A female guinea pig who was rescued during a hoarding house case has been adopted by TV presenter and animal rights activist Wendy Turner Webster.
Three year old guinea pig, Mavis, came into our Home after being rescued by our Animal Welfare Officers during a hoarding house welfare case.
Our Officers were helping a number of cats who were living in the house, when the owner alerted them to Mavis. Unfortunately the owner could no longer cope with the amount of animals living in the house and had also found that they were allergic to guinea pigs.
Our Officers brought Mavis back to our Home, where she was settled into a spacious guinea pig cage in our kitten block, health checked and neutered by our Vet Team and given lots of love and care from our Cattery Team. Though we usually rehome just cats and dogs, Mavis was an exception because she came from a welfare case, and we knew we could easily find her a home with a loving owner, like Wendy!
Wendy, who has previously adopted seven guinea pigs from us over the years, currently has one ex-Mayhew guinea pig called Barnaby Gonzalous Prince Toad and thought Mavis would be the perfect companion for him.
Wendy, said: “We have one guinea pig already from The Mayhew, and we know that they are companion animals, so when the opportunity came to get Barnaby Gonzalous Prince Toad a friend, it was too good to turn down.”
“I’m sure that Mavis will be very happy at our home.”
Wendy is back with her new crafts and upcycling show with Julie Peasgood, Crafty Beggars. Catch it on Community Channel every week. Find out more here.
