Pascal

Location: private boarding

Meet Pascal, a 1 year old male guinea pig looking for a forever home with some female companions. He was rescued from a massive multiple animal case where he was living in poor, cramped conditions with many other pigs. Thankfully our boy was one of the lucky ones and was in good enough health to be neutered by an specialist vet. He was originally up for adoption with his pal Eric, sadly Eric recently passed away due to health complications so Pascal is more than ready to find himself a new friend or two.


Here is what his foster mum has to say about him, "Pascal is one of the sweetest piggies I've ever met, despite being a little shy at first he is so sweet and loving. Once you get to know him he’ll settle in your arms and have a cuddle. Nothing gets in his way of food, he loves his grub and his favourite is broccoli and kale. Pascal would make a fantastic edition to any family; he has such a big character and is a lovely boy."

Pascal is looking for a home with one or more female guinea pigs ideally indoors but he could live outside in a well insulated accommodation (min 5ft x 2ft with a run for 2 pigs). He was neutered on the 23rd November and can be introduced to ladies. We can offer advise on housing and bonding!

If you would like to adopt Pascal contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

George & Fred

Location: private boarding

George and Fred are two 4 year old boars who have come into our care after their owner could no longer cope with the animals they had. We have had them health checked and castrated by an exotic vet specialist and they are now looking for a forever hoe together. Here is what their foster mum has to say about them:


"Fred and George are a wonderful pair of boys. Unlike their namesakes (the famous Weasley twins) it's much easier to tell these two apart! Fred is all black with a beautiful, sleek coat and George is a handsome tri-colour piggy. George is definitely the boss in this duo; he's a confident, cheeky pig who comes running to the bars and always greets me with a loud wheek to tell me he would like more food! Fred is much more reserved and will hide away until George has sussed out what's going on.


It's obvious the pair haven't been handled much and as a result they are a little hesitant at being picked up. However, once settled on your knee they love having chin tickles and will sit quite calmly with you. The boys have really grown in confidence whilst with me and their little quirky characters have started to shine through. George loves to do zoomies around the cage and treats me to some wonderful popcorning when he's feeling particularly happy! They are also very good at moving furniture. No matter where I put their hay tray and hidey huts when cleaning the cage, within a matter of minutes they will have moved everything around to how they want it - they definitely know their own minds! This lovely duo will never fail to make you smile, I hope they find the loving home they deserve."


As Fred and George are not the most outgoing of boys they will be best suited to a quite home, ideally with people who have guinea pigs before and know how to take things at their pace. They could live with sensitive older children and as they have always been kept indoors would be best being rehomed as house piggies. The boys enjoy having plenty of space and the ideal sized floor space will be 157cm by 76cm / 5ft x 2ft.

Waddles

Location: private boarding

Waddles is a 2 year old bachelor looking for a gaggle of girls to bond with. He came into our care after his owner found themselves homeless and unable to care for him any longer.  He was originally paired with another male piggy but we have sadly discovered that they don't actually enjoy each other's company. Reluctantly we have separated the boys and Waddles has now been neutered and health checked by an exotic vet so is ready to find a girlfriend or two.


Waddles is a cheeky pig who is happy to cooperate with us for food. At the first sound of a cabbage being broken up or a broccoli being cut he’s at the front of his pen, his nose twitching away. He’ll stay still for handling as long as he isn’t manhandled too much but prefers to keep his feet safely on the floor. He’s fed a strict diet of hay and veggies only as he does have ever so slightly over grown teeth which our specialist vet believes will settle if commercial dried food is avoided.

Waddles is looking for a home with one or more female guinea pigs ideally indoors but he could live outside in a well insulated accommodation (min 5ft x 2ft with a run for 2 pigs). He was neutered on the 22nd February and can be introduced to ladies on the 5th March. We can offer advise on housing and bonding!

If you would like to adopt Waddles contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

 

 

Meeko

Location: private boarding

Meet Meeko, a 1 year old lonely lad looking for one or more female companions. He came into our care from a massive multi animal case where they were being kept in unacceptable conditions.  Meeko has since been checked over by a small animal vet specialist and has been castrated.

Meeko is a cheeky chap who loves his grub and is usually the first one shouting in the morning when the veg truck comes by in our boarding facility! He desperately needs a home with one or more female piggies as company in a specious home (for 2 guinea pigs min 5ft x 2ft) with plenty of hidey holes and fresh hay. Indoor living is ideal for guinea pigs but as long as he has some female piggy pals he can live indoors or out. We can offer advise on housing and bonding!

If you would like to adopt Meeko contact us today!

Clarrie & Fallon

Location: private boarding

Meet our lovely ladies Clarrie and Fallon. These girls were left behind by their owner after being evicted from the property. Thankfully they were found before it was too late and have made a full recovery from their ordeal. They are no more than a year old and after having a thorough check over by an exotic specialist vet they are ready for a fresh start.


The girls are not the most confident of piggies but they are still young and getting to grips with the world. They take cover in a pigloo when we first enter their pen but a whiff of some cabbage or a slice of cucumber soon gets their noses twitching and heads bobbing out. Once settled in a loving home with a routine supply of fresh hay and veg we are sure that the girls will blossom.


Clarrie and Fallon can be rehomed as a pair or could be bonded with a neutered male piggy, or even added to an established group of piggies. Ideally we are looking for an indoor set up for them, no smaller than 5ft x 2ft. For advice on housing just get in touch!
