More Details:

Meet our gorgeous pair of piggy boys Jelly & Guppy! These lovely boys were born in our care after their mum was rescued from a home where breeding had got out of hand. They were born on the 3 December, making them 5 weeks old. They will be ready for adoption as a pair from the 14 January. The boys need an indoor home, ideally a C&C set up min 5x2 but ideally 6x2 ready for when they become adults.

What can we say about Jelly & Guppy - they are utterly perfect! Their foster mum is completely in love with them both but can't wait for them to find a forever home where they will be the centre of someone's world! Jelly (agouti and ginger) is the bigger and more confident of the two, whilst Guppy (lilac and ginger) is happy to follow his brother! Both love their food and have thrived on a diet of veggies and hay.

The boys love nothing more an exploring together and they have lots of hidey huts, beds and tunnels to play in and jump on. They tend to come to life in the evenings and can be heard charging around, popcorning, rumblestrutting and chasing each other in play. They sound like a herd of elephants and it's amazing to watch! For this reason the boys need lots of space, indoor store bought cages are often too small so we'd recommend a C&C set up, you can buy these via various sites like this one online: https://candcguineapigcages.co.uk/product/standard-2-x-6-grid-cage/

Both boys are very vocal, particularly if temporarily separated, they really are dedicated to each other. They are healthy, thriving little chaps and will make great companions to a lucky adopter. Please note that the branch will pay for the boys to be neutered at roughly 6 months of age, we do this to make sure that if they are bereaved in future they can be easily bonded with a female piggy and not be left alone. Jelly & Guppy are very lively and still rather small (it's more like holding a big hamster when they are this age!). They can live with sensible children but must be the responsibility of an adult.

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.
