What is the Heritage Small Animal Run?:

  • A metal (zinc electroplated) Guinea Pig (or other pet) run.
  • Consists of 8 panels and 8 rods to join them together.
  • Can be made into a rectangle, square or octagon.
  • Has a bolt latch door.
  • Complete with cover! 

Where can I buy the Heritage Small Animal Run?:


  • £23.95


  • The Heritage Run arrives flat packed in a strong cardboard box.
  • There are no instructions but the run is easy to put together by simply placing the rods through the hooks on the panels. 
  • The panel and rod construction of the pen is versatile and I love that it can be made into a rectangle, square or octagon. 
  • 15 pigs
    15 pigs
  • Once constructed the run is a good size and fitted our 15 strong Girly Fluff herd without them getting overcrowded and stressed. A single pair of pigs would have a lovely time running zoomies around the run.
  • The mesh cover is half mesh and half opaque material. This functions as both a sunshade and also as a lid keeping out undesirables. It’s probably not going to keep out a determined hungry fox but should give an opportunistic cat or bird of prey a challenge. 
  • By pushing down on the rods you can drive them into the ground adding further stability and security.
  • There is a door on the pen which big enough to lean through and pick up pigs or for a child to climb through. The bolted lock is simple but effective.
  • The Heritage Run has great potential for expansion by simply buying another run and joining it on with the rods included.
  • I would also imagine you could use it as a c&c alternative inside, although high that c&c it would make a really strong sturdy cage for a couple of pigs. 


  • I absolutely LOVE the Heritage Run.
  • Safe, secure and easy to construct if you need a portable small animal run the Heritage run probably has everything you need.
