Covid Safety Policies

Please be aware that with respect to the ongoing Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, additional measures are being taken to maximise the safety of yourself, your pets and myself. Please do check in with us on social media or keep an eye on the website for the latest policies.
COVID POLICY UPDATE – 30/01/2021
WE ARE TAKING BOOKINGS FOR APPOINTMENTS FROM TUESDAY 9TH FEBRUARY ONWARDS AFTER AN UNSCHEDULED BREAK.
APPOINTMENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PIGS REQUIRING: HEALTH CHECKS, BOAR MAINTENANCE (e.g. impaction, Boys Bits cleans), NAIL TRIMS, HAIRCUTS (especially if already matted), and LICE OR FUNGAL TREATMENT.
THESE ARE RECOGNISED ESSENTIAL SERVICES FOR ANIMAL WELFARE TO REDUCE AND PREVENT SUFFERING, AND AS SUCH IT IS EXPLICITLY STATED THAT IT IS LEGAL FOR US TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE.
Since 30 September we have NOT been allowing anyone to enter the premises. Exceptions however may be made to allow owners into the hallway in severe weather – rain, wind, snow, cold – provided a face mask is worn, nothing is touched, and the 2 metre rule is observed.
VIRTUAL TOURS WILL SHORTLY BE AVAILABLE TO NEW CLIENTS LOOKING TO BOARD WITH US BEFORE WE CAN RETURN TO NORMAL.
We are accepting advance bookings for the rest of the year, including Easter and the summer holidays.
However please do get in touch with us by text or email before completing any forms to ensure we can provide the service you need when you need it!

A Little About Us…

Tiny Paws is run by myself, the sole proprietor, Laura de Stefano, at my home in Huntingdon. I currently keep 3 guinea pigs, but have lived my whole life with pets, keeping piggies from the age of 14.

Some people may remember that I was known online as Laura-CCC4, or cavy-cool-crazy, but was perhaps even better known as the mum of the 4 original HGs – Charlie, Tuppy, Lottie and Jasmine. HGs stood for Humphreys Guineas – my surname at the time. There have been many more piggies in the past 16 years and the last of the HGs passed away in May 2018.

Those piggies that continue now are the DSPs – De Stefano Piggies. You can meet every single one of the HGs and DSPs in the slideshow below; just click on the images to see their names.

Not included here is Choccie – Charlie’s original friend who we rehomed in 2003 due to bullying – and the 3 terminally ill piggies who went from being hospital boarders to living out their days with us: Peggy, Nooshi & Sid.
