Supporting Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue

It wasn’t the rescue I came from but I heard Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue is a fantastic rescue based in South Wales. They take on abandoned and neglected loving piggies and find them loving forever homes! They also are involved in improving conditions for piggies and supporting other rescue so truly a fab work. They are part of the Piggy Bank UK, a network of approved Guinea Pig Rescues, and volunteers that wish to assist the Piggy Bank UK Rescues with hands on help during rescue and rehoming situations; providing transport assistance, temporary accommodation when needed and general rescue support.

During July and August The Piggy Lounge will be supporting the rescue by donating a chunk of the shop sales. Mummy (aka the slave) says that the rescue is currently overflown with beautiful piggies looking for a home so your help by shopping with the Lounge or adopting would be fab! Grab yourself a piggy present in the shop and support rescue!

Look at some of the piggies currently looking for a home!

To see other piggies looking for a home and to contact the rescue go to Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue website!

Meet the Pigs at The Piggy Lounge

The Piggy Lounge is home to myself and 7 more guinea pigs and if you stick around I’ll share the latest gossip about what is happening here. I am good with gossip so expect loads of piggy news, photos and random stories. And the occasional serious discussion of care and welfare! 

Lola and Fly

This is me (the fluff ball on the left) and my husboar Fly. I was adopted by the slave last year when I was surrendered to a rescue centre after my friend died and I was forgotten at the bottom of a garden. I was a bit stinky and my coat was full of matts but I look glorious now. I do not like the brush though. Fly is my second husboar. Piggy Boy Bradley was the first but we betrayed my with Edith.

Itsy, Dahlia and Bitsy

They are the original piggies from the lounge. They were bought but the slave quickly learned that was not the way to go and I guarantee they were the first and last to be bought. Itsy is a bit poorly and needed an op last week.

Clementine, Piggy Boy Bradley and Edith

Finally the trouble threesome. I was supposed to live with these 3. I lived with Piggy Boy before and the 2 ladies were merely foster piggies. They extended their welcome but Edith didn’t like me, she keeps harassing me. Piggy Boy fell in love with her and ditched me. They’re ok, I suppose. They are all rescue piggies.
