Rats

Lily, Lana & Lucy

Name: Lily, Lana & Lucy
Species: Fancy rats
Sex: Female
Age: Approx 4 months
Status: Available for adoption

Lily, Lana & Lucy are a trio of young female rats who are looking for a confident adopter who is happy to continue working on their taming. They are typical young rats who were originally purchased from pet shops and so are quite nervous and not yet too keen on being handled, but aren’t bitey.

The girls can be adopted as a trio or can join other female (or neutered male) 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)
10+ rats = Savic Royal Suite XL or something custom made bigger than a Liberta Explorer!

Guinea Pigs

Marshmallow

Name: Marshmallow
Species: Guinea pig
Sex: Male
Age: 2.5 years
Status: Available for adoption from 19th July

Marshmallow arrived in our care with his brother Biscuit, however they weren’t getting on very well so unfortunately had to be separated.

Marshmallow was neutered on 7th June, so will be safe to meet females from 19th July. He is looking for a home where he can join at least one female guinea pig.

We are happy to carry out bonding for adopters or can provide advice and support for those wishing to bond at home.

Like many guinea pigs, Marshmallow isn’t very keen on being picked up and but is an inquisitive little guy so should gain confidence in his new home fairly quickly.

Minimum housing requirement: 20 square feet (equivalent to an 8×2 grid or 4×4 grid c&c enclosure)

Guinea Pigs

Biscuit

Name: Biscuit
Species: Guinea pig
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: 2.5 yrs
Status: Available for adoption from 19th July

Biscuit arrived in our care with his brother Marshmallow, however they weren’t getting on very well so unfortunately had to be separated.

Biscuit was neutered on 7th June, so will be safe to meet females from 19th July. He is looking for a home where he can join at least one female guinea pig.

We are happy to carry out bonding for adopters or can provide advice and support for those wishing to bond at home.

Like many guinea pigs, Biscuit isn’t very keen on being picked up and can be a little shy, but should gain more confidence once he has some nice friends and settles into his new home.

Minimum housing requirement: 20 square feet (equivalent to an 8×2 grid or 4×4 grid c&c enclosure)

Hamsters

Pinto

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

Pinto 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 multichamber hide.

Like most robos, Pinto is a 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: Pinto 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.
