Providing life-enhancing care for Guinea Pigs with extra needs!

About Us

The Excellent Adventure Sanctuary enables guinea pigs who have ongoing medical issues to live a normal, happy life, whilst they receive the veterinary care they need. The Sanctuary specialises in the management of dental issues and the results achieved have been amazing!  Keep up to date with our work here.


The Sanctuary is funded purely by public donations and fundraising.  As you can imagine, our outlay for veterinary treatment is far higher than that of a traditional guinea pig rescue, coupled with the fact that there is no income gained from the animals in our care as they are permanent residents.  

How you can help... 

Places at the Sanctuary can be offered and the programme of supportive care is individually tailored to each piggy's needs. 

The approximate cost to TEAS when caring for a poorly pig is £5 per day.  This is made up of housing, feeding, supportive care of the pig and also transportation to and from vet appointments.
