue  (September 9, 2002)
The Latest Guinea Pigs from Monterey In August LAST YEAR, 350 guinea pigs were rescued from a breeder who had been evicted from their home. They called the SPCA of Monterey to take their guinea pigs. These people had been breeding guinea pigs for biomedical research for 30 years. Most have been placed, but these poor guys have been living at the Monterey Shelter for a YEAR now!! They need a loving home! Please adopt one of these piggies and show them the love and attention that they've never had. Many of the Monterey pigs that have been adopted have made very sweet, lovable pets. You can still view the photo album of all the guinea pigs the day after the surrender, on Sept 1, 2001. We were there and got a lot of piggie photos! Go to the MHS album. Most of the white guinea pigs are FEMALES. Also, despite the lighting of the photo, they all have black eyes. BUT, when we went down to Monterey to get what we thought were the remaining 36 guinea pigs, they had just received in a new group of guinea pigs in very bad condition. The photos in the vehicle are from the trip back up from Monterey (a three hour trek). Photos of M1 through M20 were taken at MHS a while ago when we were planning on doing another trip with them. We will be checking those photos against who we brought back as as well as who is now at PHS for adoption. So, some of those photos may change. Currently ALL of these guinea pigs are at one person's home. She and her family are fostering them for us.

Bay Area Shelter Guinea Pigs
38. Bay Area Shelter Guinea Pigs  (September 6, 2002)
Guinea Pigs at San Francisco Bay Area Shelters We are starting with the abundance of guinea pigs at the Peninsula Humane Society. We gave 8 from the Monterey Humane Society to PHS when PHS had none. A few others have been surrendered since. But, the big problem now (Sept 6th) is a recent seizure from a woman (not right mentally) of 36 guinea pigs that all have very bad mites that were found running loose in her house. No food or water. These pigs will be held as evidence for 14 days. Then it depends on whether or not she surrenders them as to whether or not they have to continue to hold them as evidence.

Piggebago Road Trip!
40. Piggebago Road Trip!  (August 4, 2002)
The Guinea Pigs-A-Go-Go Rescue Railroad Trip
Jackie, Becky, Sophie, and Oreo (faithful companion) set off across the country on Monday, August 5th. The album starts the Sunday evening, prior to the trip, with final preparations. They returned safe and sound Friday at 5:30pm on August 16th. An 11-day, 5700-mile trip! One pig was brought back from the mid-west to go to Vancouver, Canada. One pig got mixed up and didn't make his destination and so will be finding a great new home in the Bay Area after touring the States!
