On this page are some of the guests staying at Bobtails until they can find a new family of their very own. Adopting a guinea pig shouldn't be taken lightly, we can live for over 7 years and need lots of room to live. Then of course there's all that food to pay for and vets bills when we're feeling poorly.

If you can't find a guinea pig that you think might fit into your life on this page, why not visit us, there are always lots of guinea pigs to cuddle and you might make a new friend.


Guinea Pigs for Adoption

Poole & Paignton - TO BECOME PERMANENT RESIDENTS Feed me on eBay
***YOU CAN HELP FEED US ON EBAY - Simply click on the eBay icon***
This pair of neutered cuties came to us from separate litters. Poole, the tri coloured one was born as the only male in a group of five on 26th September 2013. He had to be separated from his mum and sister so that he didn't breed with them. Paignton, the chestnut agouti who looks like a hedgehog, was born a few days later, on 29th September 2013 and was an only child (hence his larger size). He had to be split from his mother for the same reason. We were delighted to find that they got on so well when we introduced them - it's been a bit like match.com. Paignton currently has a few health problems that we are sorting out, and therefore these two are not available for rehoming but have become permanent Bobtails residents.


Queen Anne's Lace & Carotene - WE ARE IN OUR NEW HOME
These lovely ladies arrived at Bobtails along with three other piggies after being found tied in a plastic hessian sack by a man walking his dog in a park in Crawley one morning. Queen Anne's Lace is smooth and black and white and Carotene is crested and agouti. We estimate these ladies to be aged approximately 1-2 years. You can see Crumble looking approvingly at these lovely ladies in the background. Queen Anne's Lace & Carotene are looking for a home together. Queen Anne's Lase & Carotene have now been successfully rehomed together.


Hipak & Redhild - WE ARE RESERVED
Hipak is a Texel agouti piggie and Redhild is a ginger smooth coated piggie. Both ladies were born in February 2013 and came to us because the child who previously owned them became bored of them. They are a sweet pair of squeakies who are looking for a home together. Hipak & Redhild were recently rehomed to live with Hazel who has since passed away and so they came back to us. They have now been reserved once again subject to a home check and we hope they will bond with Crumble.


Crumble is a handsome tri coloured Abby. He is aged 3 years. Crumble came to us because his previous owners were moving and they had no room to keep him. He is looking for a home with a female piggie. He was neutered on 20th May and will be ready for pairing from 17th June. Crumble has now been successfully rehomed.


Snoopy is stunning satin white piggie. He has obviously been splashing his cash on some great grooming products as his fur just shines. Snoopy was previously adopted from Bobtails along with his father and brothers, and they lived happily together for several months. However, Snoopy has recently decided that he is just too cool to live with them now that he is all grown up, and he would rather like a lady to live with. Snoopy was born on 23rd March 2013 and he has been neutered. What a great profile photo Snoopy - if that doesn't bag you a lady we don't know what will. Snoopy has now been successfully rehomed.


Arlie & Amberley - WE NEED A HOME Feed me on eBay
***YOU CAN HELP FEED US ON EBAY - Simply click on the eBay icon***
These two neutered male guinea pigs were born in August 2010. Arlie is a real mixture: Abyssian cross Sheltie cross, goodness knows! He is ginger and black and very friendly. Amberley is agouti and a little more nervous but he does still like a cuddle. They are looking for a home together. Arlie & Amberley are being sponsored this week by Sue Sleeman. Thank you for your support and kindness.


Piggle is a neutered male, who is 6 years old. He was previously paired with Iggle and due to Iggle's ongoing health problems, they became Bobtails residents. Iggle has now sadly passed away and as Piggle is fit and healthy, he is able to be rehomed. Piggle has now been successfully rehomed.


Alvis & Adley - WE ARE IN OUR NEW HOME
These very cute pair of baby brothers were born on 17th May 2014. Alvis is black with a white back foot and Adley is black with a white front foot, which is the only way we can tell them apart! They came into Bobtails as they were the result of an unwanted litter. They have now been successfully rehomed together.


Gary - I AM RESERVED Feed me on eBay
***YOU CAN HELP FEED ME ON EBAY - Simply click on the eBay icon***
Gary is a wonderful mixed up cross breed piggie. He is 6 years old and he has been neutered. He looks a bit like he has one of those rats tail hair styles that were all the rage in the 80s. We were told that Gary is shy but we have found that he is anything but shy. Delia said that he was that confident when she was bathing him the other day, that if he had had a loofah handy he would have been standing up scrubbing his armpits and singing badly. Gary is a friendly and charming piggie and, unsurprisingly he was quickly reserved to live with two ladies. Gary is being sponsored this week by Anne Salminen, Roger Adamek (in the USA), Claire Evans and Sally Campbell. Thank you for your support and kindness.


Sugar - I AM RESERVED New Arrival
Sugar is a super cute smooth white lady born in July 2008. She was immediately reserved on her arrival by piggie mad Brad & Elise and we hope that she will integrate into their colony of piggies.
