Our Mission Statement

At Piggie Poo Rescue, our mission is to be the “go to” resource for cavy education in our community.  

  • We want to change the way the world thinks about guinea pigs by making people aware
  • We want guinea pigs to have long and happyhealthy lives.
  • We want to help piggy parents enjoy their pets for many squeak filled years.  
  • We want to ensue all guinea pigs have the opportunity to receive good care through the process of educating their families about their needs.

Over the last decade, we’ve learned that the only real way to change the world is through education. Our community has shown us that what it really needs is a resource for education, more than a place to get a new pet. Our organization has amassed a wealth of expertise that we genuinely want to share with you! 

And we're dedicated to learning more every day.

Thank you for your support!

Our Vision Statement

Arizona’s Piggie Poo Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 federally tax-exempt non-profit corporation dedicated to preventing cruelty to animals through education. 

Piggie Poo offers a variety of educational opportunities for guinea pig families and the general public with partners like the Arizona Humane Society, Phoenix Animal Care Coalition, Scottsdale Libraries, Mesa Libraries, Scouts of America, 4-H and more.


We host tons of activities and events for guinea pigs and their families at our facility in North Phoenix, like Festivals and Pageants, Summer Educational Programs and free Educational Expos. 


Through our efforts, Piggie Poo instills in adopters and the public a sense of responsibility that corresponds with the joy of owning a guinea pig.


For our residents, we provide an environment where they are safe, well cared for and loved until adopted. Their happiness, needs, and well-being are our utmost priority and we are never in a hurry to "send them out the door".


For those pets that are deemed unadoptable due to health considerations, age or behavioral concerns, we provide a permanent sanctuary to help them conclude their lives in comfort
