  • Suitable for: All but with adult supervision
  • Date of birth: 29.09.17
  • Breed: Sheba / American

  • Status: AVAILABLE
  • Fostered by: LL
    • Fernando, the white American guinea pig and Franz, who is a breed called ‘Sheba’, are a bonded pair. Both are very shy when being picked up, but once they get used to you they are very sweet and well behaved.  They are very fast out of the cage and love to make escape plans. They wheek when it is time for food and really enjoy their salads. They love having their coats stroked and will happily sit on your lap to watch TV or play on the floor. Their owner had to leave UK and sadly couldn’t take them with them.  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Franz & Fernando, 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.

BISCUIT & TIBBLES (APPROX 3-4YRS)

  • Suitable for: Adults or older children who can handle gently and respect their fears as prey animals
  • Date of birth: Approx 2015/16
  • 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.
