Guinea Pig Care Services
In an effort to support the guinea pigs and guinea pig parents all across Southern California, we offer the following guinea pig care services for a small donation.
All Boarding and Grooming fees go back to supporting our rescue pigs.
Hog Hotel Boarding

We can take care of your fur babes while you are away! Please fill out our online Boarding Request Form here with your requested dates and the number of pigs you would like to check in. We will contact you to confirm and discuss your guinea pig's specific care and accommodation needs.
Rates: start at $10 per day for a single, $15 per day for a pair and $20 for a trio
Pick up and drop off service can be arranged for an extra donation.
Anti-Fungal Bath for Ringworm
Guinea pigs don't usually need baths but sometimes special circumstances like ringworm, dermatitis or a particularly rough entry or stay at the animal shelter prior to adoption will necessitate grooming intervention from humans. Long-haired guinea pigs can be prone to matting and may need regular trims.
We offer the following specialty baths listed below, or a basic bath and blow-dry for a $30 donation.
Nail trims and boar cleanings need to be done every 4-8 weeks. We can show you how, or do it for you for a $15 donation.
Contact Us here to request grooming services.
