Small Animals Rock

About Us

The idea for our rescue started when Sue adopted an abandoned guinea pig named Max. He was left in an overnight dropbox outside of the Dekalb Humane Society back in 2015. He came in a cage that was filthy and Max was severely overweight. Over the next months, Max came out of his shell, wheeking and chirping thanks to his buddies, Nick and Leo.

It was this journey that opened Sue’s eyes to the plight of the small animal. There is so much misinformation out there and it is our mission to not only supply a shelter for small animals but educate the public on their proper care.

Max sadly passed away in 2017 due to GI issues but his legacy lives on through the rescue named in his honor.
