Make a donation to April Lodge

April Lodge is a registered charity (no. 1121002) and we rely entirely on donations o rescue and rehome abandoned, unwanted, and neglected guinea pigs. We provide ongoing support to new owners, and do everything we can to ensure that the animals in our care go on to have a happy life in a new home. If they are not well enough to be rehomed, they remain with us or one of our trusted network of foster carers.

 Since April Lodge was founded in 2004, we have helped over 1000 guinea pigs, and with your help, we can continue to offer this vital service.

Each day we ensure that every unwanted guinea pig in our care has access to dry feed, vegetables, bedding and fresh, clean hay. This costs us £1.25 per week, for every guinea pig. You can help us continue to our work by making a regular donation of £5 per month.

Alternatively, you could sponsor one of our guinea pigs in long-term fostercare, and ensure that they have the best care available for the rest of their lives.
