What is GPAW?

Guinea Pig Awareness Week, or GPAW, is a week of activities dedicated to improving the health and welfare of guinea pigs. We will be bringing you a week of exclusive content over on our GPAW Facebook page and Instagram page. Join our Excel guinea pigs Berry and Bramble throughout the week as we explore what it means to be a guinea pig owner and share some top tips, uncover interesting facts and, of course, post lots of great photos!

Endorsed by the British Veterinary Association and British Small Animal Veterinary Association, we will be covering the five welfare needs of our guinea pigs.

Plus, our partners will be helping us along the way. For this jam-packed week of activities, we have partnered with four animal welfare charities: Blue Cross, PDSA, RSPCA, and Wood Green
