Pippin, Merry, Frodo and Sam are just four of 80 degus in need of a new home.
They are being looked after by Nanna (Northamptonshire Animals Needing Nurturing and Adoption) in Irthlingborough.
The rodents can live for up to eight years and are awake during the day, making them good pets for the whole family.
They are diabetic so need a balanced diet with no sugar.
Degus live better in communities and are being re-homed in groups of three to eight. For details call 01933 650372 or visit www.nannaanimalrescue.co.uk.
