Meet our lovely guinea pigs!
If any of the guinea pigs below catch your eye please read our FAQ and then get in contact with us so we can arrange for you to come around to meet them in person. If you are looking for a specific age/breed/sex/temperament we may have more guinea pigs than the ones listed so please email or ring us and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We do keep informal waiting lists for rehoming so don't hesitate to get in touch.
Follow us on facebook for more pictures and updates on the guinea pigs!
Wilbur & Dave (boars)
Wilbur (3 years) and Dave (1 year) are a laid back and well bonded pair of boars who are looking for their forever home.
James & Bond (boars)
James and Bond are only a year old and are very active young boars looking for a new home. They don't tolerate sitting still for long for cuddles (yet) but as they get older and used to all the attention they will calm down.
Jack is a single 1 year old boar looking for a friend. He hasn't had the best start at life and we think he may have been dropped prior to coming to us. He is learning to trust people again but he needs a home who are happy to continue working with him to build up his confidence again.
We handle all introductions here at the rescue - Jack is not neutered so if you have a single boar looking for a companion and think you could offer Jack a home please get in touch as we can arrange a time for them to meet!
Munch is a single sow under a year old.
We handle all introductions at the rescue so if you have a sow or neutered boar and are interested in offering Munch a home please get in touch so we can arrange a time for the piggies to meet!
Taylor & Warren (boars)
Taylor and Warren are two young boars, less than a year old, looking for a new home. They haven't been well handled previously so are a little nervous about being picked up but will settle down for a cuddle once they are out.
Elvis & Gilly (neutered boar & sow)
Elvis and Gilly make a lovely couple of piggies who were bonded here at the rescue. They have been with us for a while now and have both settled down and enjoy coming out for a cuddle!
Due to Elvis' long hair we want this pair to be re-homed to an indoor only household (although access to a run on grass for the summer is a great bonus). Preferably his new family have kept guinea pigs before but they must be willing to put in the additional time required for this breed.
Our Sanctuary Piggies
Some piggies stay with us indefinitely due to a number of reasons. If you are interested in sponsoring or fostering them please do get in touch and we can discuss the details.

Hazelnut & Chocolate (Sows)
Poor Chocolate has a type of cancer and as such will remain with us until we feel her quality of life is suffering. At the moment these girls are lovely and lively with no indication that anything is wrong!
Stevie, Robbie & Bert (Boars)
Stevie, Robbie and Bert are a trio of older boars. Stevie has been with us for a long time and was quite a sickly piggy when he first arrived at rescue. Unfortunately, this means he has been left with a slight head tilt due to some lasting damage caused by an ear infection. This doesn't seem to affect him, although we keep a close eye on his behaviour and health.
Robbie and Bert came to us as a pair of older boars and were unfortunately in not the best of health. Bert's teeth are not in good condition and need continued monitoring and attention by the vet. Due to Robbie's poor diet prior to living with us he doesn't have the best digestive system and can become rather impacted. With his new, improved diet this is slowly improving but will likely never go away completely.
Buzz & Woody (Males)
Buzz and Woody were brought to us by a concerned member of the public who spotted them being sold by a pet store. Buzz is what is called a 'lethal' piggy which means he was poorly bred, we think he is both blind and deaf and he has a poor immune system. Woody has severe cataracts which means he has very limited vision. These two are best to live with us as sanctuary piggies as it is likely they will need medical attention throughout their lives. They are very sweet boys and we are very happy to welcome them to the family!
Due to her complex medical issues we have asked for the wonderful 'The Excellent Adventure Sanctuary' to take her on as they have lots of experience with special needs piggies. While we would absolutely love to keep Florence here and offer a sanctuary place at This Little Piggy our vet is simply not specialised enough should her condition deteriorate.
