We care for unwanted guinea pigs, and rehabilitate them so we can then find the perfect new forever home for them! All our boars are neutered, this prevents any accidental breeding and as boars can be challenging to match with a friend, means a sow can be added to a single neutered boar if necessary. We never re-home guinea pigs to be a single guinea pig; everyone needs a friend! Our guinea pigs are handled a few times a day, meaning they are easy to handle in their new home, a particular advantage for children.

Do you take in guinea pigs?
Yes, sometimes there will be a short wait of up to 2 weeks – normally for boars.
Where are you based?
Nestled in the heart of Stoughton, Leicester, our rescue, affectionately known as “The Nest,” is based right in the comfort of our home. Here, we’ve created warm and spacious accommodations for our beloved rescued guinea pigs.
Can I get my boar a new friend?
If he is under 5, then he needs to be neutered and will be happier with girls.
What are your minimum cage sizes?
140cm cage or 2×4 C&C for a pair of boars or a trio (neutered boar and 2 sows).
