Keeping in touch

It really helps Raystede to keep you informed about our exciting work, activities and fundraising. If you would prefer not to hear from us, please tick this box.

Your home

Guinea Pigs are social animals who enjoy the company of their own kind. Therefore, we only home in pairs, unless the animal is to become part of an existing family unit.

Please note that we take particular care to ensure that where there are children under 7yrs, we will try to find the right match.

We expect you to take full responsibility for the welfare of your guinea pig(s) and this includes regular health checks and visits to the vet when necessary.

If you choose guinea pigs from us we will require a home visit.

Can you provide these minimum requirements?

This equipment may cost more than £100 and must be in place before a home visit can be carried out.

Raystede seeks to re-home all guinea pigs taken into their care. Raystede's first duty is to the guinea pigs and we try to match each animal to a suitable home where it will be well cared for and happy, for the rest of its life.

Whilst every effort will be made to give you full and detailed information on a guinea pigs of your choice, it must be appreciated we cannot guarantee it will be absolutely accurate.

Thank you for your application

Please do let us know if you obtain a guinea pig from elsewhere or change your mind so that we can cancel your application. Thank you.
