Butterbean and Mr.P

Updated June 17/19

Butterbean and Mr. P

Butterbean and Mr. P are a delightful bonded pair. Butterbean is the leader of the pair with an adventurous and fearless nature. She loves to know what is going on and will thoroughly investigate any area you place her in. She also likes to “help” when you are sweeping out her run by sniffing at the dustpan and possibly trying to eat the brush! She is feisty and will let you know what she doesn’t like by nipping and occasionally biting. For this reason, she is not recommended as a pet for small children. She aspires to be an architect one day and practices her craft by moving her blue house around the run and occasionally flipping it over to see if it looks better this way.

Mr. P is the quieter of the pair with a more reserved nature. He is happy to follow along on any of Butterbean’s adventurous plans but isn’t likely to explore a lot on his own. He enjoys snuggling with his foster mom and finding the best spot in his run to have a snooze. One thing he is not quiet about, however, is his love of food and will often lead the chorus of calls for breakfast and dinner veggies. His long hair does need a weekly brush that he endures well, though he complains about it! Despite having long hair, he is a very clean piggy and the first long haired guinea pig his foster mom has had that hasn’t needed a bath every other week.

These two guinea pigs would be a wonderful addition to the right family. They are spirited, social, and completely lovable.

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, this one is priceless! Could anything be cuter than a bonded pair of cuddling guinea pigs named Butterbean (2 years old) and Mr. P (3 years old) who hope to add their sweetness to a fur-ever home together.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
