Howard is a very big 2 ½ year old unneutered boar. He is extremely social and loves to be held and to sit on your knee. Howard has never had a buddy and, at his age, it may be difficult to pair him with another boar. Howard will be fine as an only guinea pig. He would love a wife, but would need to be neutered prior to being paired with a girl. He enjoys a wide range of veggies (spring mix, tomatoes, carrot, broccoli, green peppers, coloured peppers, kale, cucumber, celery, spinach, apple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and dandelion greens). He’s indifferent to hay, but loves to sit in a pile of it. He is fostered in a home with cats and dogs (cats will sit on top of the cage and the dogs bark, but he bothered by it). Howard would be fine in a home with older children that understand how to handle small animals.

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.
