Rabbit/Guinea Pig Nail Clipping

Diane, one of our small furry foster mums in Grimsby, has offered her services of clipping rabbit and guinea pig nails for people who find it difficult to do. She’s asking for a donation of £3 for a rabbit and £2 for a guinea pig, all donations to go to the Ark. If you’d like her to clip your rabbit’s or guinea pig’s nails please contact us including your contact number and Diane will contact you to arrange an appointment for you to bring your pet to her. This is a very reasonable price for the service, cheaper than Pets at Home, so why not keep your pet comfortable and help the animals at the Ark at the same time?...
