Lego & Gino (2 years old)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: White, Tri-colour
  • Neutered: No, bonded pair
  • Suitable for: All
  • Date of birth: 30.8.17
  • Breed: American, Teddy
  • Health: Healthy
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: LLO
  • Lego, the white American guinea pig and Gino, who is a breed called ‘Teddy’, are a bonded pair. Both are very shy initially but once they get used to you they have very sweet temperaments. They love a little scratch on the head and under the chin and enjoy a little run around by chasing each other playfully. They’re very good eaters and excellent communicators at feeding time! We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt the pair, 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.

Cookie & Coco (3 years old)

  • Sex: Female
  • Colour:White & Tan, Brown
  • Neutered: No. Bonded pair.
  • Suitable for: All
  • Date of birth: 2016
  • Breed: Abyssinian
  • Health: Healthy
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: MK
  • Meet these two gorgeous girls, Cookie (hiding from the camera) and Coco, who aren’t neutered as they are a happily bonded pair. They are probably Abyssinian piggies but hair isn’t that long so they don’t need grooming. They are very chatty and friendly guinea pigs once they have settled in. They’re a bit shy at first and like to hide. But they love to snuggle up together and will happily sit on your lap. They absolutely love their veggies and will happily take them out of your hand. They originally came from a home with children so would be suitable for families. We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt the pair, 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.

Lia & Flo (4 & 3 months)

one_half]

  • Sex: Females
  • Colour: Brown
  • Neutered: No – bonded pair
  • Suitable for: Adults or older children who can gently handle and socialize young piggies.
  • Date of birth: March/April 2019

[/one_half]

  • Breed: Self
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: RH
    • Lia and Flo are an auntie and niece pair.  Lia came into us as a baby pig along with Flo’s mother and 3 others, after being found dumped in mop buckets in the street back in April.  Unfortunately Flo’s mum Jennie died 3 weeks after giving birth, probably because she was little more than a baby herself.  It has taken a while for the girls to gain trust and be considered ready for adoption but they are very bonded to each other and will be rewarding for the right person to watch and help them grow into well adjusted adults.  Lia is the more dominant but Flo is a very chatty young lady, both eat well and enjoy time out exploring.  Given the traumas these girls have both already been through, an indoor adult home is preferred but sensible older children who can demonstrate patience and kindness and who will not get bored are also more than welcome.  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Billy & Bertie, 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.

  • Breed: Rex

  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: JC
    • Meet Marley, he originally came into us with his brother Pip last year but had to be separated as they didn’t get on.  Pip has since found a new home with another male and Marley hopes for the same.  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.. 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.

Alvin (Approx 2-4 years)

  • Suitable for: All
  • Date of birth: Approx 2015-2017
  • Breed: Abyssinian
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: RC
    • Alvin came to us as one of a pair but they had to be separated due to Alvin being bullied.  There is a discrepancy regarding his age as we were told two different ages by the original owner but his physical condition indicates him to be 2yrs rather than 4.  He is a gorgeous boy, very inquisitive and wanting to know what is going on at all times.  He has a great personality and is very friendly, like many guineas is not all that keen on being held but once he is on a solid surface like a table or lap he is happy.  He can be rehomed to bond with an existing male piggy.  We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Alvin, 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.

Wallace & Gromit (Approx 8 months)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: White
  • Neutered: No – bonded pair
  • Suitable for: Experienced adult owners able to care for long haired guineas
  • Date of birth: Approx 10/2018
  • Breed: Abyssinian / Texel
  • HealthcareTo be health checked (vet check to be paid for by ARC)
  • Status:  Available
  • Fostered by:  LL
    • Here are a gorgeous pair of young boys whose life chances were turned around when they fortunately found, having been dumped in a rubbish bin…  The boys seemed absolutely fine, VERY well looked after now and in terrific condition.  Gromit (the extra fluffy one) has a cloud on his eye query hay poke which he is currently being treated for, but no other obvious medical issues and as direct rehome piggies will receive a full exit health check prior to adoption via ARC.  They are 5 months old, not neutered, get on very well together and eat well.  They are both SO tame and friendly, absolutely gorgeous.  Gromit is the smaller of the two and is just a mass of hair, Wallace weighs in at 995g which is very good for their age.  Experienced adult owners preferred as we do not know how being dumped in a bin may have affected them, also they require grooming and the odd hair cut (don’t think they are fussed if it’s bad!).  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Wallace & Gromit, 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.
