Oscar from Rainbow Rescue: AVAILABLE


Here's Oscar! We don't know how old he is, but he is a very calm, quiet little guinea pig. He did have a friend but he sadly passed away a few months ago so he's now a little lonely man. He would possibly bond with another young boar or a spayed female. Lovely little man who would suit any home but a nice peaceful home with lots of attention would be great.
Contact [email protected] if you'd like to offer this adorable boy a forever home xx

Hector from Barnsley Animal Rescue Centre: REHOMED!

Meet Hector! He is currently being fostered for Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity (so a piggie up north for you lot!), and half-way through his post-neutering quarantine. Paula has written him a bit of a dating ad:

Anyone fancy taking on a husboar that is into everything, never settles down and is a dab hand at legging over and under things at a blink of the eye? I'm sure its because he needs a wifette to taper his frustration. He is living in my boar room and bites obsessively on the bars determined to meet his neighbours. I made him a large enclosure in my front room, away from the other boars as I was worried he'd damage his teeth but I then got worried how quiet he was so I did a reshuffle in the boar room today. Hector is ready now, for anyone that would like to adopt a very friendly, young, funny busy boar and has a sow or few to keep him satisfied.
Update 2/6/13 - Hector has been successfully rehomed to live with a lovely wifepig called Nellie :)

Phoebe from East Peckham Guinea Pig Rescue: AVAILABLE

This beautiful girl is Phoebe (18months-2yrs old) She came into East Peckham GPR as part of the large PEW/Himi rescue, and had been subject to quite bad conditions. She is missing an ear flap and had a very bad mites case, causing her to be covered in bites and missing lots of her back fur. She's all better now and looking for a companion to help her become a little less nervous :)

Theodore & Alvin from The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue: AVAILABLE

Time for some boys! Theodore and Alvin are both 5 months old, and have been waiting for a loving, adult home since they were old enough to be rehomed! They are living at The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue with Helen & Claire. These handsome boys were rescued as babies from neglectful conditions, but are now playful, happy and curious boys :) Theo has a slight hip deformity, but is fully mobile and it doesn't bother him at all!

Dolly & Darcey from East Peckham Guinea Pig Rescue: AVAILABLE

Meet Dolly (on the left) and Darcey (on the right), living at East Peckham GPR. Aren't these girls just the most gorgeous things? They are both approx. 6 months old, and came to Sandra as part of the Deal Piggy Bank rescue (previously featured on our website). Darcey in particular had terrible fungal issues, but they're now all better, with cheeky pigsonalities! They will need some reassurance when being picked up and cuddled, but with love and patience, they will no doubt become more relaxed ♥

Hector from Barnsley Animal Rescue Centre: REHOMED!

Meet Handsome Hector the guinea pig! He was recommended to us by his foster mummy Paula, who had this little dating ad for him...

'Anyone fancy taking on a husboar under 1 year old that is into everything, never settles down and is a dab hand at legging over and under things at a blink of the eye? I'm sure its because he needs a wifette to taper his frustration. He is living in my boar room and bites obsessively on the bars determined to meet his neighbours. I made him a large enclosure in my front room, away from the other boars as I was worried he'd damage his teeth but I then got worried how quiet he was so I did a reshuffle in the boar room today. Hector will be ready in 3 weeks... For anyone that would like to adopt a very friendly, young, funny busy boar and has a sow or few to keep him satisfied!'

And guess what? The dating ad worked! Hector is now husboar to a lovely ladypig, and has the luxury of having an entire room to free-roam in! What a wonderful life for a pig! We're so happy for him :D

Jasmine and Poppy from RSPCA Walsall: AVAILABLE

Richard from Norman Gorman's Guinea Pig Sanctuary: REHOMED!

