More Details:

Pamela (agouti/ginger and white) and Pippa (fawn and white) were signed over to RSPCA care from a home that could no longer cope with the volume of guinea pigs they had ended up with after mis-sexing led to over-breeding. The girls were terrorfied of their own shadow and it was truly distressing to see how scared they were, especially Pippa.

Over the last few weeks they've settled into their foster home thanks to a predictable, regular care routine. Pamela now sits out in her tunnel wheeking for her veggies and is often joined by Pippa. They are handled every other day at present and they are improving with this and even catching them is less of a trouble.

The girls adore each other and need to be rehomed together. They have been given a clean bill of health and have had two ultrasound scans 4 weeks apart and are not pregnant. The girls are approx one year old and just need a patient, caring owner to help them develop further in confidence and build trust in you. They will make a rewarding companion animal for a quiet home.

The minimum size housing for two pigs is 5ft x 2ft or 4 x 2 c and c cage. Please get in touch if you can offer the girls a quiet home indoors together. Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet them!

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.
