This show is the 17th Fun Show Cavy Corner has held and previous venues include Danum Academy, Bentley Pavilion and Hatfield Woodhouse Village Hall and Balby Carr Sports Academy. In addition to entering the show visitors will be able to meet staff from Guinea Pig Magazine. There will a FABULOUS range of items for sale. Watch nail clipping and syringe feeding demonstrations, enjoy tasty home made buns and drinks, children’s creative area and plenty of opportunities to meet like minded people and their adorable small and furry pets.

On top of all this, Vet Kim Halford from Animal Welfare Matters will be at the show giving advice and information!

And…meet Kevin our Facebook star! 

  • All your small furry pets welcome including Skinny Pigs, Rabbits, Guineas, Hamsters and even Rats can come along to take part.
  • Humans welcome with or without pets too!
  • No Cats or Dogs please.
  • All animals attending must be in suitable, comfortable carriers or cages and have access to food and water throughout the event.
  • Please make sure your cages/carriers are fully waterproof at the bottom so it does not damage the flooring at the centre!

Pet welfare is of paramount importance to Cavy Corner and we have Cavy Corner Guinea Monitors appointed to ensure that all animals present are comfortable. If you have a problem on the day please ask and we will try to help. Many animals enjoy coming to events like this as much as their owners but if you have a pet that is very timid / nervous or dislikes being away from home please come along without him or her. You know your pet best.

These are the catorgories for the show.                                                   

Entry forms available on the day or you may print off and bring with you.Entry Form

Most categories are self explanatory but a few words about Rescue Pet of The Year class – this is open to any pet who has been adopted or rescued. And the VIP Veteran class which is open to any elderly or disabled pet or any pet who has ongoing difficulties or special needs.