Meet Richard from Norman Gormans Guinea Pig Sanctuary :)
He is a single entire boar, approx. 10 months in age and looking for a friend :) They haven't had much luck pairing him so far as there have been girls around - he gets a bit stroppy! But with careful planning and the right pig, he might be the one for you! And someone did find the right pig for him, as he has now been rehomed :D

Bilbo & Sam from The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

How cute are these 2?! Just 5 1/2 months of age, they've spent most of their little lives in rescue and really could do with a loving home.
They were part of a big rescue, and came out of terrible living conditions. You could hardly call it living, rather than surviving. They have been taken wonderful care whilst living in rescue and are ready to live with an amazing new family for the rest of their little lives :)

If you think you could offer them a new home, please contact Helen & Claire through either their Facebook page or their website

Ocean & Pearl from Milhaven Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

We're calling at Milhaven today for our Rescue Piggies, with this gorgeous mother and daughter pair!
Meet Ocean (approx. 10 months of age, black and white) and Pearl (8 weeks of age, DEW - Ocean's daughter! They are a beautiful pair, loving and happy.
They have now been successfully rehomed - no surprise for these beautiful ladies!

Jester & Morgan from Windwhistle Warren Rabbit and Guinea Pig Rescue: No longer available

Alice seems to have a lot of gorgeous boys in her rescue at the moment! Aren't these 2 just super handsome?
They are a pair of older gents (between 4 and 5 years old) and are looking for a forever home that will care for them for the rest of their days.
A vet nurse rescued them as they were not being well taken care of. To be fair they were not in bad condition, but their little feet are a bit sore. They are very tame, particularly Jester. Morgan is coming to trust me too. They found the changes in their life a bit overwhelming and I have moved them to the last available space in my cosy warm room. This has cheered them up immensely and they really appreciate a bit of pampering. All they need is to be cherished and loved for the special older boars they are.

Sadly we recently received the news that Jester (on the left) has had to be put to sleep due to developing a rather large tumour. This has very much upset us, but are glad to know that Morgan now has a new friend to love.

Roland & Reggie from Windwhistle Warren Rabbit & Guinea Pig Rescue: AVAILABLE

Another pair of gorgeous boys from Windwhistle Warren! I don't know why it seems to be that boys are left in rescue more often than girls, but we can always do our best to help find them homes!
Reggie is on the left, and Roland is on the right They were bought from [email protected] last summer. Their previous owner was new to piggies, a lovely lady, but when Roland developed head tilt, she got so worried as he did not get better. She was a single mum with a little boy, and took Roland to a vet, but he just did not rally. When he came here he kept falling over, and if unduly stressed now his head tilt does worsen. We put him on extra meds and it did not take long for him to respond. He runs around, jumps on on things, so he has recovered a lot. Both very friendly and tame. They need a special house home where they can have lots of space as they are very intertested in all that is going on. Reggie is particularly outgoing and always watching with those cheeky bright eyes! Roland, a little more timid, but he sings like a bird if you are lucky enough to hear it! Absolutely delightful little men.
If you are interested in adopting these 2 gorgeous boys, contact Alice
through either their Facebook page or website.

Harry & Pippa from Windwhistle Warren Rabbit & Guinea Pig Rescue: AVAILABLE

Harry (neutered male on the left) and Pippa (with the white flash on the right) are both about 2 years old. They had to go into rescue because their owners relocated to New Zealand. It broke the little girl's heart, but she was willing to send them to rescue under the condition that they stayed together. How could you separate such a lovely pair? Alice wouldn't, and that's why these two are looking for a home together :)

Harry is easygoing, and nice and relaxed, however Pippa has had a very hard time of it. Despite a loving home, comfort and a wonderful husboar, she is very stressed, twitchy and nervous. She can't seem to relax and the stress has brought on a small patch of mites. She is a very sad little piggie who hasn't coped well with the changes, and needs a secure, loving adult home (not suitable for rehoming with small children due to Pippa's terrified nature) with Harry. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt these little sweeties needs to take the time and care with them so that Pippa knows that life doesn't have to be so scary, and she can enjoy her days with little Harry.

To adopt these sweeties, please contact Alice at Windwhistle Warren Rabbit and Guinea Pig Rescue through either their Facebook page or website. You won't regret it, these gorgeous piggies will steal your heart :)

Shy Boy from Norman Gorman's Guinea Pig Sanctuary: REHOMED!

