Mouse

Mouse, Minnie, Moustache, Tooske, Tilly and Thea come from the Malmokkie rescue centre. They were brought there by private individuals. They had taken over a guinea pig from people who wanted to get rid of it immediately; they were told it was a female. For the well-being of the animal, they added 2 other females. As it turned out, the first was not a female but a male. One of the females gave birth to 3 daughters not much later.
It became financially difficult for the private individuals to take good care of the animals and they therefore decided to contact the Malmokkie rescue center.

Molly

Molly lived with people who didn't take good care of her. She was skinny, dehydrated and covered with lice. It had been a long time since her nails were cut and occasionally she had to sneeze. Fortunately in 2015 she found a family that could get her back on top. Now she can enjoy a new life together with the other guinea pigs in De Zonnegloed.
