Description

Meet Coconut. Another of our single girls, currently staying here at the rescue. She is aged around 2 years old.
She is a stunning Teddy guinea pig with the wiry fur. She is a lovely cubby cuddly piggy. She gets on very well with all the other piggies staying in the rescue shed.
As she is a single, she will need to be homed with another sow, a herd of sows or a neutered boar.

Minimum cage requirements will depend on who she will be bonded with, but will start from a 4×2 C&C cage for indoors for 2 sows or a 5ft hutch outdoors.

Adoption fees and homes checks will be required before adoptions can go ahead.

We will only rehome guinea pigs in pairs or more, unless you can prove you have already got piggies then we will consider rehoming a single one. Guinea pigs must live in pairs (Boars can only live in pairs) or Sows can live in groups. They are extremely social animals and get very lonely if kept alone. If a bonded pair of the opposite sex, then we will neuter the boar before they can be adopted. Adoption fee applies £32.50 each piggie. If neutered boars will be £85

Boars are not routinely castrated. I only castrate singles to live with sows. Castrating boars does not change their behaviour like other animals, it just stops them from reproducing.
