Gerbils

Renn & Maus

Species: Mongolian gerbils
Sex: Female (Renn) & Neutered male (Maus)
Age: Approx 2 yrs
Status: Available for Adoption

Renn and Maus arrived in our care having previously been housed together, which unsurprisingly led to Renn giving birth in our care. We had Maus castrated so that we could reintroduce him to Renn once she had finished raising her babies (who have since found their forever home).

Renn and Maus were quite tricky to re-bond and this did take some time, but they are now firm friends again and are looking forward to finding their forever home together in a nice spacious tank.

They are typical gerbils in that burrowing, digging and destroying anything chewable are their main life goals, but they are also quite confident and friendly, and good to handle (Renn especially so!).

Because they were quite slow to bond, we are looking for an adopter with gerbil (or other social rodent) experience for them who can monitor their behaviour carefully when settling in to their new home.

Minimum housing requirements: 100cm long x 50cm wide x 40cm high tank/tank style setup.

Ivy and Eudora came into our care with baby mice in tow. Ivy was already pregnant again as males had been present until just after she gave birth the first time, and gave birth to another litter on 29th September.

These girls will all be ready for adoption from 10th November. They can be adopted as one group, or can be split into smaller groups (minimum of trios).

Guinea Pigs

Albus

Name: Albus
Species: Guinea Pig
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: Unknown, guesstimate 1-2 years
Status: Available for bonding from 10th November

Albus came into our care from a large scale hoarding/backyard breeder situation. He is quite timid, but is slowly coming out of his shell in his foster home. He would make a really rewarding companion for someone with patience and understanding.

We had Albus castrated on 29th September, so he is will be ready to bond with one or more sows from 10th November. We are happy to carry out intros for adopters here at the rescue.

Housing requirements: Bear is currently living indoors so will need an indoor home (at least until next spring/summer). For a pair of guinea pigs, we require a minimum of 20 sq ft of space on one level, more for larger groups.

Guinea Pigs

Zebedee

Name: Zebedee
Species: Guinea Pig
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: Unknown, guesstimate 18 months
Status: Available for bonding from 27th Sept

Zebedee came into our care from a large scale hoarding/backyard breeder situation. He is quite timid and doesn’t like being handled, but has started getting into a routine and now wheeks for his food at breakfast and tea time!

We had Zebedee castrated on 16th August, so he is now ready to bond with one or more sows. Intros can be carried out by us here at the rescue.

Housing requirements: Zebedee can live indoors or outdoors (providing the enclosure is entirely predator proof and provides adequate protection from the extremes of weather). For a pair of guinea pigs, we require a minimum of 20 sq ft of space on one level, more for larger groups.Apply to Adopt

Bear came into our care from a large scale hoarding/backyard breeder situation. He is very timid, but is slowly coming out of his shell. Like many guinea pigs, he does not like being handled or touched but this may improve over time. He would make a really rewarding companion for someone with patience and understanding.
