April Lodge was founded by Valerie Savage in 2004 and became a registered charity in 2007. From small beginnings the charity has grown, and recently moved from its original home in Sandwich to new premises in Eastry.
With the support of charitable foundation Support Adoption for Pets, the charity was able to construct a new shelter for the animals in our care, and our new premises had their official programme on 11 August 2013.
We have enclosures for 64 guinea pigs in the shelter
We have enclosures for 9 in the ‘hospital’ (our welfare clinic)
There is space for 15 at our retirement home in Herne Bay
Current max total in our care at any given time at the charity premises is up to 73 (88 including our retirement home)
