Jeepers Squeakers! March 2017 edition

In our first newsletter of 2017, we have a bumper edition. Read about our new extension – from a pile of rubble to the final coat of paint. Thank you to everyone who helped turn this into a reality.

Find out more about choosing a vet, bathing piggies and some interesting health issues we’ve addressed. We also briefly cover events we have coming up in 2017.

 Open Day and Fun Show 2016

The sun shone, the crowds came, guinea pigs competed in the Fun Show and the Agility Arena and at last count you helped us raise over £3,000 – with more dribbling in thanks to Dawn Ash who raised funds by having all her hair cut off!

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.
