Rehoming – Profile


Po came into our care with his siblings after being found abandoned in a box.

Behaviour observations on site:

Do you have a loving home for this shy little man?

When Po first arrived in our care it became apparent due to the lack of fur down his side that he had been picked on by his siblings, so through no fault of his own had to be split from them. Since being split and his wounds healing Po has shown what a positive Po-tato he can be and has already shown some improvements especially for mealtime and when sitting. Despite his progress Po can still be a very nervous piggy so would benefit from a patient family to help him settle.

Po and his new female friend/s will need a 6ft x 2ft enclosure indoors or outdoors (this is for 2 piggies), and we do recommend a run for the garden with a lid.

If you are interested in Po, please fill in an application form and send in any photos you may have of your set up to help speed up the adoption process. Thank you.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the guinea pig. 

Adoption fee: £20 If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.

Medical history:

Due to the extent of Pos wounds when he came in, he did have an infection which was successfully treated with antibiotics, he has also been castrated and has had to have his ears and anal glands cleaned semi regularly, this is something that would need monitoring going forward.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
