More Details:

Known as 'The Clouds' this gorgeous pair of baby boars are looking for a home after the National RSPCA successfully prosecuted their owners for neglect. In total 100 animals were taken from the home, many being guinea pigs who had suffered greatly. We are presuming that these babies were born in the care of their owners, but thankfully being so young havenít suffered to the same extent as some of the adults and are fit, healthy and ready for a fresh start! Here is what their doting foster mum has to say about them:

"I have loved every minute of fostering these piggy clouds! Cirrus, the more noisy confident all white cloud, and Cumulus, are ace. I never tire watching them bomb around, popcorning and pinging into the air. They are so playful with one another and full of giddy youthfulness, and boy do they love tunnels to whizz through!

I only have to say hello and they're away wheeking for food. They have amazing set of lungs on them! They enjoy the usual piggy selection of greens and love scoffing hay.

Cirrus and Cumulus are quite content having lap time together on your knee, and both boys have been absolutely fine when I've carefully trimmed their fuzzy woolly coat. These two boys are nothing short of ace, absolute gems of piggy clouds! Whoever adopts them is very lucky as they're smashing wee chaps!"

The boys will be suitable to live with a family and are looking to be kept indoors. The minimum size cage we recommend for 2 adult boars is 5 x 2 feet, ideally 6 x 2ft so it's worth investing in this size now so they won't grow out of it in a few months! Space is very important for all piggies but particularly with boars as they can become territorial if forced to share!

Please call 0161 8820 680 option 4 or email rspcamcr_salford@btconnect.com to meet the boys.

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.
