THE RSPCA Hilling­don, Slough, Wind­sor, Kingston and Dis­trict Branch have many rab­bits and guinea pigs that are in need of loving homes.

Own­ing and car­ing for rab­bits or guinea pigs can be great fun and very re­ward­ing, but it’s a big re­spon­si­bil­ity and a long-term com­mit­ment in terms of care and cost.

Typ­i­cally, they can live for eight to 12 years, but some may live for longer.

Both are ac­tive an­i­mals so they need to be able to hop, run, jump, dig, stand fully up­right on their back legs, and stretch out fully when ly­ing down.

Ide­ally, we would pre­fer them go to a loving home to­gether as rab­bits and guinea pigs are very so­cial an­i­mals and en­joy each other’s company.

If you think you can of­fer one of th­ese amaz­ing an­i­mals a happy loving hom­ing then please ring the RSPCA Hilling­don branch on 01895 833 417, or visit our web­site www.rspc­ahilling­don­clinic. org.uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
