Rescue Info

Founded in 1873, the Lowell Humane Society is one of the oldest humane organizations in Massachusetts.

In 1939 the Society purchased a parcel of land at the corner of Broadway and Pawtucket Streets and constructed a small animal shelter. Thanks to generous community support, a new larger shelter was added onto the original building in 1979 and continues to operate today.

The purpose of the Lowell Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to animals, provide care for homeless and distressed animals and educate the public about responsible pet ownership. 

The Society is a private not for profit organization and does not receive any local, state or federal funding. Operations are supported through the generous support of individuals, businesses and foundations.

Can you SHIP?

Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.

But I want THAT one!

Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
