Ashtead Guinea Pig Rescue




We are a not-for-profit DONATION FUNDED Rescue


At Ashtead Guinea Pig Rescue 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. All our veterinary support is provided by Kriek and Gibson Vets in Banstead.

Please note we are an independent, home-based, donation-funded Rescue. We are not supported by any other local Rescue but we do work closely with other like-minded Rescues in the area.

We rely on donations to support our work in the Rescue and are so grateful for any goodies from our Amazon wish list or financial contributions 🙂 Please be aware that we do not receive any donations via any other person or any other Rescue. Don’t be scammed! If in doubt contact me directly!

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.
