newsflashPlanning permission granted!

On Friday 1 July we learned that we have been granted planning permission for our new insulated timber building that we are planning to construct as an extension to our existing shelter. The building will feature a bigger hay store, a laundry/kitchenette, an office and newly-fitted hutches, and will be a superb new addition to April Lodge Guinea Pig Rescue!

Find out more about our plans in our latest newsletter, Jeepers Squeakers June 2016.

We need your help to meet our ambitious £25,000 fundraising target. Make a donation, take part in one of our fundraising events, or organise your own! If you would like to help, email us at aprillodgeguinea@aol.com.

 Open Day and Fun Show 2016

April Lodge friends will know that every summer we throw open our doors for our annual Open Day and Fun Show! This year’s event will take place on Sunday 7th August and our programme for the day is now available. We hope to see you there!

You might also like to check out the photos from the 2015 Open Day – we had a blast and raised much-needed funds to support our work.


About us

April Lodge Guinea Pig Rescue was established in 2004 and we have cared for over 1700 unwanted guinea pigs in our 12 year history. We’re proud to say that over 1500 of these went on to be adopted and over 100 went into foster care. We endeavour to find our guinea pigs kind, loving, permanent homes following a poor start in life.
