April Lodge is a registered charity (no. 1121002) and we rely entirely on donations to rescue and rehome abandoned, unwanted, and neglected guinea pigs. We provide ongoing support to new owners, and do everything we can to ensure that the animals in our care go on to have a happy life in a new home. If they are not well enough to be rehomed, they remain with us or one of our trusted network of foster carers.
Since April Lodge was founded in 2004, we have helped over 1000 guinea pigs, and with your help, we can continue to offer this vital service.
Each day we ensure that every unwanted guinea pig in our care has access to dry feed, vegetables, bedding and fresh, clean hay. We also need medical and other equipment to help sick and injured guinea pigs and to aid smooth running of the centre. We also need toys and treats for mental stimulation and places for the guinea pigs to snuggle into to feel warm and secure after their bad starts in lives and rehabilitation from illness and injury.
“These syringes will help to administer medication to sick piggies and enable staff to syringe feed those who are too ill to eat, those who are giving up hope or have suffered abuse or trauma to the teeth or jaw and can only manage liquid feed”
