Hank is a big chunky boy who is super inquisitive and will happily take a treat from your hand.

  • 17 adults and babies were collected in early August from one home. All have been split due to fighting. Wilbur is one of the 17. He is approx 3-4 months old, he’s a shy but friendly inquisitive boy. Due to his terrible start in life, he’s a little wobbly and has a slight head tilt; this does not effect him and he has a good appetite. Everything he’s experiencing is for the first time. A home where his main carer is an adult would suit him best. Older sensible children who would be gentle with him would also be ok.

Harry & Potter (approx. 14 months old)

  • Suitable for: All
  • Date Posted: 09/08/18
  • Breed: Rat
  • Healthcare:

  • Status: Available
  • Fostered by: JO
  • These rats have come into our care after their owner felt they didn’t get enough attention. Potter is a Rex rat. Sweet, fluffy and inquisitive. This gorgeous boy loves chin strokes and kisses. He likes being touched but squeaks when picked up as he is not used to being held. There is no reason why he could not get used to this and learn other things. He’s a very cuddly boy and could easily become a great companion rat to the right person. Harry is a Black Cap Fancy. He will except strokes after a bit of encouragement and food from hand after checking it out first. He too is not used to being held and may try to jump but he is still very friendly and is very close to his brother and cuddles up to him for love and comfort.

  • Fostered by: JM
  • These poor boys were found dumped in a cardboard box in Hyde Park and were then taken to a vet. They’re very friendly considering what they’ve been through. They are very settled and curious. Easy to handle and have seen no aggression just play boxing which is normal and the cuddle up to sleep in the hammock. They were yellow and brown when we collected them but the yellow is now white! They are not interested in fruit and veg treats but this may be something to do with the rotten food with maggots that was found in their box. They’re being treated for mites at present and have their last injection in the week commencing 13th Aug.

Their breeds are a Berkshire and very pretty hooded dumbo. Very gentle and curious, happy to be stroked. Still a bit timid but we don’t think it will be long until they are running around.

  • Dale was advertised for free online along with her sister but we contacted her owner who then handed them to us for rehoming. Sadly the girls have fallen out but still enjoy each others company from separate cages so we hope they can go to the same home. They are both super friendly but aren’t keen on being handled; their fosterer can easily put her hand in but can’t manage to get her hand underneath to hold them but we hope this will improve with time. They are very inquisitive too.

Nathan & Lucy (3 years old) RESERVED

  • Sex: Male & Female

  • Suitable for: Adults
  • Date Posted: 24/05/18
  • Breed: Degu
  • Healthcare:
  • Healthchecked
  • Status: RESERVED
  • Fostered by: CB
  • Nathan & Lucy have had a tough start in life after they were sadly mis-sexed by the pet shop which resulted in a litter of babies who all died. Since then Nathan has been neutered. The owner had to give them up due to not being allowed pets in rented accommodation. Lucy is the more friendly of the two and is a cheeky, inquisitive girl. She absolutely loves running on her wheel. Nathan, on the other hand, is shy, but is coming out of his shell and will run up to his fosterer to greet her. They will happily take a treat and allow a stroke and some interaction. We’re optimistic that with the right home and attention their behaviour will improve.
