Last month two baby guinea pigs arrived at the GSPCA after a lady who was gifted a female guinea pig was found to be pregnant and asked for our help.

The two lovely little bundles of cuteness were named Choc Chip and Panda and after a short stay at the GSPCA were quickly found a loving new home.

Were have just been sent this message from the lovely new owner "You may remember us as Choc Chip and Panda the tiny baby guineas, but we have had a little name change to Billy and Clive."

The 7 dumped Guinea Pigs found in St Martins will be multiplying soon

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:02, 29th Nov, 2012 | 0

After a check over today the GSPCA can confirm that at least one of the 3 female guinea pigs that were found in the same box as 4 males in St Martins earlier this week is pregnant.

We currently have a total of 14 adult guinea pigs at the GSPCA and will have many more in the next month or so.

The gestation period of guinea pigs is approximately 2 months and they often have 3 to 5 offspring which are called pups.  For the vet to identify that at least one is pregnant then she is likely to be at least 5 weeks and due very soon.

7 guinea pigs dumped in St Martins today are now safe and dry at the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:44, 26th Nov, 2012 | 0

Today 7 guinea pigs were found abandoned outside St Martins Church.

All quite young the 7 guinea pigs were found in a very dirty blue box.

This is the second group of guinea pigs that have been found abandoned inn Guernsey in the last month.  Thankfully both groups were found and were brought into the Shelter but the GSPCA would urge anyone that needs to rehome their pets and not to dump them as it puts them at risk.

After a very busy start to 2012 with over 100 hedgehogs coming through the GSPCA Animal Shelter we have now found ourselves inundated with Guinea Pigs looking for new homes.

We always have lots of enquiries for our cats and dogs at the Shelter but many people still don’t realise the many other animals we have looking for new homes.

Winnie pictured above is just one of more than 20 Guinea Pigs looking for a new home at the Shelter.  We also have many rabbits, rats and birds all in need of a loving home.

Springing Numbers of Guinea Pigs & Rabbits

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:21, 7th Mar, 2012 | 1

From a bunny boom to a guinea pig bonanza the Animal Shelter is now inundated with over 20 rabbits, guinea pigs and rats in need of a good home.

From strays, unwanted litters and those that cannot be cared for due to an owner’s change of circumstances or welfare reasons the Shelter is literally bursting with these little animals looking for new homes.

Just last night another stray rabbit was found wandering and we urge any owners that lose their pets to ensure they register their details with the Shelter as we have stray animals brought in every day.
