More Details:

Addison and Arizona are two beautiful female agouti guinea pigs. They came into our care following a large intake of pigs from a property where mis-sexed piggies had led to lots of unwanted pregnancies, leaving the owners unable to cope. We guesstimate them to be around 12/18 months of age.

The girls were put on pregnancy watch and moved straight into foster care. Here is what their foster carer has to say about them:

“Addison and Arizona were terrified when they first came to me and it was clear they’d had very little handling as Arizona tried to leap from her carrier to avoid being picked up. The girls soon settled though and started to really enjoy the comforts of being indoor piggies and having fresh veggies every day! One month after their arrival, Addison gave birth to two beautiful guinea pigs and Arizona followed suit a month later, giving birth to a whopping four babies on New Year’s Eve! The pair were doting mother’s and both did a fantastic job at raising their babies, especially Arizona, who as a young and underweight guinea pig herself had the tricky task of feeding four hungry little pigs! Now their mothering duties are finished, the girls are looking for a home where they will be pampered and showered with attention. The difference in the girls from when they first arrived is just so lovely to see. They fly out of their hides when they hear you enter the room and they’re up at the front of their cage, standing on their back legs to see if you’ve brought them some tasty treats! They still evade capture but once they’re caught they will flop over on your knee and enjoy your company and a chin tickle!”

They would make good additions to a family with older, sensible children. The girls can be a little skittish but fine once happily settled on your knee with food! We recommend an indoor C&C set up for all our piggies as they provide lots of space and are cheaper than store bought cages (see our housing guide for more info: http://www.manchesterandsalfordrspca.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Guineapigguide2019-Housing.pdf ). Min. size housing for two guinea pigs is 5x2ft but bigger is better! Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet the girls!

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.
