    A woman has dedicated her life to caring for hundreds of adorable guinea pigs. Saskia Chiesa set up Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue 20 years ago in Chatsworth, California. After discovering that there was no place for rescued guinea pigs to go in LA, Saskia knew she had to set up her own to save her spirit animal. The guinea pig lover expected to start slowly but she found herself with 20 guinea pigs with health problems within the first month. To follow Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue, click here:

      I have never been into small animals, but ever since I heard about the los angels guinea pig rescue, I was in love with guinea pigs, that's why I got two boys, I love them so so much and some day i want to start my own guinea pig rescue. When I first got them, I just fell in love so fast, they have changed my life, and Saskia is the person who inspired me to get them💞💞💞💞💞💞🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰😍 if you want to see my guinea pigs, they're Instagram is @guinea_pop1

      My last guinea pig passed away recently.I started taking care of my first one when my sister couldn't take care of hers anymore because her allergies got worse, and I never would have thought I would love these little rodents so much.There's just something calming about them because as skittish as they are, when you get them to trust you, they become the most curious little things. As a person with anxiety but with a raging sense of curiosity, I understand completely about them being one's spirit animal.

    21. Elisa

      My guinea pig doesn’t like other guinea pigs. I tried introducing him to others, but he started eating off one of their ears and sticking boars glue everywhere on them. It was a nightmare!!! I love my alpha and just accepted being a single boar mama

    31. Knives - Sama

      I love this woman! I adore what she does. It shows she loves Guinea pigs in her work.

    32. nope nope

      Saskia is absolutely amazing!! I love watching her YT video's, the amount of work she does for these adorable little creatures is nothing short of heroic. She has surrounded herself with an awesome team too 💛 I found her channel when I took in two guinea pigs that needed a home with no notice. I was astounded at the amount of care & upkeep needed. The first thing I did was order them a bigger cage, poor things were cramped in a hamster enclosure with no hides or toys...Then I started doing major research! They're definitely a lot of work, and it can get expensive but they're SO worth it. They're the sweetest little critters ever and they just want room to roam around, cage mates to hangout with, a quiet safe environment & fresh, yummy food lol Saskia's channel has helped me out immensely and saved me some money too! She's awesome.
