Venues between Hillsborough Hall, Egmont Road, New Plymouth and Oroua Downs Hall, Himatangi. Both clubs hold a show at the same venue.  So double shows.

NEW ZEALAND UNIQUE AND RARE GUINEA PIGS

Guinea Pig (Cavy) Club to support and promote pedigree guinea pig breeds created here in New Zealand.

Our unique breeds were created in recent years and back in the 1970's, with all breeds originated by exceptional New Zealand Cavy Judges (NZJA Judges) who spent several years establishing the special breeds they are today.  The club congratulates them all for their accomplishments.

Connected with Independent Cavy Clubs, members are continuing to breed and exhibit our exclusive guinea pigs, bringing numbers back up and aiming for success in the pedigree main shows.  Independent Cavy Clubs are the only clubs that supports our unique kiwi breeds and exhibitors.  You can not find them anywhere else.
