SPONSOR A PIG
Want a guinea pig but don't have the time or space to commit?
Would you or someone you know love to make a difference to an animal's life, but are unable to to keep animals?
Why not sponsor one (or more) of Avalon's resident guinea pigs? Sponsorship makes a wonderful present for anyone who wants to help a guinea pig but is unable to offer them a home. Your money will go towards their care.
Why sponsor a guinea pig?
These piggies are unable to be rehomed for a variety of reasons which may include long term and complex needs that are best met at the rescue.
Many of the piggies have been rescued from Melton Mowbray Market. Here the piggies are put up for auction with little regard for their health and wellbeing. The piggies that come to us from Melton are usually underweight, malnourished, suffering from severe mite infestations, fungal infections, abscesses and injuries and covered in their own excrement. Most of the females are pregnant and show signs of excessive "back to back" breeding. Piggies that come to us from here have often had such a horrific and traumatic start in life that they are unable to be rehomed except to very experienced handlers. Instead these piggies are able to live out their years at the rescue.
Paypal transactions are the safest and most convenient way for you to donate to us. You can set up regular monthly amounts, or make one off payments, both in a secure environment.
PIGGY WASTE PICK UP
Piggy's produce a lot of mess on a weekly basis (and we mean a lot). Not all of the waste can be picked up by our local services and we rely on people to pick up and dispose a couple of bags in their own bins. If you can help please get in touch. The piggy's love to keep clean!
VOLUNTEER & FUNDRAISE
Volunteers are always needed to help with fundraising. If you have any useful skills you think could help the pigs or would like to raise funds for the piggy's we would love to hear from you.
Introduce A Friend
We regularly have around 200 guinea pigs needing forever homes, so if you know someone who needs some loving company send them our way and we'll see what we can do.
