About Us

Saving Small Animals in Southern California for Over 25 Years

Wee Companions is San Diego's only small animal rescue, in business for over 25 years. We take care of guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats, mice, rabbits and hamsters. Our mission is to rescue and find permanent homes for small animals in need. We are dedicated to educating the public about proper care of small animals and supporting their journey from adoption to life long care.

Our Mission

We rescue guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and other small exotic mammals from shelters, places of abandonment, and from persons relinquishing their pets. Whenever possible, we offer a safe house to these animals, irrespective of age, temperament, or health status.


These animals will receive veterinary care and socialization in the hopes that they will be placed in a "forever" home. Animals given Sanctuary Status will be placed in our Foster Care Network to live out their lives in comfort and with love. We are also focused on educating foster parents, school children and others on the care, feeding and prevention of unwanted litters of these animals.
