Deana & Dean

Location: private boarding

Deana and Dean are a delightful male and female pair of piggies that have come into our care because their owner's dog was not leaving them alone and she feared for their well-being. Dean has been castrated so there is no chance of baby piggies. We estimate them to be around 2 years of age and they absolutely adore each other.


Deana (named after a Nick Cave song) is the bigger of the two and is a gorgeous brown and lilac Sheltie. Dean is a little smaller and has locks to die for and is also a Sheltie. They are easy to handle and will make suitable family pets but an adult must take responsibility for their grooming needs and checking on their well-being.

They can live as a pair or be bonded with existing placid females. Ideally, they would like an indoor home in a large C&C set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Bugsy & Waddles

Location: private boarding

Bugsy and Waddles are two handsome gents looking for a new home after their owner sadly became homeless. The boys were signed over into our care and after a thorough health check by an exotic vet they were given the all clear for adoption.  

The boys haven’t been with us long but we have quickly got a good understanding of them. Bugsy is a cheeky chap who will happily investigate anything that comes close to his face with his teeth, but thankfully it doesn’t hurt, it's just curiosity! Waddles on the other hand is quiet and well behaved and no doubt despairs of his brothers antics. Despite being called Waddles, it’s actually Bugsy who is the larger pig and Waddles is actually a very slim lined black and white boy. The pair are 2 years old and complement each other well. They enjoy tucking into spinach leaves and rumbling at us during health check day.  

The boys are looking for a home as a pair with plenty of holes and tunnels to explore! They are on a veg and hay only diet and would be best suited to an adult only home as Bugsy is a gentle but affectionate nibbler & licker! Ideally, they would like an indoor home in a large C&C set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Tiana & Aurora

Location: private boarding

In November we admitted 10 guinea pigs from a multi-animal cruelty case and here are 2 of the lovely little females from that group. Meet Tiana and Aurora. Tiana is around 2 years old and is black and white whilst Aurora is about 14 months old and has a cute ginger patch on her face. After having a thorough health check by an exotic vet specialist they are ready to find a new home together.  

We decided to name our female piggies after Disney Princesses as they were rescued from dreadful conditions but have managed to stay strong and heroic throughout their ordeal. They are a little skittish when you open their pen door, knowing that we are going to scoop one up, but out of arms reach they enjoy scuttling around, chomping on hay and squeaking back and forth to one another. The girls are only young so have time to learn that not all humans are bad and with gentle coaxing and plenty of bribery with a cucumber treat we are sure they will gain confidence in their new home.  

The girls are looking for a new home together; they can stay as a pair or be bonded with a neutered male guinea pig seeking some company. Ideally, they would like an indoor home in a large C&C set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Patch & Rolo

Location: private boarding

Patch and Rolo are 2 gorgeous tri-colour boys looking for a new home after their owner had to flee domestic violence and couldn’t take them with her. They are 2 years old and have been health checked at our exotic vets and been given a clean bill of health.  

The boys are sturdy chaps who enjoy their grub. Patch is particularly friendly especially when food is around and it is rare to see him not munching on something! Rolo is a little shy at first and often takes shelter behind a pigloo until Patch has given him the all clear. Both boys behave remarkably well during their weekly health checks and never kick up too much of a fuss when its nail trimming time. Patch will be happy in most home environments as he takes everything in his stride and Rolo will be happy as long as he always has his big brother Patch to watch over him.  

The boys are now looking for a new owner (as a pair only) to squeak their demands at! Ideally, they would like an indoor home in a large C&C set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Merida, Mulan & Jasmine

Location: private boarding

In November we admitted 10 guinea pigs from a multi-animal cruelty case and here are 3 of the lovely little females from that group. Meet Merida, Mulan and Jasmine. The girls are between 8 -14 months old and after having a thorough health check by an exotic vet specialist they are ready to find a new home together.  

We decided to name our female piggies after Disney Princesses as they were rescued from horrendous conditions but have managed to stay strong and heroic throughout their ordeal. They are a little skittish when you open their pen door, knowing that we are going to scoop one up, but out of arms reach they enjoy scuttling around, chomping on hay and squeaking back and forth to one another. The girls are only young so have time to learn that not all humans are bad and with gentle coaxing and plenty of bribery with a cucumber treat we are sure they will gain confidence in their new home.  

The girls are looking for a new home together; they can stay as a trio or be bonded with a neutered male guinea pig or females seeking some company. They need a good sized enclosure ideally indoors no smaller than 157cm x 76cm. Check out our housing guide above for more information. If you have any queries please get in touch!

If you would like to adopt the girls contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.
