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 or indoor cage set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information on home made C&C cages which are much better than indoor cages that are often too small. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Meeko

Location: private boarding

Meet Meeko, a 1 year old lonely lad looking for one or more female companions. He came into our care from a massive multi animal case where they were being kept in unacceptable conditions.  Meeko has since been checked over by a small animal vet specialist and has been castrated.

Meeko is a cheeky chap who loves his grub and is usually the first one shouting in the morning when the veg truck comes by in our boarding facility! He's a typical piggy in that he's not the biggest fan of being handled but soon settles on your lap for a head stroke!

He desperately needs a home with one or more female piggies as company in a specious home (for 2 guinea pigs min 5ft x 2ft) with plenty of hidey holes and fresh hay. Indoor living is ideal for guinea pigs but as long as he has some female piggy pals he can live indoors or out.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 or indoor cage set up minimum of 157cm x 76cm (5x2 C&C grids) in size. Check out our housing guide above for more information on home made C&C cages which are much better than indoor cages that are often too small. If you have any queries please get in touch!

Maximus

Location: private boarding

Ladies! Meet Maximus. A 1 year old lonely lad looking for one or more female companions. He came into our care from a massive multi-animal case where they were being kept in unacceptable conditions. 


Maximus is a cheeky pig who enjoys being a little nosey but from the safety of his hidey hut. When we greet him each morning he will be out and squeaking to his neighbouring pigs and eager for breakfast, but as soon as we open his pen door he’ll take shelter in a pigloo leaving only his cute little nose twitching away at us. He’s caught on quick that opening of the door means being picked up and health checked but in his new home he will soon learn that food and a friendly human are worth being brave for.


Maximus was neutered at the end of November so is ready to bond with one or more female pigs. He is looking for a specious home (for 2 guinea pigs min 5ft x 2ft) with plenty of hidey holes and fresh hay. Indoor living is ideal for guinea pigs but as long as he has some female piggy pals he can live indoors or out.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eric & Pascal

Location: private boarding

Eric and Pascal are two 1 year old male guinea pigs looking for a forever home together. They were rescued from a massive multiple animal case where they were living in poor conditions with many other pigs. Thankfully the boys were in good health apart from Eric (tri coloured) having a minor head tilt which the vets believe was caused by an untreated infection, which sadly has done permanent damage. This doesn’t stop him behaving like a normal cheery pig though! Here is what their foster mum has to say about them:


“Eric and Pascal are two of the sweetest piggies I've ever met. They are so sweet and loving, especially Eric, who is always up for a snuggle and once you get to know him, although Pascal will have one too. Nothing gets in Eric's way of food, he loves his grub! Pascal’s favourite food is broccoli and kale. Eric is more partial to broccoli and his best friends with anyone holding some. The boys would make a fantastic edition to any family. They have such big characters and are such lovely boys.”


The boys are looking for an indoor home together. They are looking for a set up no smaller than 157cm x 76cm full of pigloos and fleecy beds. The boys have been neutered and are healthy and ready for a fresh start.
