Who We Are
Vision & Mission
Serenity Guinea Pig Rescue is a small animal rescue located in Hamilton, Ontario. We focus on all small animals but mainly guinea pigs. SGPR was opened in November 2017 and has remained a safe haven for all small creatures since.
The owner of SGPR, Sarah Jervis opened SGPR after witnessing and hearing many horror stories about guinea pigs and bunnies being re-homed online. She seen post after post of defenceless scared animals being re-homed without a thought, many crammed in tiny or filthy cages. That November she stepped into her first hoarding situation, Saving over 30 guinea pigs. Since then she has turned her home into a guinea pig safe haven and created an amazing network of foster homes. We have had a few members join our team since then, Tammy Lucas & Emily Jiang. Both ladies have gone above and beyond to be a voice for those in need. Emily is now a mother to two very handsome little boys and no longer actively working with our rescue but we thank her for all of her wonderful and deticated help over the years.
To this day we have helped over 100 animals and hope to see that number continue to rise. Small animals are often forgotten as pocket or starter pets when they are really complex loving fluff balls. We firmly believe here at SGPR that each and every animal is important and worthy of a happy safe life, One without fear of mistreatment or neglect.
Sarah "Feather" Jervis takes care of a large number of fosters herself in a large dedicated room. Everyone is housed in C&C or midwest cages and the females are happily housed together in a herd. You can book a time to visit to rescue, We only ask that you bring 20$ worth of veggies to ensure you have enough veggies to treat everyone on site. Currently we house around 80 guinea pigs.
It is our mission to prevent harm, educate, and fight for animals everywhere
We receive no government funding and rely on the kindness of you and your friends, to help save and care for these rescued animals. With your help we are able to help countless animals, bringing them back from sickness or just helping them on their travels to their forever homes.
