Did you know it is Guinea Pig Awareness Week?

Every year the GSPCA helps guinea pigs in many ways from strays, to those owners keep to give up to find a home to investigating cruelty.

Nicolle Morgan GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Guinea Pig Awareness Week, or GPAW, is a week of activities dedicated to improving the health and welfare of guinea pigs!”

“The 22nd - 28th March is the first ever awareness week for guinea pigs, organized by Burgess!”

Due to Coronavirus the GSPCA is only operating essential services.  All of our rehoming is now online, telephone and through the post as we are avoiding visitors to the Shelter at all costs in line with advice from the States of Guernsey.

With animals still arriving and being rescued, unwanted, stray and abandoned the GSPCA have to look at ways we can help rehome animals in our care.

Charles arrived at the GSPCA at the end of April as his owner could no longer care for him.

Guinea pigs are thankfully found homes quite quickly from the GSPCA and last Monday Charles found a loving new home.

Lisa Le Poidevin new owner said last week “Charles has settled in quite well.” 

“He seems a bit nervous when it's cuddle time but with some hay or a treat around he relaxes again “

“I'm still just swapping my piggy Toffee's hay with his and they both seem happy enough with the new smells.”

Each March around the world rescues celebrate and promote Adopt a Rescue Guinea Pig Month.

March last year we had none at the Shelter looking for homes but this year we have 14 currently in our care.

All 14 are males and two are awaiting their homes, which are Cassiopeia and Alfie.

The 12 currently in need of a loving new owner are Yertle, Terrific Whatzit, Raphael, Mudface, Morla, Moriarty, Michelangelo, Mack, Filimore, Filigree, Donatello and Alderman Ptolemy.
