Meet Pascal, a 1 year old male guinea pig looking for a forever home with some female companions. He was rescued from a massive multiple animal case where he was living in poor, cramped conditions with many other pigs. Thankfully our boy was one of the lucky ones and was in good enough health to be neutered by an specialist vet. He was originally up for adoption with his pal Eric, sadly Eric recently passed away due to health complications so Pascal is more than ready to find himself a new friend or two.
Here is what his foster mum has to say about him, "Pascal is one of the sweetest piggies I've ever met, despite being a little shy at first he is so sweet and loving. Once you get to know him heíll settle in your arms and have a cuddle. Nothing gets in his way of food, he loves his grub and his favourite is broccoli and kale. Pascal would make a fantastic edition to any family; he has such a big character and is a lovely boy."
Pascal is looking for a home with one or more female guinea pigs ideally indoors but he could live outside in a well insulated accommodation (min 5ft x 2ft with a run for 2 pigs). He was neutered on the 23rd November and can be introduced to ladies. We can offer advise on housing and bonding! Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet him.

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.
