Finding it hard to care for your guinea pig?

Share via

We know you want the very best for your pets, but sometimes life can be unpredictable and you might find yourself in challenging situations beyond your control. This might make it difficult for you to care for your guinea pigs, but Wood Green is here for you and your beloved pet. 

We have a number of support services available including behavioural advice, medical help or guidance with training. Whatever the issue may be, we can help you. 

How we can help you

Need to find your guinea pig a loving new home? 

Life is full of unexpected surprises, but we’re here to listen to your problems and offer a solution. If you feel you need to give up your pet, we can support you through the next steps. 

There are three different services for you to choose from which will hopefully take the pressure off. 

To ensure every pet gets the best possible care whilst waiting for a home, we can provide care in:

  • Our world-class rehoming centre in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. Our dedicated, experienced staff will give your former pet everything they need while we search for a new owner

  • A foster home. Some pets cope better in a different environment, so we've assembled an amazing team of volunteers who offer pets extra comfort and attention in their homes

  • Your home, where we can provide support to you and your pet whilst our rehoming experts find them a new home.

Support from a Behaviour and Training Specialist 

Whether you need advice on how to care for your guinea pig, diet, accommodation or even how to support their behavioural needs, our Behaviour and Training Specialists can offer free, expert pet advice. Get in touch with us online, over email or on the phone.  

Maybe you'd like to learn more about guinea pig and their needs. If so, we have a number of virtual and digital workshops and classes available on a range of platforms. These classes have been designed to provide further support for pet owners. Find out about all our current workshops and classes by visiting our dedicated page. 

Pet Collection service 

Our Pet Collection service has proven to be a lifeline for many struggling owners in North London, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire who may need to give up their pet. If we aren't able to come to you, there are other options. Please don't hesitate to get in touch. Call us on 0300 303 9333 or email pet.support@woodgreen.org.uk.
