Nutmeg, Pippin & Toffee (Approx 1yr)

  • Sex: Females
  • Colour: Various, as described in write up
  • Neutered: No – Bonded trio
  • Suitable for: Owners experienced in caring for long haired piggies or otherwise willing to learn
  • Date of birth: 2017
  • Breed: Long haired x 2 / Short Haired
  • Healthcare:
  • Healthchecked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: SB
    • The Guinea pig girls are an adorable and sweet natured trio. Pippin and Nutmeg are around a year old and they are Abyssinians (possibly Peruvians or cross). They both require regular grooming and occasional trimming of hair. Nutmeg is charcoal grey and Pippin is white and light ginger. Toffee is a short haired guinea pig and has dark brown and ginger colouring. They are inquisitive and enjoy exploring their surroundings. They love running through the play tubes and after a busy schedule of playing, they can be found chilling in their hideaways. They need time and patience to adjusting in new surroundings. They will eventually feel secure and happy. The Guinea girls would be suited to a family with older children. They will also need an indoor home of 140cm minimum due to the increased risk of flystrike as long haired piggies. 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.

Nella & Trinket (Approx 15mths)

  • Sex: Females
  • Colour: White & Ginger/Black
  • Neutered: No
  • Suitable for: Adult home with someone who can provide a lot of attention
  • Date of birth: 2017
  • Breed: Crested & Abyssinian
  • Healthcare:
  • Healthchecked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: LS
    • Nella (Abyssinian) and Trinket (white Crested)
      Here are two girls who came to us from really quite a tough situation, where they were apparently being shouted at and other than that getting very little (if anything) in the way of love or attention. Consequently they are really quite frightened of being picked up and handled, however are eating well and are very bonded to each other. They are going to need a home without other prey animals such as dogs or cats and where their owner can spend a lot of time with them, even if that means just talking to them and offering treats to start with. We think they would suit someone experienced with handling skittish guinea pigs and who is happy to take on a bit of a project. That said they are improving all the time with their fosterer and we are hopeful that once they trust you, you will feel the reward of helping a pair of really quite traumatized animals. We would ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Nella & Trinket, 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.

    • Coffee (Crested) and Biscuit (Abysinnian)
      These two much loved boys were handed in to us due the owner suffering from a hay allergy. They are very bonded and love their food, kale especially. Also sweet corn, watermelon, Brussels sprouts and the occasional carrot and red pepper…to name a few! They are chatty chaps that enjoy quietly sitting on your lap & having tickles. They love each other’s company & play tug of war with spring greens! We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Coffee & Biscuit, 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.

Ollie & Teddy (Approx 2YRS)

  • Suitable for: All
  • Date of birth: 2016
  • Breed: Abyssinian / Teddy
  • Healthcare:
  • Healthchecked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: RB
    • Ollie (blond Abyssinian) and Teddy (ginger / white Teddy)
      Here are two gorgeously chunky boys. Teddy is a very friendly and outgoing chap, quite the nosy boy who is always at the front of the cage to watch what is going on.  Ollie is the bigger but also quieter of the two and is a little more nervous but gaining in confidence, Teddy is definitely the alpha pig but both are very bonded and get on really well.  Both are excellent eaters and eat pretty much anything that is put in front of them, including plenty of hay. We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Ollie & Teddy, 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.

Stuart (Approx 6mths)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: White
  • Neutered: Yes
  • Suitable for: All
  • Date of birth: Approx 06/18
  • Breed: Red eyed White
  • Healthcare:
  • Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: RB
      • Stuart is a very lively and vocal Red Eyed White piggy, he is a good eater and loves racing around his cage and also on the floor when out on floor time.  He has been neutered and we feel he would be better suited to being bonded with a female because he is a bit of an alpha boy!  That said he is very affectionate with people and enjoys a cuddle and a snuggle once up with you.  We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Stuart, 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.

    • Barry (Abyssinian) and Stan (Query Peruvian)
      These two gorgeous boys were initially very shy when they first arrived but with a lot of handling they’ve blossomed into sociable little fellas. They used to run away and hide as soon as you called them, but now Barry will come out and see what you have for him and will let you stroke his head.
      Stan is still quite shy but is happy once he’s on your lap.Both are easy to pick up and respond well to a cuddle. They love all the usual veg and herbs, will run around the garden and chase each other, chattering and squeaking. They really have provided endless moments of joy whilst in our care. We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Barry & Stan, 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.
