More Details:

Alex is a the cutest 20 week old teddy pig you could possibly wish to meet. He was neutered on 14th December and will be able to meet piggy girlfriend(s) from 25th Jan! He came to us as one of 100 animals rescued by National RSPCA inspectors. The prosecution was successful and we are delighted to offer this boy to some lucky lady/ladies out there! This is what his foster mum has to say about him:

"Alex is a lovely piggy lad. He has a great zest for life and is always getting excited about something! Like most piggies he loves veggie time the most and has probably the best set of lungs on a piggy I've ever heard. Cucumber is always the first he sniffs out and runs off with!
His confidence has come on lots with us, he's still a little bit of a way to go but boy does he stand his ground when food is on the horizon! Alex is a happy soul and loves bombing around and popcorning but he does need piggy company to make his life complete."


Alex needs a home where he will receive daily handling to continue the good work of his foster mum. He is used to living with primary school children and will sit on your lap for a fuss and a feed (children should always be supervised of course). He needs female piggy pals, one or more and is available for adoption now but must be kept separate until 25th January (pigs can remain fertile 6 weeks post neuter). We offer full advice on introducing piggies safely and kindly!

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.
