Hamsters

Borlotti

Name: Borlotti
Species: Roborovski dwarf hamster
Sex: Male
Age: Approx 3 Months
Status: Available for adoption from 29th May

Borlotti came to us to find a new home as his human’s landlord wouldn’t allow animals. He has been enjoying a significant enclosure upgrade since arriving with us and particularly loves his large sand area and digging in his deep substrate.

Like most robos, Borlotti is a very speedy guy and isn’t suitable for handling by children. He is a lot of fun to watch zooming around his setup. He may be small but he certainly uses all the space!

Minimum housing requirements: Borlotti is currently housed in a 100x50cm setup so will need to be rehomed to this size enclosure as a minimum. He will also need a multichamber hide, 20cm wheel, large sand area and plenty of deep substrate for burrowing in.Apply to Adopt!

Degus

Patrick & Chewie

Name: Patrick & Chewie
Species: Degu
Sex: Male
Age: Approx 5 yrs
Status: Available for adoption

Patrick & Chewie arrived into our care separately, and as they both needed company we introduced them and they bonded together succesfully.

They are both super active, vocal and inquisitive chaps who are straight up to the cage door at feeding time and always ready for a snack! Neither are particularly keen on being handled, like most goos, but enjoy using humans as a launch pad during out of cage play time.

Patrick had his tail amputated some years ago after a fight with his previous companion in his previous home, but his lack of tail doesn’t affect him and he gets around fine. Both Patrick and Chewie love their hay, forage, and a small amount of Rosewood Meadow Menu pellets daily.

Minimum housing requirement: 100cm w x 54cm depth (or 5400cm square footprint) x 120cm height (Liberta Explorer, Savic Royal Suite 95, Little Zoo Venturer etc)

Rabbits

Marigold

Name: Marigold
Breed: Mini lop
Sex: Female (neutered)
Age: Born Oct 2021
Status: Available for bonding from 3rd May

Marigold came into our care as she had been sold to her unsuspecting previous owner alongside a mis-sexed male. Thankfully we were able to spay Marigold shortly after she arrived with us so she didn’t have to produce any babies when only a young bunny herself.

She is a friendly, cheeky and inquisitive rabbit who loves her timothy hay and forage. Like most rabbits, she isn’t a fan of being handled and appreciates being allowed to interact with humans on her own terms.

During Marigold’s neutering procedure, the vet noticed she did have some calcium sludge in her bladder, so we switched her to a low calcium diet (no pellets, plenty of hay and being careful not too feed too many high calcium greens), and she has been fine since. This diet will need to continue in her new home.

Marigold is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped, and will be ready to bond with a neutered & vaccinated male rabbit from 3rd May.

Housing requirements: 24/7 access to a minimum 60 sq ft (3m x 2m) bunny proof and predator proof enclosure. Please read our care advice pages to ensure you can meet our requirements prior to applying to adopt.

Rats

Niccy, Paris, Suzi, Becki, Sophia, Sally & Jo

Name: Niccy, Paris, Suzi Becki, Sophia, Sally & Jo
Species: Fancy Rats
Sex: Female
Age: Unknown, guesstimate 1 year
Status: Available for Adoption

These girlies came to us from a large hoarding case where over 80 rats were being kept in poor conditions in one household.

Paris & Niccy were displaying symptoms of respiratory infection on arrival and were treated with two courses of antibiotics – their chests are now clear but they continue to be mildly sneezy due to suspected scarring of their upper airways caused by previous untreated infection. They have been reviewed by an exotics vet and do not require any further treatment, but may of course be prone to future flare ups of respiratory infections (like many rats!). The other rats in the group did receive an initial course of antibiotics but have not displayed the same excessive sneeziness, although given that they all came from the same poor conditions, they may also be prone to future respiratory issues.

Sally, Sophia and Becki are friendly but prefer not to be handled too much, Suzi is fairly confident but can be a littly nippy while in the cage, Niccy and Paris are friendly but a little nervous, and Jo is the most timid of the group. These girls would be best with an experienced ratty carer.

The girls can be adopted in pairs minimum if joining an adopter’s existing rat(s), or in trios minimum if not joining more rats.

Housing Requirements: 3-4 rats = 100cm w x 54cm depth (or 5400cm square footprint) x 64cm height (i.e. Coco Large, Mamble 100)
5 – 10 rats = 100cm w x 54cm depth (or 5400cm square footprint) x 120cm height (Liberta Explorer, Savic Royal Suite 95, Little Zoo Venturer etc)Apply to Adopt

Hamsters

Heather

Name: Heather
Species: Syrian Hamster
Sex: Female
Age: Born approx 21/11/22
Status: Available for Adoption
Adoption fee: Minimum £15 donation

Heather arrived in our care at 4 weeks of age along with 4 other babies after their mother had been unknowingly purchased pregnant. She is a nervous hamster who isn’t keen on being handled, but is an absolutely lovely girl who is no trouble at all to care for. She is looking for a calm, patient, adult-only home who understands that while she may gain confidence with people over time, she may always be a look-don’t-touch hammy.

Minimum housing requirement: 100x50cm floor space, plenty of safe substrate, enrichment and a 28cm wheel.
