Guinea Pig Rescuers Speak:

Every rescuer has their own story, the path that led them into rescue. A strong belief that these gentle creatures deserve a better chance at life through education and rehoming plays a large part in their decision to rescue guinea pigs. Some no longer actively rescue but their stories may serve as an inspiration to others who would help homeless guinea pigs.

If there is a rescue nearby, consider fostering guinea pigs to lighten the load.
