A round up of some of the lovely guinea pigs looking for a home in various rescue centres in the UK this week. Check the rescues own site to see other guinea pigs up for adoption and ways to support the rescues.
Hertfordshire/Milton Keynes – Hazelcroft Rescue
Carrie and Suki are two beautiful young girls who have been waiting for a home for a while now. We think they are stunning!
Devon – Little Pip’s Guinea Pig Rehoming
Heather and May are a happy bonded pair of young girls who have been waiting for their home for a while. The girls are a bit shy but will no doubt make someone a very happy piggy owner! We love a shy pig!
South Wales – Glynneath Guinea Pig Rescue
Brett and Randall are a awesome pair of friendly boys looking for their happy ever after. We love the cheeky faces!
Meet Rosie, a beautiful 5 year old girl now living at The Piggy Lounge!
In no way is Rosie a replacement for my beautiful Piggy Boy, who I lost last month. She came to me from the fantastic Hazelcroft Rescue as a companion for Alexander, a beautiful boy who I adopted earlier this year after a fostering period and who waited over 6 months to have a friend. As soon as I knew the foster would be a fail, I booked Alexander in for a castrate and started looking for a girlie to bond with him. Rosie is my favourite type of pig to adopt, the wonky type. Older and with some health issues, majority of adopters out there would just overlook her. But despite this Rosie is a very active girl, who still popcorns and runs about excited about her new life and some yummy veggies on the way. I should add that technically Rosie is not mine, she is a long term foster due to her health issues but in my eyes she is as mine as my other piggies. For Hazelcroft to manage her complicated health issues she will be available to sponsor from the rescues website in the next few days.
Do you foster “complicated” piggies?
Welcome to out newest feature: PotW! Piggies of the Week feature lovely guinea pigs who are currently at a fab rescue waiting patiently for their forever home. Even if you don’t live close consider sharing this post on your social networks to help spread the message and find these lovelies a fab home!
Pepe (black and white) and Pax (ginger & white) are young boys who have had a really tough start in life when Pepe’s brother got killed by a dog and Pax survived a second dog attack where he was picked up by the dog but thankfully not injured. These boys need a really experienced guinea pig home and lots of love. They are shy at the moment and need to learn to trust again.
Pepe has the most amazing long hair and Pax is a very handsome ridgeback. Do you have room in your life for these special boys?
Pepe and Pax
Aren’t they the most scrumptious boys you’ve seen in a while? They really deserve to find their forever home after their ordeal.
The boys are being rehomed by Little Pip’s Guinea Pig Rehoming, a fantastic small guinea pig rescue in Devon.
All products in this photo are handmade at the lounge.
As some of you might know, our slave Suzy has a wee little online shop which sells piggy themed gifts to humans. Some are sourced and some are handmade by her at the lounge. I am proud to say The Piggy Lounge will be present at the above event to hopefully sell some fab products and raise money for rescues but also to talk and meet any guinea pig lovers out there. There will also be a folder with details of piggies looking for a new home from a couple of rescues.
It will also be the first real life appearance of The Piggy Lounge Guinea Pig Advice Leaflet, in which I feature (not on the cover, sadly!)
If you are close to Milton Keynes or maybe passing by, come along and say Hi! (to Suzy that is, I will be at home sleeping in my fleece cozy)
