Guinea Pigs

At Mossburn Community Farm we rescue and rehome misused, abused, unwanted and neglected animals.  Why not foster your favourite animal? You will get:

  • A personal letter from your chosen animal, with their own signature!
  • Your own personalised Certificate of Fostering
  • The chance to visit your new friend at Mossburn whenever you like.

One years foster is just £2 a month.
It’s quick, it’s easy and it really, really makes a difference to their lives.

£24.00 for the year.


You will see we have now lumped our guinea pigs together, this is because so many elderly guinea pigs are sent to us that they can die off quite quickly, which is a shame for anybody who has chosen a particular guinea pig to foster. Guinea pigs come to us through social services, the police and sometimes carers, apart from those where we are approached directly by the owners. In some cases they are simply unwanted, but in others they are very neglected. Unless we are 100% sure of the sex of a new guinea pig they are rushed to the vet for sexing before being put in male and female groups. Sometimes male guinea pigs will fight and have to be separated out – these usually go to live with rabbits. We hope you particularly like the photograph of our girls, who could not have been posed better had we tried! You can almost hear them discussing what’s going on and why they are there! Gill the photographer said on completion of the session that they actually look like one of those awful draught excluders!
