Guinea Pig Adoption


We are a totally DONATION FUNDED Rescue


At Ashtead Pet Boarding we are passionate about the health and well-being of all animals and undertake to help those who, for whatever reason, need to be found a new home. We are happy to assist families with rehoming all sorts of small pets but only accept guinea pigs on site. Please be absolutely sure you are ready to surrender your pets when you contact us. We put a lot of time and effort into making them comfortable and finding the perfect new home for them – we don’t want to be wasting time that can be used to assist other animals. We ask for a minimum donation of £20 per guinea pig that is surrendered to us. Our “sanctuary” or “retirement home” is available for lonely, elderly guinea pigs when a hutch becomes free – all we ask is that they are supplied with monthly pocket money while they are staying with us.

In order to adopt from us, please download and complete the adoption application form and return it to me with the requested photos, dimensions, and as much information about your situation as possible.

We work closely with registered charities in our area and have strict adoption procedures. Our minimum adoption fee is £30 per animal – this goes towards the care & medical costs we incur during our rehoming work. Rehoming work is not easy as anybody who has volunteered at a Rescue/Shelter will tell you – we do it for love not money. All of the costs are met from donations or from my own pocket. Any animal who is sold or rehomed by us will always have a forever home here if things don’t work out at their new place.

We rely on donations to support the work of the Rescue and are always grateful for anything you can spare! We have an Amazon wish list and a GoFundMe account.
