Pinnygigs is a small Guinea Pig Rescue located in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. We take in neglected, abandoned and unwanted piggies from the local area, caring for them until new loving, forever homes can be found. Please contact us if you are looking to adopt a pair of guinea pigs as we usually have several who are awaiting new homes. We do not re-home guinea pigs on their own but we can often help with bonding and finding a suitable companion for you to adopt if you already have a lone guinea pig. Please also contact us if you are no longer able to care for your own guinea pigs for any reason. We can usually take them in, depending on available spaces and as we have a structured adoption procedure in place this helps to ensure that all piggies are adopted out only to suitable, loving new homes.
The Animal Sanctuary Wilmslow is run by the Humane Education Society. We rescue and rehome a variety of animals within our local area.

Marias Animal Shelter tries to help as many animals as possible. The main animals that come into the shelter are rabbits and guinea pigs, either due to them becoming abandonded, mistreated or unwanted. The shelter became a registered charity in 2012 and is usually able to help around 300 animals a year. We do have a successful adoption programme and always ensure that adopted animals are home checked prior to leaving the shelter. Education is very important to us. Guinea pigs and rabbits are misunderstood. Manufacturers continue to make houses for them that are too small. Guineas pigs need special diets and not all places explain this to new owners. We always welcome questions from people and also have students learning with us at the shelter.

Merrypigs Guinea Pig Sanctuary is a rehabilitation and rehoming centre in Staffordshire. Merrypigs is run by a qualified RHA (rodent health advisor) and studying Rodentologist. Probably the littlest guinea sanctuary in the world, that means we have less pigs – and so more time to give to each one! Piggies will be accepted (dependant on space) under any circumstances and in any condition! These little ones will be brought back to health if needed, and acclimatised to handling before being found a perfect new forever home, as well as being bonded with a new friend if they are alone. Guinea pigs, after the excitement wears off, often become forgotten childrens pets. This mini-sanctuary aims to help a few of those piggies as well as all the others in need of a new home! Every pig is looked after as a member of our family. They are spot cleaned daily with a full clean weekly, and are provided with unlimited fresh hay to nibble on and burrow in! Piggies are regularly health checked and each one has some time in a run daily, to exercise and have fun, although piggies all live indoors. If a pig needs to see a vet, then it will happen as soon as possible – ill piggies are treated accurately and correctly, and kept in separate cages from the others to avoid the spread of disease. You can be sure that any pig you surrender to us will be loved and cared for, and found the best new home through us. Any pig you adopt will be very lucky indeed to have a lovely new home!
