Laura's first project was breeding and we have been successfully producing baby piggies for 10 years now! All breeding stock are known to us and most are our own sows, all in perfect health and condition.
You can buy a baby guinea pig knowing that we know who its parents and grandparents are, in fact, you can often view the generations here at The Ark!
We will not sell a guinea pig as a present - sorry. These are highly intelligent, fun loving animals requiring care and attention and lots of love. They will reward you again and again with their charming antics. An animal is not a toy and we would need the intended owner to view and choose their own pet. You are most welcome at The Ark to view during our opening hours.
Along with your new baby you will receive a care sheet and of course we sell all bedding and food required. All you will need is a hutch and run, as large as you can accommodate, time to spend with your new pet and bucket loads of love!
Please remember that the life expectancy of a well looked after guinea pig is up to 7 years. Please consider this when buying pets for your children.
As of May 2013, we currently have two beautiful male guinea pigs available to reserve. Brothers, currently 4 weeks old and will be ready to leave on or after Saturday 22nd June, at 8 weeks old.
Wonderful temperaments and handled daily. Both parents can be seen. Viewing welcome. Must go together. A £20, non-refundable deposit will secure your reservation and will go towards the final amount.
N.B. These guinea pigs will require regular grooming and trimming, due to their Peruvian breed and would be more suited to older children or adults.
