Yesterday I went to Cavy Corner Guinea Rescue for a visit. I did a fundraiser a few weeks ago and wanted to see what amazing work they do first hand. I was absolutely blown away!
Sue and Winston run Cavy Corner from their home. With Skinny Pigs, Baldwin and Piggies that require special attention in lovely cages around their front room and living room, I thought I had stumbled upon my idea of paradise....then they shown me to the Piggery. A large outhouse with around 30 cages filled with hay and some of the most beautiful pigs I've ever seen. I have found my happy place!
I wish I could tell you all of their stories, how they came to be there and the amazing care they receive now. They clearly love each and every one, know all of their names and likes/dislikes and each personality. There were laughs, tears and lots and LOTS of cuddles. Here are a few pictures of the piggies and some cuddle snaps :)

What a great day you had. It must have been really hard hearing the stories of the piggies. All the ones in the photos are beautiful. I hope they all find homes soon.

Thank you :) that's Alfie, he was the sweetest piggy ever! Such a kissy and cuddle monster! When he flopped down like that, my heart melted. He reminded me so much of my Gus that I instantly fell in love. received_10155248336540478.jpegreceived_10155248336760478.jpeg

Looks like a special day and cuddle overload! Cavy Corner is a great place, isn't? I hope I will be able to see it again when the new "Caviary" house is done!

Wow what a fabulous day you must of had! I saw the photos on Facebook and saw how happy you looked! :) I would love to be a regular volunteer there, but with my nursing course its hard to get there often enough. :(

All the piggies in the photos look so lovely. Alfie must of felt very comfy with you. :)

Sue & Winston are wonderful people and I have taken my trio to Cavy Corner several times for Max to have boar hygiene - and for them to have their nails trimmed.

I'm really sorry that I can't make it to their next fun day as I am going to the Birmingham meet.

@Dindypig Sue and Winston are the nicest people in the world! They made us feel so welcome and let us snuggle their own pet piggies as well as the cavy corner bunch :) I wish I lived closer, I'd be volunteering all my free time there!
