There are many ways to help out the guinea pigs at Wheektown.
Using our services
Boarding If you are going away, let us look after your guinea pigs for you. They will have a lovely time in our cozy quarters, and all profit goes directly back into the guinea pigs. Find out more here.
Pampering and health services We do nail clipping, hair trimming, bathing, and skin care with products specifically catered to guinea pigs. We conduct basic urine tests using both dipsticks and microscopes, as well as parasite and fungal treatments. Our health checks are completely free. Find out more here.
Donation of monetary goods
You can make a direct donation to Wheektown or help us out with specific food and veterinary expenses.
Let your family and friends know that Wheektown offers guinea pig services. Educate others on the proper dietary and housing requirements of guinea pigs. Above all, remember that guinea pigs are complicated creatures and do not make good starter pets.
Help out other rescues
If you are unable to help Wheektown out, don't worry! There are plenty of guinea pigs around the world needing help. A list of guinea pig rescues is available hereand, like all animal shelters, they are always in need of volunteers and donations. There is also an RSPCA in Armidale that helps out all animals, not just guinea pigs, so any non-guinea pig goods can be donated to them. Their Facebook page is located here.
