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 heís at the front of his pen, his nose twitching away. Heíll stay still for handling as long as he isnít manhandled too much but prefers to keep his feet safely on the floor.
Waddles is looking for a home with one or more female guinea pigs either indoors or out in well insulated accommodation. Heís 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 food is avoided. Waddles was neutered on 22nd February and can be introduced to ladies from the 5th April. We offer a bonding scheme for anyone wanting to adopt and bond one of our guinea pigs with an existing piggy so there is no pressure to adopt if they don't get on. We give a step by step guide and support to help you too! Please contact us for more info 0161 882 0680 option 4 email@example.com

Details: ∑ All of our rabbits are micro-chipped, neutered and vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). To ensure rabbits are protected from these common diseases, VHD needs repeating every year and in some areas Myxomatosis needs repeating every 6 months, otherwise annually. We undertake a home visit for each rabbit prior to adoption; we aim to do this within one week of each reservation placed. We ask for an adoption fee of £40 per rabbit, £75 for a bonded pair. Rabbits are highly sociable mammals and should ideally live with another. Both rabbits must be neutered regardless of their sex, this is not only to prevent unwanted litters but also promotes good health long term and keeps hormone levels to a minimum. Adopted rabbits living on their own may only be re-homed indoors as house rabbits, requiring a lot of human attention and additional stimulation. When a rabbit is to be bonded with a potential adopterís rabbit, we ask that their rabbit is both neutered and up to date with vaccinations against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). The best companion match when bonding two rabbits is a neutered male with a neutered female. In most instances, all initial bonding sessions will be carried out under RSPCA supervision to gauge how the rabbits will potentially get on together. When rabbits are to live outdoors then the RSPCA minimum size requirements for a hutch are 6ft x 2ft x 2ft - sheds are an ideal option. With rabbits requiring a minimum of 4-5 hours exercise every day, a secure run permanently attached to the hutch/shed is ideal. We are a registered charity: 232255.
