Featured Animal Friend at Wolves Lane: the Gwinns!

Gwinn 1

Hi, I’m one of the two resident guinea pigs at Wolves Lane Garden Centre – we’re known as The Gwinns!

There are two of us and we look very similar but really we are very different. I’m very noisy and like to talk all the time but my brother is really quiet. Can you tell which one I am?

My brother and I share a big hutch in the barn with our best friend, Piggy, the lionhead rabbit. The barn keeps us safe from foxes and warm at night and in the day we go outside to eat lots of grass.

We love to have visitors and hope that you will come visit us soon at Wolves Lane Garden Centre!

We’re at the back – just walk through the greenhouse by reception, out the back and we are near the chicken coop and the barn. There are signs to show the way.

Or just ask Reception to point you in the right direction!

We’ve got lots of rescue animals that have found a new home at Wolves Lane Garden Centre.

Come take a look at our new website Animals page that tells you all about them!

The animals are at the back of the property – just walk through the greenhouse by reception, out the back and look towards the chicken coop and the barn. There are signs to show the way. There are also terrapins and koi in the Palm House to visit.

Or just ask Reception to point you in the right direction!

 

 

Featured Animal Friend at Wolves Lane: our Lionhead Rabbit

Bunny_Mandy

A message from”Piggy”, our white lion-head rabbit:

Hello, I’m a white rescue rabbit called Piggy – I’m called Piggy because I have a smudge on my nose that makes me look like a piglet! I’m very happy in my new home at Wolves Lane Garden Centre.

My best friends are the ‘Gwinns’ – two white guinea pigs that I met when I came here. We share a big hutch in the barn which keeps us safe from foxes and warm at night and in the day we go outside to eat lots of grass.

Rabbits are supposed to eat a range of food including hard food that helps to wear down their teeth that never stop growing. I am not that keen on hard food so my teeth did keep on growing and this made it very uncomfortable for me to eat so the Vet removed my front teeth and now I can eat all the soft food that I like.

We love to have visitors and hope that you will come visit us soon at Wolves Lane Garden Centre!
