PostSubject: New loving home wanted for two Guinea Pigs   Tue May 19, 2009 6:15 am

Contact Details/Details of Rescue Organisation:
Does the animal have rescue back up?:
No rescue is currently taking responsibility for the guineas.

Number of animals: Two
Type/Breed: Guinea Pigs, short hair
Name(s):Ricky and Eric
Sex:Male
Age(s):Ricky - 1year, 2 months. Eric - 11months old
Colours:Ricky is brown coloured all over, Eric is Black with a brown and small white patch on his head.
Neutered: Ricky is neutered because he used to be aggresive towards Eric, although after the neutering he has became very friendly towards him, Eric doesnt require neutering due to his nature.
Vaccinated: No
Any known medical issues: None
Temperament: Friendly towards each other, they dont enjoy sharing too much, thats why there are two food bowls and bottles in their cage, but these will be provided along with the cage.
Any known behavioural Issues:They get along with each other well, and it would be best to keep them together as they are used to each other. Ricky is timid but responds well if you are gentle and patient with him. Eric is inquisitive and playful, he may playfully nip but this is only if you put your fingers near his mouth, otherwise he is harmless.They love being hand fed fruit or vegatables, they will only shy away if you are not gentle or patient towards them. They enjoy attention but aren't demanding as they have each others company and toys in their cage.
Any other information:They don't like too much noise, we have put them in a seperate room, they may squeek if they feel that the tv is on too loud etc, but thats if it is late at night. They've grown up in a household with older children, so they would prefer caring children rather than loud children.

Reason for rehoming: My daughters are going to university and I will not be able to look after them due to health reasons.

Will the group be split (if more than one animal): It will be best to keep them together, a large cage is provided with the guineas that they are used to. Ricky is neutered so will probably get bullied if he is paired with another male since he doesnt fight, similiarly with Eric, although he isnt neutered he has grown up in an environment where he isn't bullied therefore isnt aggresive.

Location: County & Postcode Wrexham LL14 4HQ
Is transport available? We could transport them locally if need be, as we have a small animal transporter.

Oh wish I could persuade Oh to let me have more animals. lol

If you ever need any help with these or if they need to go into fostering I may be able to help with that as I'm only up the road from you.

Good Luck

Hiya. What I'll do then is move this to 'rescue backup needed' so a rescue then needs to agree to take responsibility for the welfare and rehoming of the boys and then they can be placed in a foster home until their forever home comes along. I'll PM JennyC and see if she might be able to foster as she isn't too far from you. Thumb

As long as they're not here for too long and come with a cage then I dont see too much of a problem with it.

Only thing is I've got 3 cats here who are used to have the run of the house do you think they'd cope with that? My 2 cats lived with rats and gerbils so they're not too interested in them and Hugo should be leaving for his permanent home soon.

Let me check with OH - Can you give me an idea on how much they cost to feed as well?

Cheers Wink Crossed I can get around him.

Ok I've spoken with OH and he is ok with them coming for a couple of weeks only so if you use me as emergency foster for now and keep looking to try to find them a longer foster home or even better a permanent home? I don't know if that's any good.

I'm away next weekend as well so if they come here I need someone to come and feed them and clean them out!! lol

Has anyone tried NCAR for backup?

Hello, sorry to cause some confusion.
I thought your signiture meant that any foster care was availble, but this isnt an emergency so I am willing to keep them until someone contacts me to take them permenantly.
Thanks for the offer though.

No worries - If you get stuck let me know cos I can take them on for a couple of weeks. Its just that my other half doesn't like having a zoo here (No matter what I tell him about how good it is!! Very Happy )

Seriously though if you really need some help I will. Good Job

Coolio - Just a small word in your ear. My auntie's next door neighbour may like to take these on as they're always going on about how much they want Guineas.

I'm waiting to find out for definate but wil let you know ASAP.

Just to let you know, the guinea pigs have been taken to the sokel rescue and I'd like to thank all of you for your help. It was sad to see them go and we will miss them but I know they'll be taken care of. I hope they'll give their new family as much joy as they did for us.
Thanks again for help. Thank you!
