    Rescue centers/Animal shelters in Sweden?

    I have been trying to find a rescue center/Animal shelter in Sweden that also takes in guinea pigs, but with no luck! I live in Jönköpings län, but the location isn't that important. Do we even have this sort of thing in our country?

    In Norway we have "Dyrebeskyttelsen", and they've got cats, dogs, birds and rodents, including guinea pigs. Doesn't "Djurskyddet" take in pigs?

    Do you mean the "Föreningen Djurens rätt"? I think that they might, I've never heard anything. I'm going to have to give them a call Takk for hjelpen!

    No, I was thinking of Djurskyddet ( www.djurskyddet.se), but I don't know if they do take in pigs, but maybe you can give them a call and ask. Good luck

    I checked it out! I also rang them, and asked them if they had any shelter with guinea pigs, and she said not at the moment. I'm actually thinking of starting one, that's why I asked. Thanks for the help, I had really no idea where to look!

    Oh, I think that's weird that none of them took care of guinea pigs. I think that Dyrebeskyttelsen in Norway don't actually have a shelter, but that the pigs they take care of live in fosterhomes until they get a permanent home.

    Good luck anyway
