More Details:

Kim K (adult, lilac) was 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. Within a week of admission Kim K gave birth to 2 little girls. She is looking to be rehomed with her daughter Kendal. Her foster mum shares her experience of looking after the beautiful girls:

"They are both very sweet pigs. Kim K has been a fantastic mum to her two babies and they are a very cute family (you can also clearly see the resemblance).

Kim and Kendall have started to come out of their shell but they are still not yet confident pigs. They will remind you when it is time for breakfast or dinner by giving you some super loud wheeks and will even snatch a piece of pepper or cucumber out of your hand.

They still donít like being handled and will run and hide initially before coming out to see who it is."

Kim K is only a young girl, around 6 months old, and her daughter was born on 6th November. They are used to living indoors in a 5x2ft cage. With regular handling and socialising these piggies will make great companion animals for a committed adopter. Please call 0161 8820 680 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.
