Guinea Pig Rescue and Boarding in Richmond, London

About Us

This Little Piggy is a small family run guinea pig rescue based in Richmond, London.  We are lucky to have a small team of volunteers who help us out with caring for the guinea pigs staying with us at the rescue.

We have been rescuing guinea pigs since 2011 and founded This Little Piggy in early 2014. We are happy to have helped 1000s of guinea pigs into new loving homes over the years who come to us from a variety of different circumstances. We also offer boarding for guinea pigs who will receive our experienced care while you are away on holiday. 

This Little Piggy is a proud member of The Piggy Bank UK. The Piggy Bank UK is a collection of like minded rescues and volunteers based in the UK who all adhere to a high standard of guinea pig rescue. If we are not able to help you with your guinea pig needs please check this map to see other recommended rescues in your area.

This Little Piggy does not receive any funding and relies on donations to be able to continue to run.

Please consider supporting our work by sending us a donation via Paypal or by purchasing an item from our Amazon Wishlist. Any donation is gratefully received and goes directly to the rescue.



We are happy to look after your guinea pigs while you are on holiday or otherwise temporarily too busy to give them the love and attention they need. Boarding your guinea pigs with us will help to raise vital funds that keep the rescue running and allow us to continue helping guinea pigs in need.

We feed all the guinea pigs in our care dry food (nuggets) and a small amount of vegetables daily. Hay and fresh water are always available to the guinea pigs. Any guinea pig would receive the vet care necessary whilst they were under our care.

Boarding costs £8 per day for a pair of guinea pigs with an additional £4 per guinea pig per day. If you need long term boarding (2 weeks +) please contact us and we can discuss discounts in pricing.

Please make sure you get in touch WELL IN ADVANCE of your intended dates as we fill up quickly, especially during the school holidays!
