More Details:

Cedar (light brown) and Oak (brown and white) came into our care a couple of months ago after being rescued from a home with over 80 guinea pigs. They are young boars who had not had any socialising so we placed them in foster care where they could take their time to grow in confidence. They are around 7 to 8 months old and have both been castrated. They are very different piggies to the ones that first arrived, this is what their foster family have to say about them:

"Oak and Cedar are two cheeky boys that will let you know when it's time for breakfast and tea! They have a magnificent set of lungs on them! They love being out in their pen and zooming round it in circles. They now stay out and when we are around and waddle over for taste snacks. They also love to rearrange their cage to make their own little race track - it is so entertaining to watch them. Although they are super speedy when it comes to catching them, once you have them they soon settle down."

The pig boys have been living indoors in a 180cm x 60cm cage. It is too cold for then to go outside currently but if you have a shed, outhouse or garage that would be fine or, of course, they can be housed indoors. If you would like to offer them a home please get in touch on 0161 737 6600.

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.
