Rescue Centres & GPAW


Get involved with Guinea Pig Awareness Week

During Guinea Pig Awareness Week we want to help educate current and future guinea pig owners about the best care they can give their piggies. No one sets out to give their guinea pigs away, but unfortunately this does sadly happen and that’s why it is so vital that rescues across the country are there to help.

We all know how great our cavy companions are, but we also want to emphasise the responsibility that comes with owning guinea pigs. We’d love for you to get involved too. Download your pack today to help spread the word about the proper care and attention our guinea pigs deserve!
