Guinea Pig Sanctuary. 

Guinea Pigs need rehoming for all sorts of reasons, sometimes they are just no longer wanted and sometimes very caring owners are unable to keep their much loved  piggies.
No matter what the reason, owners can be sure that their piggies will receive the very best care and if they are rehomed, will only go to homes where we know they will be loved and cared for.
 

Guys, I am overwhelmed by your response to my newsletter. I will get round to answering you all. Meantime thank you for the support and kind words.

 

Sorry, Due to ill health the Rescue side of Thistle Cavies is now closed.
 

Please Note.

We have so few piggies now and all but 3 are seriously ill and could go to Rainbow Bridge at any time in the near future. We are happy to keep them medicated and spoiled for as long as they are not suffering.

Grateful thanks to all of you who have continued to support these sick/aged little ones. Please arrange for all payments to stop by the end of Feb. For those that I know your email address I will contact you. Many Thanks.

 

 

   

   
   

                                                         

 
 
We are a small self funded  non profit making,family run rescue based in Argyll, Scotland. At present we are caring for 42 piggies. Some of these we will be able to rehome and some will live out there lives with us either because they are too old to rehome or are in need of special care.
Many of  the piggies that arrive at the rescue are in a very sad state and need a lot of care and attention.
We will never turn away a piggy in need or put a piggy to sleep just because it needs a lot of care.
