    • Tess and Claudia are two adorable female guinea pigs. They are possibly between 1 to 2 years of age. They settled in very quickly and enjoy relaxing in their hideaways. Tess is curious and fairly outgoing, Claudia is more shy and reserved.  They both, however love being stroked and sitting on a lap.  They are short haired and Tess is dark brown, tan and white.  Claudia is black, white and tan.  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Claudia and Tess, 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.

    • The 3 girlies are Amber, Pearl & Twix. They are about 7 months old now and are gorgeous tri colours. They have very loud squeaks when they know it is food time and Twix is definitely the boss, she is the first to the food and the bars of the cage when food is coming. They enjoy running around outside their cage. They are still a bit nervous to be picked up and approached as they are young but they are getting used to it and once you are sitting holding them they seem to enjoy it and they stay.  Picture left to right: Twix, Amber, Pearl.

      We ask for a donation of £45 to adopt the girls, 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.

Coco & Raven (2 years)

  • Sex: Male

  • Date of birth: TBC
  • Breed: Self
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: HT
    • “Coco and Raven are two bonded male pairs who love being part of a family, both are well behaved but sometimes mischievous boys.  Coco is a little reserved but when he gains familiarity will happily come out of his cage and demand food!  Raven on the other hand has no qualms in making his feelings known and will happily nibble away at his hand fed vegetables.  Both boys love Romaine lettuce, broccoli and sometimes cucumber, their love of Romaine lettuce is borderline obsessive, if you give them a bag full it will not last long 🙂

      Both boys will come out their hiding places at the smell of food, Raven will start tapping the cage and Coco will start drinking from the water bottle, when the family are at the dinner table they will love nothing more than joining you for the meal, also when they are around people they recognise both will come out their hiding place and relax whilst listening to the hustle bustle of family life.  Coco and Raven will both be sorely missed but due to a change in residence they are unable to move with us.”

      We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Coco & Raven, 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.

Guinea pigs

  • We have guinea pigs coming in all the time, and many are rehomed before they even get to the website! So please contact us if you are looking for a pair of guinea pigs, or need a single guinea pig to live with a single guinea pig of yours. We ask for a donation of £20 per piggy, or £35 for a bonded pair, which helps to towards our veterinary costs as we rely totally on donations. Thank you. You can email your guinea pig request direct to guineapigs@animalrescueandcare.org.uk
