Marias Animal Shelter



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.
