More Details:

Ada is a beautiful ginger & white roughly 18 month old piggy girl. She came into our care in February after being found abandoned in a box with another piggy who sadly didn’t fare as well and is still receiving vet treatment. Thankfully Ada only required a course of mite treatment before she was back to full health and after being on pregnancy watch (just to be safe!) she is now fit and ready for adoption! Ada is a lively character which didn’t suit her existing companion’s personality so we made the decision to separate them and find Ada a better suited piggy gang to live with.

Ada is not your typical guinea pig as she is extremely confident! She absolutely loves head rubs and will sit contently in her pen whilst you administer them! She doesn’t like being handled but will tolerate it for health checks. She would be a piggy that someone can enjoy watching play and explore but not a ‘lap pig’ as such. She’s also extremely vocal and will wheek every time you pass her pen for food, even if she already has some available…

We are looking to rehome Ada to live either with a neutered male or with a group of female piggies. As she’s so confident she may not suit a quiet single female piggy and might be best within a small group where her personality will be better tolerated! We haven’t seen any aggressive behaviour with Ada, she really is a happy go lucky soul, just a bit full on as she’s so full of beans. However, in the evenings she does like to snooze and can often be found sleeping at the part of her pen closest to her foster mum’s radiator.

Due to Ada’s friendly, outgoing nature she must live indoors for maximum attention, ideally in a large C&C set up, min. 5 x 2 cubes but larger if a group of pigs. She could live in a home with sensible, older children but an adult must be the primary carer. She is currently thriving on a diet of prominently hay with greens and a mix of other veggies, twice a day. She isn’t fed dried food and we would expect an adopter to continue this diet. If you can offer our girl a special home in your existing piggy herd (where her playful nature will be tolerated!) please get in touch. We offer a foster scheme & bonding advice for anyone wanting to try introducing an RSPCA guinea pig with no pressure to formally adopt until we know if the bond is successful.

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 adopter’s 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.
