ACS is a registered non profit guinea pig rescue org managed entirely by unpaid volunteers across Australia who are truly passionate about the welfare of guinea pigs.


Have you ever considered adopting a homeless guinea pig? ACS Shelters always have guinea pigs looking for loving new homes.

ACS accept private surrenders, ill, injured, neglected and found guinea pigs into our care.

Please visit our website to view current adoptable guinea pigs or for further information about adopting or surrendering.


We offer comfortable and safe boarding for your guinea pigs while you are away. All guinea pigs are cared for to high standards and given a quality diet while in our care.

Please see our website for further information about our boarding program.

What else?

You are able to purchase quality ACS gourmet guinea pig meals, fresh hay, beds, bowls, water bottles and other guinea pig supplies at the shelter. Regular orders can be arranged.

All proceeds go directly to the animals in our care.