Meet this week's gorgeous Rescue Piggie of the Wheek - Shy Boy!  Isn't he handsome?
He is currently living at Norman Gorman's Guinea Pig Sanctuary in Cornwall, looking for the right home, and maybe a new name too! He's not very shy anymore! He's a handsome little thing, but unfortunately doesn't seem to like living with other boys so far! Here's what Molly, owner of Norman Gorman's, has to say about this little gent...
He is approx 18 months old and was originally named Shy Boy as he was seldom seen out of his house when he first arrived! However, that has changed and he has grown in confidence and charecter and will now come up to the bars of is cage for a tasty treat and enjoys a day out in the grass runs when weather permits. He enjoys a cuddle and chatters away to his friends. He is now ready to find his forever home and maybe even a new name to go with it?
He is an entire male who sadly hasn't had much luck with making friends: He's a naughty male who doesn't want a boy to live with!
He would be happy with a next-door neighbour, or, if you have some ladies who need a husboar, Norman Gormans Guinea Pig Sanctuary can arrange to neuter him prior to adoption. x


Shy Boy has now been rehomed, and has a lovely new name of Dougal :D

Norman Gorman's always does home visits and offers full follow up support. They have a suggested donation of £15 per piggy.  Ring Molly on 01752 851083 or email [email protected] for further details.

Comet & Cupid from RSPCA Walsall: REHOMED!

Babypigs! Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!
We're back to the gents, but these 2 are pretty super special! They are Comet (the brown piggie) and Cupid (the white piggie), currently living at the Walsall branch of the RSPCA. They are just 14 weeks old, and have been available for adoption since they were just 6 weeks old, little babies! However, what's sad to hear is that there hasn't even been 1 single enquiry about them! Not 1! How is that possible?!

These boys arrived at the RSPCA as part of a large rescue, though it doesn't mention how large, and have been there ever since. They are Peruvian crosses, which means their fur is long, and fine. They'll need regular brushing and grooming to make sure they don't end up all tangled up!
The RSPCA Walsall page specifies:
Cupid is the more confident of the 2 piggies and will come to the front of the cage for food, he is a cheeky piggy that is always up to mischief. Comet is the quieter of the 2 piggies, he is a little more reserved, however he is also happy to be handled. Comet and Cupid are
currently indoor piggies therefore we are looking to rehome them to an indoor home. If you can offer these boys the forever home they deserve please get in touch.

We thought that we had the great news that these two handsome boys had found a forever home, but sadly, a few months later, we heard that, due to circumstances beyond the owner's control, they had to be taken back into rescue.
So we tried again - and thankfully they have found a brand new (and hopefully permanent) forever home :D

Pixie & Bethan from Milhaven Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

It's time for some ladies! All of our Rescue Piggies of the Wheek have been gents up to this point, but I know that Joanne at Milhaven would love for these beautiful girls to find an extra special home.
Pixie is a 2 year old beauty, who unfortunately had a very large cyst on her back. She came into rescue with the cyst, and it was so big there was so little skin to sew back together! There was a big chance of the operation site re-opening, however with weeks of TLC and love from Jo, she's made a full recovery! She's got such a sweet character, and loves her cuddles. Who wouldn't want to cuddle that gorgeous girl?
Her best friend is Bethan, a 1 year old sweetiepig who came in as part of a big rescue last Easter (65 piggies, would you believe!) Sadly, this wonderful piggie had suffered horrible abuse, and when she arrived she was very, very ill. This was another case of loving care making all the difference. She has made a complete recovery, after months and months of round the clock care. There is no rest for rescue owners, but they do it for the love of the piggies!
Thankfully these beautiful girls have found a wonderful forever home now!

Dexter & Stanley from The Littlest Rescue

Even MORE gorgeous white boys! But these two are a little bit different to the previous males we've had. They aren't looking for a forever home together, they're looking for forever homes individually, with some beautiful ladypigs! Both Dexter (on the left) and Stanley (on the right) have been neutered and are past their post-neutering wait period. They are ready today to go to a forever home!
I'll let Sharon, the lovely lady looking after them, tell you all about them...

