    Weʼve raised £312 to Ayrs Guinea Pig Rescue and Rehoming Centre

    Funded on Wednesday, 5th June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Hi! My husband and I owned 6 guinea pigs (5 rescues) since 2013, unfortunately due to old age and some illness over the last couple of years we have lost all of our piggies. In memory of our beautiful boys that we have lost, we want to raise money in their name for small local charity who do wonderful work rescuing guinea pigs without homes, taking care of them and finding them suitable new homes.

    Myself and my husband (and our springer spaniel Phoebe) will be doing a sponsored walk on the 1st of June this year (the date we got our very first rescue pigs). We're doing a minimum of 9 miles at Chatelherault Country Park.

    If you could sponsor us to do the walk, it would be absolutely fantastic. Thank you so very much, it really means the world.

    The charity is Ayr's Guinea Pig Rescue and Rehoming Centre, a very small charity who do wonderful work for these animals run by volunteers and the owners, people who put their love and dedication into taking care of these amazing animals. The charity is so small that they don't have a just giving page, but everything you donate through this page will be given directly to them.

    In memory of:

    Big Sid (below)

    Oddie (below)

    Rattie (below)

    Weegie and Geordie (Weegie black, Geordie white and black, below)

    Elizabeth (she gets to be in there even though she's a hamster because we lost her last year, our dear little lady, below)

    And Mackem (our last and beloved old man who passed recently).

    We love you all, our beautiful furbabies.

    (Please note: I do have chronic physical illness, if I am too unwell on the 1st of June, I WILL complete the walk the weekend after.)

      Hey guys, we've changed the venue of the walk. It's still 9 miles the same length (possibly even more than that) and it's still just as tough if not a bit tougher of a trail, it's just a much more beautiful place that we've discovered to walk and will be much more enjoyable for us. Not long to go now! The training is all on track.

      Sadly Mackem, our last old man, passed away in his sleep last night. So the walk will be in memory of all 6 of our dear piggies, now all playing together over rainbow bridge. Thanks for all the support so far - the training is going well, we're working hard on it every weekend and most nights and are now up to 7.8 miles as our record.
