More Details:

Chipotle (ginger and white) and Eighties Throwback (in reference to her New Romantic hair-do) are female piggies looking for a new life together after being rescued from very distressing conditions. We are unable to reveal any more information about the home of 50 guinea pigs as investigations are ongoing. They are approx 4 months old and arrived in on our care on the Eve of Christmas Eve. They were in a poor state, very underweight and had ringworm. After weeks of care they have flourished and are now in full health.

The girls are used to being handled daily, but like all piggies they like to give chase before you catch them. They are gentle girls who would be happy to live together or move in with a bigger gang of piggies or pair with a neutered boar. As they have been indoors for many weeks now so we are looking to rehome them as house piggies. If you would like to offer these young ladies a home then the minimum size of cage is 152cm x 60cm, or 4 x 2 c and c. Please call 0161 737 6600 or email (ideally with a photo of your set up).

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.
