Chuffnut Cavies (Australian Cavy Sanctuary Melbourne Shelter) is a guinea pig dedicated rescue shelter that services the entire Greater Melbourne region, and beyond! We have over 200 adoptable guinea pigs in the shelter. So many that all our time is taken to care for these lovely animals.
Due to time constraints, we are over 2 years behind in posting new listings of our adoptables! So, please, consider adopting through Victoria's longest-running, most reputable guinea pig rescue shelter. We have been rescuing guinea pigs in need, often from terrible backgrounds of neglect and abuse, rehabilitating then rehoming them for almost 10 years. Our team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the care and welfare of these innocent and endearing animals.
We have long hairs, short hairs, abyssians, rex, males, females, adults, bubs, aged piggies...we have the piggy to suit every home!
Please consider adopting your next pet from Chuffnut. We offer a lifetime of help and advice to all adoptive homes, as well as a full return policy - if you are no longer able to keep your guinea pigs, we ask that they be returned to the shelter for a full adoption fee refund.
We also have some desexed females and a male for adoption - their adoption fee is $50. We can also arrange desexing, at the expense of the adoptive family.
We treat all our animals against mites, lice and fungal. Any at-risk animals will also be treated against issues such as coccidiosis and other gut parasites.
Animals come nail-clipped.
We do have some special needs animals in the shelter that will be adopted to the best of loving homes only - several guinea pigs are blind in one eye, some have also had an eye removed due to injuries! We have a special little boy, called Wobby, who has a congential disorder that causes him to wobble his head around when he is attempting to stand still! But despite their "shortfalls", each of these piggies is perfectly healthy and will live a long and happy life in the care of the most loving of homes.
Our adoption link appears to be non-functioning at present, so we ask that all prospective adoptive homes either respond to this PetRescue post, and we will forward a copy of our adoption enquiry form, or email Lil at email@example.com
We look forward to finding you the perfect new
PLEASE USE EMAIL - we have very poor mobile phone reception at the shelter so it may take many days before any messages are received. Thank you for understanding
