Alittlebitiffy Animal Sanctuary

  Bringing big hope to little animals

nemo & winston

a little bit about them

Nemo (top) came to our Sanctuary as a day old orphan. Born on February 9th, 2016, he was handraised to become the chubby ball of love that he is today. Nemo's a little loud when he wants to be, particularly if he thinks you have food and you're not sharing! He also loves snuggling underneath blankets, beds, tunnels, really just anything he can fit under. He shows affection with gentle nips and likes to groom your hand if he thinks you aren't up to his standard (or if he thinks you need to smell more like him!).

Winston (below) was born at the home of our foster carer in June, 2016. His mother came from a backyard breeder so not much is known about the history of him and his siblings. Winston is a little pocket rocket of energy who's very VERY vocal when he wants to be! He's social and friendly, and enjoys cuddles with his humans as much as he enjoys snuggling up with Nemo in a fleecey bed.

Nemo and Winston are the best of friends and enjoy tossing their toys around, jumping over their houses, zooming around their set up and relaxing together for a nap. They're both very energetic boys and need a large area to run and play (see 'Ready To Adopt?' for cage size guidelines).

ready to adopt?

Nemo and Winston are available for adoption to a non-breeding, quiet, indoor home with no or older children, with supervised time in a secure outdoors enclosure when the weather permits. A minimum floor space of 10.5 square feet (a 2x4 C&C cage) is required, though the more space you can provide the better it is for play and exercise.

Their diet should consist of high quality grass hay available to them 24/7 for unlimited grazing, 1/8th of a cup of high quality pellets (such as Vetafarm or Oxbow) per pig, per day, and one cup of fresh vegetables per pig, per day. Please avoid mixes containing seeds and "coloured bits", which are incredibly unhealthy and can be a choking hazard. Do not feed any meat or dairy products, these can be fatal to guinea pigs. A list of safe fruits and vegetables can be found at

The pair enjoy being a part of their family's lives, with their cage preferably set up in an area where they can watch you while still avoiding loud noises such as the TV or kitchen appliances. That way they can watch what you're doing, popcorn and wheek when it's time for food, and talk to you from time to time in the adorable way that piggies do.

adoption fee: $40.00

their adoption fee includes their pre-adoption vet check, mite and lice treatment, bath, groom and nail trim
