Hours: By appointment only on Saturdays or by other arrangement
The Critter Connection, Inc., is a non-profit dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned and neglected guinea pigs. Located in Durham, Connecticut, the rescue was started in early 2004 when its founder, Cindy Kuester, realized that abandoned guinea pigs in our state had nowhere to go.
In just 3-1/2 years, The Critter Connection has rescued more than 650 guinea pigs. We also are dedicated to educating pet owners in the proper care of guinea pigs, providing valuable information about their unique dietary, housing, and health needs. We distribute care sheets when you adopt a guinea pig from us, and at adoption events we participate in. We also provide much of that information on our main Web site and other companion projects on the Web.
Periodically throughout the year, we sponsor Adoption & Care Seminars. These seminars are a great way to meet some of the rescue pigs, and get information on the proper care, feeding, and housing for guinea pigs. We also offer grooming tips, and will even trim your guinea pig's nails and show you how to do it yourself.

Awesome rescue organization
posted 7 years ago
We adopted two pigs alomst three years ago and then adopted two more a year later. We love our guys and we are very proud to have adopted, if my kids had their way we would have 20 pigs! SO many shelters focus on dogs and cats but guinea pigs need our help too, people see them at a pet store and buy them not realizing they are as big a commitment as a dog or cat, Critter Connection takes care of them all!! Way to go!!
Pros: they care for animals other than dogs and cats who usually get all the attention
