About us

April Lodge Guinea Pig Rescue was established in 2004 and we have cared for over 1500 unwanted guinea pigs in our ten year history. We’re proud to say that over 1350 of these went on to be adopted and around 50 went into foster care. We endeavour to find our guinea pigs kind, loving, permanent homes following a poor start in life.
