Bubble (Approx 11 months)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: Agouiti / ginger / white
  • Neutered: No
  • Suitable for: Adults and older children as young and very fast
  • Date of birth: 2018
  • Breed: Smooth coated
  • Healthcare: Healthchecked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: RB
    • Bubble is every bit as cheeky as he looks in this photo,  He is a nosy, noisy boy who loves his food, sitting on top of his log roll and and being out and about where he is particularly good at stair climbing!  He is friendly chap and though like most pigs he will run when you try to pick him up, with a bit of gentleness and once you have him up with you he is a real snuggle pig.  He can be rehomed to bond with an existing male piggy, or we may try bonding him with another piggy in rescue called Dave. We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Bubble, 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.

Dave (Approx 12-18 months)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: White
  • Neutered: No
  • Suitable for: Adults and older children
  • Date of birth: 2017 / 2018
  • Breed: Red Eyed White
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: LL
    • Meet Dave…  He is a really lively and noisy boy, constantly on the go and into everything.  He loves other guinea pigs and will chatter away endlessly.  He is much tamer now, he lets me stroke him in his cage without running away and is happy to be picked up, although he won’t stay still on your lap for long, he wants to be off exploring.  We think he is about 1 year to 18 months old, he came from a  rescue situation in Wales where he was living with a rabbit.  In our opinion he would suit a home with children aged 10 or over.  He was quite spooked when he came in to us, having been housed in a small cage with a big thumpy footed rabbit and very young excitable children may frighten him.  He has a really sweet nature, likes loads of hay but isn’t that fussed about some fresh food, although he likes dandelions and fresh grass and carrots.  He can be rehomed to bond with an existing male piggy, or we may try bonding him with another piggy in rescue called Bubble.  We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Dave, 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.

Nemo & Spud (Approx 10 months)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: Black / White & Tri-Colour
  • Neutered: No – bonded pair
  • Suitable for: Experienced owner – Adults or older children who can handle skittish piggies
  • Date of birth: June 2018
  • Breed: Smooth coated & Abyssinian
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: JC
    • Nemo & Spud are two lovely boys that are happy being handled,  Nemo (Smooth coated multi colour) is always out and about, inquisitive and keeping an eye on what it going on.  Spud is a little more skittish and tends to hide more, although if there is food around he will stick around for that!   Due to Spud’s more skittish nature we feel the boys are best suited to experienced adult owners or older children who are confident in handling skittish guinea pigs.  We ask for a donation of £35 to adopt Nemo & Spud, 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.

Oreo & Flash (22 months)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: Black & Tri-Colour
  • Neutered: No – bonded pair
  • Suitable for: Experienced owner who can provide a large set up of 140cm minimum
  • Date of birth: June 2017
  • Breed: Short haired cross -breeds
  • Healthcare: Health checked
  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: EJ & NL
    • Flash is the muti-coloured boy and Oreo the black with beige flecks.  Flash is the more dominant one and a very talkative boy who will walk up to the cage and take veggies out your hand.  Easy to catch for cuddles and very inquisitive.  Oreo is a little bit quieter and shy but once you catch him he will happily sit on you being stroked.  Both boys love a run around as much as possible and can sometimes become irritated if they’re left in their cage for too long.  Definitely think they are more suited to an experienced owner as they occasionally brrr and rumble strut around each other when they want something the other one has!  They 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 £35 to adopt Oreo & Flash, 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)

  • Sex: Male
  • Colour: Brown
  • Neutered: No
  • 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 5-6 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:  P (direct rehome)
    • 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.

  • Breed: Short haired / Self
  • Healthcare:
  • Healthchecked
  • Status: RESERVED
  • Fostered by: RH
    • Although still young and skittish, Cherry is a piggy that now likes cuddles (having learnt to trust her fosterer after coming into our care as a very young mother pig) and having a run-a-round in living room and Kitchen.  Very quick, so some skill needed in catching her again(!), meaning she is more suited to an adult home.  For a slight girl, she has a big mouth when it comes to meal times, and is curious around other Guineas.  Her favourite foods are spinach (in moderation due to high calcium content which can cause sludge and bladder stones), broccoli stalks, carrots, cucumber, grapes, romaine lettuce, coriander, parsley, and dandelion leaves. She doesn’t drink water at all so needs moisture rich foods, cucumber is particularly good.  We ask for a donation of £20 to adopt Cherry, 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.

Nutmeg, Pippin & Toffee (Approx 2 years)

  • 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.

Stuart (Approx 10 months)

  • 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 is a piggy that appreciates space and opportunity to run about and is a stair climber!  He has been neutered and we feel he would be better suited to being bonded with a female or two (maybe more!) 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.
