Our Story

Rik and Helen have now adopted a total of 13 guinea pigs, and space permitting, would have more! Spending so much time with piggies has given them great insight into the unique and spell-binding personalities of these fabulous pets!

We welcome you to our website and encourage you to find out more. If you have any questions, please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

Wheek to you soon!

Rik, Helen, Scarlett Rose and the HayPigs!®

At the core of our business is a passion and desire to change the way we view small animals as a pet. Guinea pigs are an incredibly intelligent, social animal with far more complicated welfare needs than many currently give them credit for.

Rik Cridland, MD / Ringmaster at HayPigs!® (aka 'The Guinea Pig Guy')

We are proud to be the first UK small animal accessories business to specialise in guinea pigs and proud to be at the forefront of changing attitudes towards their welfare needs. We are giving guinea pigs a voice.

Helen Cridland, Co-founder of HayPigs!® (PigMum)
