Welcome to Guinea Pig Re-homing
Guinea Pig Rehoming Norfolk was started by Vikki in 2006 and several local guinea pigs enthusiats got together under the name to help local guinea pigs. Vikki is now taking a rest from taking in rescues as Sophie after a break has returned full force and started her own rescue.
If you have adopted a guinea pig in the past from Vikki and find for whatever reason you are unable to keep them please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and she will still take them back and find them a good home.
The majority of rescue pigs looking for homes will be found at:
As there are no facilities within the RSPCA locally to care for small animals private individuals like ourselves take responsibility for their care and re-homing working closely with larger organisations in the area. Sophie works in the Norfolk / Suffolk borders with her rescue http://eagpr.webs.com/ . Vikki occasionally takes in guinea pigs from the Norwich area for re-homing www.norfolksmallfurries.co.uk
We all hope to work with pet owners to send their guinea pigs that are unwanted, or unable to be kept, to a local space for re-homing rather than then ending up in pet shops or at auction. We do not accept guinea pigs that are from breeders who irresponsibly breed for profit when the guinea pigs are fit and well and housed appropriately as this would perpetuate the problem. If any guinea is not in good health we will help them but hope to educate their breeders in the process or do our best to prevent them breeding in the future. People who do breed guinea pigs responsibly usually have homes for them or can provide homes themselves so it is not often we are contacted regarding these guineas.
No matter why a guinea pig is is need we will do our best to find a place for them, it is not the fault of the guineas how people treat them sometimes.
All guinea pigs that come in to the rescues are preventatively treated for mites, fleas and worms. They are quarantined to ensure they are in good health. All homes will be vetted, and guinea pigs come with a starter pack of food and hay to avoid any upset tummys when they go to their new homes.
We are all non-profit making, but ask for a voluntary donation when re-homing to help towards the cost of veterinary check, treatment, transport, quarantine, collection and delivery if necessary.
We do not re-home guinea pigs as companions for rabbits, as they are not suitable companions. They require different diets, a rabbit can easily injure a guinea pig and rabbits can carry some diseases that do not affect them but can be very harmful to guinea pigs.
It is our aim to house any guinea pig in our care in the best conditions possible therefore we have a limited number of spaces at any one time.
