Below are all the guinea pigs which we have at the moment for sponsorship. Please read their description to find out more details on them.
If you wish to sponsor one of the them, this can be done in our shop here
Polly is a lovely roan guinea pig. Sadly many roan guinea pigs have underlying problems due to inbreeding.
Polly has a tilt to her head and often struggles to walk correctly. She also has a problem with her fur and it often falls out.
Due to Pollys problems it was decided she would remain with us and live with the other female sponsorship piggies.
Rex is a stunning girl who sadly when she joined us was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
We wouldnt put her through such a risky operation as she would not survive so we have decided she will just stay with us and live with the other sponsorship girls.
Ned and Boris joined the rescue in February 2013, they were both very thin due to previous neglect. The Ned on the left has a serious head tilt which is a very bad one and is underweight also. We think this is either due to previous E coli or a serious infection which wasnt properly treated and has left him with this head tilt. It has now settled and hasnt deteriated anymore and we are therefore happy with his progress. He will remain with us as any alterations to his name confused him grately.
Boris was extremely thin when he arrived. He has now gained weight and is doing much better.
Meet Tilly. Tilly joined us along with 4 other girls. Sadly one of the girls crossed rainbow bridge that evening.
Tilly was very poorly when she joined us- very underweight, lots of scabs on her body and very sore and itchy.
Tilly has made remarkable progress and is now a very happy healthy girl- she is stunning! Tilly still does recurring skin problems and will therefore remain with us.
Meet Hope when she first joined us Sept/Oct 2011:
Her tummy was bald and sore
Her face was so painful, scabby and sore
and she had a serious untreated eye injury.
Her back, legs, face and tummy were full of sores, fur loss, scurvy and scabbing. she was in a real mess but such a lovely girl. She was scared and hungry.
Here she is now:
Here she is now eating a carrot, sat quietly enjoying herself :)
Hope is a lovely girl who has calmed down amazingly since she joined us. She enjoys being cuddled now and loves her food! Unfortunately her right eye will never improve, as the injury she suffered before she came to us has done permanent damage to her eye. She will however have a good quality of life as long as it kept clean and has occasion treatment.
Faith joined us after being given to a lady who couldnt really take on any more guinea pigs, but she noticed Faith's problem took her and contacted us.
Faith has a very bad head tilt which has been caused by an infection which has spread to her brain. The infection has now gone but has left lasting damage to her brain and therefore resculted in the head tilt remaining.
Though the head tilt has improved (she used to fall over regularly to one side) this will remain for the rest of her life. Any routine alterations disorientates Faith and she runs around in circles and becomes very distressed. Due to this we feel for her welfare she needs to remain with us, therefore Faith has become a sponsor piggie :)
