BISCUIT & TIBBLES (APPROX 3-4YRS)

  • Sex: Female
  • Colour: Both tri-coloured
  • Neutered: Bonded pair – but Biscuit (black faced piggy) spayed 23 July due to ovarian cysts
  • Suitable for: Adults or older children who can handle gently and respect their fears as prey animals
  • Date of birth: Approx 2015
  • Breed: Self
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: AVAILABLE
  • Fostered by: DY
    • Biscuit & Tibbles are two lovely ladies that have been through quite a few moves in the last year having been fostered, adopted, returned to us through no fault of theirs or adopter, then moved to a different foster home after original fosterer hospitalized following a serious accident.  Biscuit also had to be spayed over the summer due to developing 2 massive ovarian cysts, not long after that she somehow managed to fracture her incisors (now regrown).  So it is after a long recuperation that the girls are once again ready for adoption.  Biscuit is the more daring and confident, Tibbles is just a sweet girl.  Both love their food and are happy for cuddles once settled.  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Biscuit & Tibbles, which helps towards the cost of caring for future guinea pigs. We offer rescue back up for life and would always be happy to take an animal back into our care should the adopter’s circumstances change.

  • Meet Marley who originally came into rescue with his brother Pip last year but they didn’t get on so were separated. He is a gorgeous piggy, very inquisitive, happy being handled although sometimes a little fidgety, loves his food and is very noisy and loud when he feels he should be fed. He is quite small for a male but still, he and his new pad mate will need a big cage/set up of approx 140cm minimum so they don’t annoy each other and 2 of everything so they don’t fight over hideys/food/water. ** PLEASE NOTE: Marley is currently in post neuter window and still recovering so is not available for adoption until 25 November 2019, whereupon he can be rehomed to live with females also.  We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Marley, which helps towards the cost of caring for future guinea pigs. We offer rescue back up for life and would always be happy to take an animal back into our care should the adopter’s circumstances change.
