Ferne currently provides a home for 17 guinea pigs and these little guys all have a large enclosure with plenty of enrichment. For this reason, we do not usually rehome our guinea pigs as we believe moving them from the Sanctuary would not benefit their wellbeing.
They live in several groups with lots of company, which guinea pigs love! Their enclosures provide them with lots of places to hide when the Sanctuary is busy. This is a natural behaviour for little prey animals
Guinea pigs do not produce their own vitamin C so they require large quantities of daily fresh fruit and vegetables, if you are nice and quiet you will see them having a good old munch, otherwise they will hide away in one of their many hiding places!
