Guinea Pigs Looking for Homes

  • Brownie

    Name: Brownie
    Species: Guinea pig
    Sex: Male (neutered 13.01.21)
    Age: Approx 7 months

    Brownie came into our care after he and his brother had been mis-sold to his previous humans as female who didn’t realise until babies had occurred. The two brothers fell out and Brownie came to us to find new friends.

    Brownie was neutered on 13th January and will be safe to be introduced to females from 24th February (6-weeks post-neuter).

    Due to lockdown restrictions, adopters must live within 1 hours drive of our location in Sale, M33 postcode. We provide a full bonding service at our home-run rescue.

    Housing requirements: INDOORS only.
    A pair of guinea pigs will need a minimum of 20 sq ft of space.

  • Ghost & Nym

    Name: Ghost & Nym
    Species: Guinea Pigs
    Sex: Male
    Age: Ghost – approx 4 years, Nym – approx 4.5 years
    Status: RESERVED

    Ghost & Nym are a lovely pair of boys who were adopted last year but unfortunately had to be returned to us due to a change in circumstances. They are hoping to find their forever home this time!

    Nym has a long-term issue with a runny/crusty right eye, which has been checked by an exotics vet and doesn’t require any treatment other than giving it a little wipe clean. He also has age related cataracts, but these don’t seem to cause him any issues and he potters around just fine.

    Both pigs are, unsurprisingly, very food orientated and not fans of being picked up and will run away from approaching hands, but settle well for a cuddle once caught.

    Housing requirements: The boys are looking for an indoor enclosure, with at least 20sq ft of space.
