MEET Coco and her best friend Bruno - or, to give him his full name, 'Mr Bruno Wasabi'.

The gorgeous pair of grown-up guinea pigs are looking for a place to call home.

So could you be their next owner?

Coco and Bruno were brought into the RSPCA's York animal home off Landing Lane separately.

But while they were brought in for different reasons, a member of staff at the animal home said they had something in common: they were both 'unwanted, unloved and uncared for'.

While in the RSPCA's care, they have formed a close friendship.

Together, they make a 'lovely little family', the RSPCA says.

They are now looking for a home of their own that will be their 'happy ever after'.

"Coco is a friendly little girl but does not like actually being handled too much," the member of staff said.

"She will come to you for a fuss and especially for some veg.

"Bruno is a confident and friendly boy."

The pair complement each other very well, the RSPCA says.

"Sadly Coco has cystic ovaries and for that reason she will need to be homed to experience guinea pig owners," the staff member said.