Dexter and Stanley arrived at the Littlest Rescue as part of the PEW/Himi rescue. We took in four boars from the rescue. Two managed to stay as a pair but it was clear after a few days that Dexter and Stanley were not going to be friends. So we decided to get them castrated and find them homes with a sow or group of sows. We have estimated them to be around 8 months old.
Although they were very nervous to begin with, they have become accustomed to humans bringing them food and constantly walking past and although they still do their best to avoid being picked up in the first place, once you hold them they both settle quickly and enjoy being stroked. Stanley in particular enjoys a gentle smooth between the ears and has relaxed enough to close his eyes, which is a huge step forward from the terrified creature he once was.
Sadly, both Stanley and Dexter have been left with injuries from their previous life. Both have incredibly chewed ears, poor Dexter having very little ear left at all. It also became apparent that their incisors had been damaged from all the fighting (there was much fighting as all the boars were being kept together and were also fighting over some missexed sows that were in with them too). The damage was such that it was effecting their eating so both pigs had some dental work where the incisors were rasped. Their molars were also checked and were absolutely fine so it seems the incisor problems were as a result of trauma. Our vet is hopeful that they will regrow and cause no further problems but adoptees will need to keep a regular eye on them by gently pulling down the pig's bottom lip to see if they are crooked in any way. It will also be helpful to monitor how much he is eating and regularly weigh him as this gives an early indication of any problems for any pig. Incisors are useful to a pig but not completely vital (its far more important that their molars are fine) and if they were to continue to regrow poorly they could be removed completely if need be as long as their food was cut up for them. We are hopeful this scenario would never take place but it is a situation that would need to be monitored.
Please do not let this put you off adopting one of these wonderful pigs. They have had such a poor start to life and are now needing their own happy ending - being spoiled in a life of luxury!
If you think you could offer one of them a home, please contact the Littlest Rescue: http://boardingbunniesathome.co.uk/rescue-and-rehoming/

Stanley has found a forever home, but Dexter is still looking for one! Can you help?

Mitchell & Scott from Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

Suzy seems to have the cutest boys in her rescue, aren't this pair of gents so very handsome? This gorgeous pair are Mitchell and Scott, Mitchell being the older dark-eyed golden roan gent at approx. 18months to 2 years, and Scott being the little crested chocolate boy at just 5 months old. They were bonded at Glynneath, after Mitchell came into the rescue in very bad condition.

Suzy is looking for an experienced home for these two boys, as Mitchell came from a poor background (part of a Piggy Bank rescue of 70 pigs from a hoarder in London). He was thought to be a heavily pregnant female by the owner but when he arrived at the rescue it was bloat and impaction, not to mention he was male! He's had no episodes since but a knowledgeable home is required to ensure that any changes are noticed and acted on quickly.

These lovely boys have now been rehomed! YAY!

Cadbury & Button from The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

Meet this week's gorgeous boys, Cadbury and Button!
Nominated by Helen at The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue, they are a new pair to the adoption list but just as in need of a forever home as any other piggies!
Cadbury is a 1 year old brown ridgeback, and Button is a gorgeous 6 week old Himalayan baby. Button came from Suzy at Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue, as he was part of a large himalayan rescue that she co-ordinated, and there just wasn't enough space there for them all. Cadbury was sadly very badly neglected in his previous home before rescue, and needs a patient and loving owner who will take their time to gain his trust and confidence. Helen has nursed him back to full health, and oversaw the bonding with his new friend. They are a beautiful pair, and are just looking for a forever home who can love them and take care of them. Helen is willing for these beautiful boys to go to a family of all ages, as long as they meet their needs and the requirements of the adoption policy.

Update 10/12/12 - These charming little gentlemen have now been rehomed! Helen sends her thanks to everyone at P4P for helping to get them a new home. x

Wilbur & Orville from Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue: REHOMED!

Aren't these two just the most adorable pair you've ever seen?
These two beautiful boys are Wilbur and Orville, Pink-Eyed Whites (also known as PEW - there's no such thing as an albino guinea pig!) aged just 4 months old. They're a pair of brothers who are currently living their baby months at Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue, and a family is missing out on this wonderful time! Guineas are such boisterous, fun-loving and excitable little babies, and watching a happily bonded pair is one of the best things :)
For some reason, red or pink-eyed guinea pigs often get overlooked for some of the 'prettier' ones. There is nothing wrong with red or pink-eyed pigs, they're no different or any less lovable - coming from an owner of a REW who was the most vocal, adorable little thing I've ever seen! Any owner will tell you they have just as much character and are just as sweet.
Suzy is getting to see just how sweet these two boys are - I've never seen boys cuddle like they do in that pigture! - and, while she's having a great time with them, she'd much rather see them go to their forever home. - which they finally have! It took a long time but Wilbur and Orville now have a forever home.
