Bertha & Sally

Bertha and Sally are a lovely pair of female guinea pigs looking for a new home together after their owner moved house and decided not to take them with them. Bertha is a big caramel coloured girl with pink eyes and is roughly 18 months old. Sally is a white and tan piggy who is 2 years old.

Sadly the girls have found their ordeal very stressful which has caused them to chew fur off their front legs but thankfully this has stopped and they seem much happier now they have settled in with us.   The girls have obviously been used to being around people in the past, as although they scattered when you first open their pen door they will pop their heads round the corner and come out if you offer them veggies. Bertha will settle in your arms if you pick her up and is good about having her claws clipped and teeth checked. Sally is more of a wriggler but will tolerate a quick cuddle!  

The girls are looking for a new forever home together in a good sized indoor enclosure (min. 5ft with a run or additional space to exercise); they must stay as a pair but can be bonded with a single neutered male. If there are children in the home they would be suited to children aged 8 and over.

Rex

Rex is big, fluffy, hunk of a guinea pig. He was rescued from a home with over 70 guinea pigs which were being used for breeding but thankfully Rex is in good health and is ready to find a new loving home.

Rex is an Abyssinian cross tri coloured pig. He's been neutered and is roughly 1-2 years old. He is a confident boy who loves his food and loves being told what a handsome pig he is (we suspect he is responsible for a lot of the pregnant females we took from the same home!). Sadly, Rex hates being brushed, he is a very vocal big who will squeal the second he feels the brush on his back. He will tolerate his head being brushed but whoever adopters this little guy will need to be committed to keeping his fluffy rear end tidy! Rex is obviously used to being around people as he doesn’t run away unless you actually go to scoop him up, but even then he will sit still in your hands for a quick cuddle.  

Rex is neutered so is looking for a home with 1 or more neutered females (he can be paired from 23rd April). He is looking for a home indoors in a good sized indoor enclosure (min. 5ft with a run or additional space to exercise).

Ronan

Ronan is a sweet little pig with a distinctive cream coloured coat. He was rescued from a home with over 70 guinea pigs which were being used for breeding but thankfully Ronan is in good health and is ready to find a new loving home.  

Ronan is only a young boy who can be a little shy around people. He can be coaxed out of his pigloo with some treats but he does need an owner who will be patient with him and help him get used to being handled. Ronan was in a trio of guinea pigs when he was first rescued (but had to be separated due to incompatibility) so we are confident that he will quickly bond with some female piggy friends.  

Ronan has been neutered so can be bonded with 1 or more female guinea pigs (he can be paired from 23rd April). He is looking for a home indoors in a good sized indoor enclosure (min. 5ft with a run or additional space to exercise). He will not be suitable for children under 10.

Monty

Monty is a neutered male Teddy cross breed guinea pig with wonderful agouti and white markings.

Monty came into our care from a home where many piggies were being kept in poor conditions. He is clearly not used to being handled much, but with an experienced, confident owner will undoubtedly blossom.

He was neutered on the 12th of March and will be ready to be bonded with another female pig 6 weeks from that date (the end of April). Please note that male guinea pigs remain fertile up to 6 weeks post op! Monty could live side by side with a female/s until the 6 weeks is up and then face to face bonding could start.  

We will have a more detailed description of Monty once he has settled in and we've got to know his character better.

If you would like to adopt Monty contact us today!
