More Details:

Fuzz and Woody are a lovely pair of piggy boys that were born in our care. Their motherís were part of 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.

The boys were born on New Yearís Eve, making them just over 5 weeks old. Although they are the same colour they have quite different coats. Fuzz is a texel, so he has fuzzy, wavy hair and Woody is a smooth coat with a little white dot on his nose!

Theyíre typical baby pigs that dart all over the place and get excited over the littlest things. New hay, a clean cage or fresh veggies are always greeted with several zoomies or popcorning (when guinea pigs are happy and excited they do little jumps known as popcorning!). Woody is a bit of an adventurer; he likes to climb and jump on his cage furniture and generally get up to mischief. Fuzz likes to be in charge and will often be first to the food pile! The boys make a great team and are becoming quite the snuggle monsters and will huddle up together in your arms and relax.
They are looking for an indoor home together. We recommend a C&C set up, you can buy these via various online sites, for more info see our housing guide.

Please note that the branch will pay for them to be neutered at around 5 months of age (either full costs at branchís vet or up to £60 each at the adopterís vets), we do this to make sure that if bereaved in future he can be easily bonded with a female piggy and not be left alone. We are taking enquiries now so you can come and meet them and they will be ready to leave their foster home once old enough on the 11th February. Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet them today!

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.
