Pets hope to get ‘lucky’ this St Patrick’s Day

A group of very special rescue pets are hoping they’ll have the luck of the Leprechaun with them this St Patrick’s Day and they’ll find their forever homes.

The RSPCA is looking for homes for hundreds of animals, including many with Irish inspired names.


One-year-old lop-ear bunny Clover (pictured above) is hoping the four-leafed clover will bring her good luck as she searches for a new home. She was rescued after being found as a stray and is now looking for a new home. She is very friendly and would suit a family home where she can bond with a male rabbit.

To find out more about Clover please contact the RSPCA Cheltenham & East Gloucestershire Branch on or 01242 521958.


Paddy & Gidget are a pair of cute, inquisitive guinea pigs who are looking to find a forever home together. The six-month-old piggies would like new owners who can continue their socialisation and get them used to handling. They’d like a home with older children where they can enjoy a large enclosure to explore and play in. Find out more about them by contacting Newport Animal Centre, in Wales, on or 0300 123 0744 or complete an application form online.

Guinness & Emerald

This gorgeous pair of bunnies (pictured below) are brother and sister and have been paw-tiently waiting for over a year for their forever home. Guinness & Emerald are hoping they’ll have the luck of the Irish this St Patrick’s Day and will find a family to take them home. They are friendly, rush over at breakfast time and enjoy climbing in your lap. Guinness likes to nibble shoe laces and Emerald loves an ear rub! Contacted RSPCA Middlesex North West & South Hertfordshire Branch on or 020 89669688 to find out more.


Three-year-old pig Bailey (pictured below) is – like her Irish drink namesake – sweet. She’s hoping to find a loving new home with her friends, Brandy and Tommy Hillpigger. The trio are friendly, clever and love to snooze in the sun and play in the mud. They’d like a home where they’ll have lots of enrichment and plenty of space to explore. Find out more about the pigs by contacting the team at Southridge Animal Centre, in Hertfordshire, on or 0300 123 0704.

Lucky & Chance

Budgie buddies Lucky & Chance are hoping to have some luck this St Patrick’s Day and finally found their happy ending. The one-year-olds were introduced by RSPCA staff and are now inseparable so need to be rehomed together. They can be shy but love to spend time together and sing. Find out more about them from the Block Fen Animal Centre team, in Cambridgeshire, on or 0300 123 0726.
