    Our rescue is full to bursting again with unwanted guinea pigs after we took in 38 earlier in the week taking our numbers up to over 50.
    we will not rehome for breeding,a home check may be needed and an adoption form must be filled in

    this is the 38 as they arrived,they are now split into small same sex groups

    OMG 38! Did they all come from the same place?

    How awful.

    There are some lovely looking piggies there - hopefully you will find forever homes for them all soon.

    Keep up the good work :)

    Hi !

    I have comfortable homes for guinea pigs. I currently have four adorable guinea pigs. Please contact me to discuss a new home for your many piggies.

    Oh my God they are just beautiful. I would certainly take some from you but I am too far away I'm afraid, (Gloucester)
    I do so hope you find homes for them all.

    i'm trying to access your website but when i click the link (on here and from google) i seem to get a strange orange and black website with different links that dont seem to go anywhere. im confused because everyone is talking about seeing the guinea pigs on your website, is it just me that can't get to it!?!?

    im wanting to get 2 female guinea pigs (babies if possible) and would rather rehome/adopt than visit the pet shop! do you have any available at the moment? ideally i would like spiky ones rather than the smooth coated.

    this is a very old topic, over 3 years old, the OP hasnt been online in close to a year, the website link is no longer active, the domain is parked with a host and doesnt link to any active website.

    chances are the rescue has probably shut down :(

    Hi
    My son is 6 next month and he is going mad for some guinea pigs for his birthday. I think it will be a good age for him to learn about responsibility, obviously with a bit of adult supervision.
    I was thinkingg about getting 2 rescue pigs, have you any available at the moment?

    Regards

    Andrew

    Hi I know this is an old advert but wondered if you are still rescuing piggies. If so I would be interested in having some from you. I am in Aspatria, near Carlise in Cumbria so would like to know where the nearest rescue is to us. We will be using the bus so it will need to be near the 300 bus route.

    Thanks Dawn
