|OCCH operates solely on the effort and dedication of our volunteers. The people who care for the pigs on these pages are volunteers devoting their own time, energy, and funds towards helping rescued animals find forever homes.
You can help in many ways, most of which will only take a small amount of time out of your day.
OCCH puts on educational and fundraising events around Los Angeles and Orange Counties throughout the year. We need volunteers to:
Another way that you can help is by transporting guinea pigs who are in high-kill shelters to the safety of the rescue or foster home or become a shelter scout.
Two volunteers clip a guinea pig’s nails while shelter scouting after taking his photo for our website. This increases their chances for adoption.
And you can always invent your own way to assist. If you have always wanted to help animals but are not able to take them into your home, there are many ways that you can make a lasting and vital contribution to these homeless animals.

Adoption Specialists may conduct home visits after accompanying an OCCH volunteer with experience on other home visits. Good people skills and knowledge of guinea pigs are necessary. Sometimes will receive calls from people looking to surrender their guinea pig(s).
