From rehoming, to rescue to holiday boarding at Avalon we are always busy ensuring ours and your guinea pigs get the best care possible.
Guinea pigs are SOCIAL animals and require interaction with their own kind to live long, happy lives. We do not actively encourage neutering (unless for health reasons) as it does NOT affect guinea pig behaviour. Boys can be bonded with other boys, just as girls can be bonded with girls
We have had lots of guinea pigs come to stay with us and we have really enjoyed looking after them.
We are always taking bookings, so if you would like your guinea pigs to come and stay for their holidays, then please do get in touch.
EDUCATION & EVENTS
We regularly attend schools and events aimed at educating children and families, as well as bringing more attention to Cavies. We use Facebook & Twitter to keep everyone up to date on our events
Often, to be able to rescue some of the guinea pigs we hear about, we have to deal with some selfish/unsavoury/clueless people. Many just don't realise what they're doing wrong, unfortunately many know exactly what they're doing. We try to help them all.
When any guinea pigs arrive, we give them a general health check. We decide who needs what treatments and where the priorities are.If there are mums and babies we try to establish which babies belong to whom, and make sure they're reunited as soon as possible, if that’s appropriate.
