Fairy really appreciates how lucky she is to have a happy, loving home here with her sisters, Marigold and Mariella. She enjoys top quality Guinea Pig food, has a beautiful bedroom, gym, playroom and garden. She has a personal specialist healthcare advisor and dentist. She has regular baths, cuddles, ear rubs and chin tickles. Her every need is catered for.
Not all guinea pigs are this lucky. Many find themselves unwanted, forgotten, abandoned, uncared for and unloved. They may become ill, but their need for healthcare is ignored. Their owner may forget to feed them regularly, to fill their water bottle, or clean them out, or allow them to exercise. Even more seriously, some piggy’s suffer physical cruelty.
Thank goodness then, for people like Wendi, Karen, Julie, Lisa and many 100’s of others who rescue, care for and re-home these less fortunate piggies. They all deserve a very big pat on the back! They selflessly attend to health issues, feed a well balanced diet, and patiently nurture them to be happy, confident Guinea Pigs ready for life in a brand new, carefully selected ‘Forever Home’ where they will be loved and cared for in the manner they deserve.
Fairy supports several Rescue Charities and Organisations in her own small way. She often makes donations from her pocket money, and lets everyone know what an invaluable service these charities and organisations perform.
Thistle Cavies Rescue is one such charity. Here is Fairy checking out their online shop!
This is a jolly good website! Look at those super Guinea Pig Badges! We already have a calendar from Thistle Cavies Rescue. It’s super!
Let’s see, how much can I afford to donate this week!
It may be a small amount, but I know that every penny will help!
I just need to check this cheque!
There! Please support your favourite Guinea Pig charity in any way you can. Aww, thank you!
For various reasons Fairy does not approve of Pet Shops or breeders selling Guinea Pigs whose only intention is to profit from selling as many animals as possible with little regard for their welfare.
If you are thinking about getting a Guinea Pig please consider adopting rather than buying from a pet shop. There are 1000’s of beautiful Guinea Pigs looking for their special ‘Forever Home’ in rescue centres all around the country.
