Here are the small furries, reptiles, rodents and birds that don't fit into any other category, but they still need a loving new home. This webpage is updated regularly.

All our animals who are ready for adoption are also shown on the National RSPCA “Find a Pet” website, where they have lots of free online help and support, if you are considering adopting a pet or have just taken a new animal into your home. We are always happy to give help and advice about re-homing an animal.


If you would like to offer any of our animals a new home please call our Branch Manager Julia Tucker on 0161 286 2503 or email rspca.altrincham.cheshire@googlemail.com


Meet our lovely Paco and Taco.

Paco and Taco are a pair of castrated male guinea pigs approximately 6-7 months old.

Paco and Taco came into our care as part of a large case of guinea pigs. Paco is the lilac and ginger and Taco is agouti and ginger in colour.

Paco and Taco are nervous boys by nature, but once settled in their home and given time and patience to bond with their human family they will become quite friendly as they have in their foster home. They absolutely adore each other and are very chatty together.

Paco and Taco are looking for their forever home together

This tiny little fella is Robin, he is a young adult male zebra finch.

Robin came into our care via Rspca inspectors after he let himself into someone's bathroom, he was never claimed so came into our care for rehoming.

Robin has been health checked by an avian specialist vet and has been given a clean bill of health.

Robin is a very active, vocal little fella. He is looking for a new home where he will be bonded with other zebra finches and live a life with plenty of space to fly freely in an avairy.

Dick and Dom are 2 mischievous young male degus.

They love playing and exploring their surroundings and are always snuggled up together.

They are not too used to being handled yet but are coming on leaps and bounds in the foster home and will come and take treats from your hands.

They have been health checked by an exotics vet.

Gavin, Graham and Gunther are a gorgeous trio of male guinea pigs. They came into our care via Rspca inspectors from a multi guinea pig home where breeding had got out of control.

Gavin, Graham and Gunther are all approximately 6 months old. They have all been health checked by an exotics specialist vet and castrated. We castrate all our male guinea pigs even those in pairs so if at any point in the future they find themselves as a single pig, they can more easily be bonded with a female or group of females quickly meaning they don't have to spend a long time as a sad lonely single pig.

Gavin, Graham and Gunther are typical young skittish pigs, they haven't had the regular handling baby pigs should have to socialise them in the best way but they are growing in confidence in their foster home and are being handled daily. They are enjoying a healthy diet of unlimited hay and a variety of fresh veggies

We currently have 3 female rats in our care looking for their forever homes. They are around a year old.

The 3 girls are very friendly and are used to regular handling. They came into our care as their owner was moving house and couldn't take the rats with them.

The 3 girls have been given a clean bill of health by an exotics specialist vet so are ready to find their forever homes.

The brown and white is called Aspen, the smaller of the grey and white ones is called Ash, and the bigger grey one with curlier hair and naked patch on her back is Poppy.

Aspen and Ash are independent, they love exploring and doing their own thing. Poppy is a snuggler and will quite often plonk herself down on your lap for some cuddles - she does like to run around but always comes back every minute or so for some fuss.

We have 3 lovely gerbils available for adoption. Chloe, Zoe and Snowy! They are 2 sisters and a brother.

Chloe and Zoe are living together and are looking for their forever home together.

Snowy is living on his own and would like a home where he will be bonded with a group of gerbils. Snowy has been castrated so could live with a group of female gerbils.

They are looking for a home in a tank style set up where they can dig and explore to their hearts content. They are typical gerbils in that they are very quick when handling them!
