Independent Cavy (Guinea Pig) Clubs


New Zealand Unique Cavies

The club caters for Cavy Pedigree Breeds that are Unique and Rare in New Zealand.  Some of our unique breeds started in the 70's and are still exhibited at shows today.  They are an important part of our cavy history and is great to see some of the breeds doing well.  Our patriotic and rare breeds are New Zealand Plumes, New Zealand Peruvians, Tweeds, Bonnets, Pandas and DE Whites. New Zealand Unique Cavies are to promote the showing of our unique and rare breeds in Main Shows across the country at all Independent New Zealand Cavy Clubs and to help the breeds and the exhibitors be successful.
