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.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said ‘We have never had so many Guinea Pigs at the Shelter.’  ‘We currently have over 40 Guinea Pigs and Rabbits at the Shelter.’  ‘Thankfully I have lots of volunteers to help care for them but we do really need to find them new homes.’

If you would like to see some of the animals we have looking for a new home please go to or call us on 01481 257261
